Hajra, Director, Boatnical Survey of India: "Bihar, one of the largest states in the country with its dense forests has not been fully explored for its plant wealth. The Botanical Survey of India undertook District Flora Project in 1982 at all-India level. Under this project, five districts of Bihar, namely Dumka, West Champaran, Hazaribagh, Palamau and Giridhi were allotted to different University experts. The present work is the outcome of both extensive and intensive botanical explorations in the district of West Champaran and of a critical evaluation of the flora. "In this work, the introdcutory chapter outlines the location, general topographical and climatic features, history of the locality and its people, the past and present botanical surveys, general vegetation types and their floristic composition, economic plants and the phytogeographical considerations of the district. The flora provides a comprehensive coverage of the floristics of the West Champaran district. The District Floras describe all the species of the angiosperms occuring in those areas with generic and specific keys, short descriptions, distributions, localities and taxonomic citations. The works also include indices to species at the end. The families are arranged in accordance with Bentham and Hooker's system of classification. Printed Pages: 534 with 33 photos.
