Contents: Foreword. Introduction. 1. Trees (Annonaceae-Zygophyllaceae). References. Index. From the foreword: In India urban green spaces are considered as a part of cultural, economic and ecological traditions. They include a diverse range of species that are unique to the local environment and socio-cultural mores. They not only contribute to the aesthetic scenario of an urban set up, but also to conservation, and sustainable land management. The Deccan Regional Centre of the Botanical Survey of India has been actively engaged in preparing an inventory of the flora of Hyderabad since its inception in 2006. This pursuit is to document the city flora to bring awareness in people and also to execute it before the city's landscape changes due to rapid urbanization. Numerous field visits were undertaken particularly in plant rich zones for almost five years and now the centre has come out with a user friendly publication on the trees of Hyderabad. The publication uses minimum technical terminology but well supported by 1433 colour images to arrive at identities of 271 trees of Hyderabad. I am delighted that this document is completed with the collaboration of forest official from Andhra Pradesh forest department and in consequence could include many introduced trees in enlisting.
