From the foreword This account of the family Cyperaceae of north eastern India is the first consolidated account of sedges published in the current century for such a large region spreading over more than 250 000 sq. km and covering the States of Arunachal Pradesh Assam Manipur Meghalaya Mizoram Nagaland and Tripura. A reasonably full account of dicotyledonous plants of this region was published about fifty years ago by Kanjilal and others and of the grasses by Bor in 1940. Accounts of several monocotyledonous families were published during the last two decades but some families still remained unworked. The present work will therefore fill a gap in the knowledge of monocotyledonous flora of the area. Cyperaceae is one of the larger families in our country and the present publication dealing with 173 species covers about per cent of the total Indian taxa which are estimated at 350.
