About the Book:

This book consists of six hundred and thirty nine pages (639). The literature gives identification, availability and the code names by which these plants are known in various cities and areas and also the medicinal uses for which these plants are known. The author has made her best attempt to put the picture of each plant against the description so that the plants are readily identified. She has consulted and taken help from a number of books, chiefly being Wealth of India, (all the volumes in Hindi and English), Flora of British India by Hooker and Benthem, Flora of Madras, Bombay, Delhi, Upper Gangetic plan, Pachmari, and so on. She has also taken help from the Index Book of Chopra's Medicinal Plants, Johri's Index book on Economic Plants, Cactus and Flowering plants, Himalayan Flowers, A.C. Datta's Botany and other reference books given in the Index at the back of the last volume.

The present book is the first in the series of two volumes. However, if the need arises, a third volume shall be added.

About the Author:

The Author is B.Sc. Zoo. (Hons.), M.Sc. Zoology with specialization in Entomology from Delhi University. She has also worked as a research student in Pusa Institute I.A.R.I. (Entomology Division) under the guidance of Dr. N.C. Pant who is a Senior and respected Professor in Entomology. She has 12 publications to her credit in I.A.R.I. Due to unavoidable circumstances, she could not complete her Ph.D. and therefore, to maintain herself workd for 20 years as a Museum Curator in Sri Venkateswara College, which was considered as Non-Teaching job. Since it was her dream to write such a book, she started collecting material. For alteast 15 years she collected the material and there was nobody who would help her in publishing it. Yet her love and desire for the subject continued and one day she came in contact with Ayurved-Vikas Magazine and met the Editor Dr. Ashawni Shastri for subscribing for the Magazine in Harsha Bhawan, New Delhi. Dr. Shastri not only encouraged her but prmised her to make her dream a reality. He has been a great help and a guide in this venture. She continues to feel indebted and grateful to him for the rest of her life.
