About this eBook

Preface The present book is a com pilation o f characters o f Angiosperm Families, made up-to-date and their Genera all arranged alphabetically in a dictionary. This has been attempted to a general reader interested in Botany and knowing o f plants and their family characters. Author citations have been avoided both for families and genera and the serious reader is advised to refer to In dex Kcwcnsis for authentic information. There arc about 510 families and 13,600 genera listed in the book. Few diagram s are included at the end o f the book to familiarize the reader with cer tain species for easy identification. O f course, for details accounts readers have to refer to ap propriate Floras for nom cnclatural and identifying features o f the species. This book is by no means an exhaustive treatm ent but will cater to the needs o f a formal student o f Botany for get ting fam ily characters all at one place. Similarly, the genera listed are almost extensive for ready reference to fam ily and then to the family characters. While listing the fam ily characters, certain im portant genera are included under each family which will enable the reader to rem em ber the family characters, and hence, easy identification. The book is divided into four sections, namely PA R T I PART If PART III PART IV PART V
Family Descriptions Genera Nam es w ith Families Classifications o f Angiosperm s and Their Com parative Study Econom ically Useful Plants Diagrams for Identification
A ppendices arc included like econom ically important genera, poisonous plants, and im por tant classifications like Bcntham and Hooker, Englcr and Prantl, Taktajhan and Dahlgrcn. A com parative account o f all these classifications is also appended to. The ultim ate goal ofT axonomy is to arrive at a truly phylogenetic classification which is really far from achieving. These classifications, which arc included, lend a support to the evolution o f classifications from the days o f Linnaeus to m odem times with added information from time to time. Thus, there arc 200 fam ilies in Bcntham and Hooker s classification and 510 families in the most m odem clas sification. Thus, there is a tendency to increase the num ber o f families by bifurcating with in crease o f knowledge. The book will be greatly useful to students o f Botany, Pharmacology, M edicinal Botany, Mcdicinc, Hom oeopathy, Forestry, Horticulture, Biotechnology, Ecology, and Environmental sciences as a rcfcrcncc book.
