Jain:"The current book in six volumes has now been put forth by the Botanical Survey of India. This is probably the world's most voluminous and exhaustive account of floristic diversity published on any area of the world of the size of India."The book has fairly detailed account of the floristic diversity of the country, and is unique in the sense that it deals with varied facets. For example, the first volume contains chapters on different recognised plant groups of nonflowering plants and gymnosperms. The account of lower plants will inform many readers for the first time, the unique diversity in structure and life of these rather less known members of plant kingdom."The book is illustrated with numerous colour pictures; several of them are of unique habitats, plants or plant products. "The book will also help in the assessment of major gaps in our knowledge in any groups of the plant kingdom or in geographic regions of the country. "The book will serve as a very useful reference work for some decades and it should be welcomed by researchers in all departments. Printed Pages: 482 with 93 colour, 2 b/w photos and 7 line drawings.
