About the Book:

The book entitled Plant Diversity in the Himalaya Hotspot Region, edited by two eminent teachers of Plant Science, Prof. Abhaya Prasad Das and Prof. Subir Bera, is an attempt to review the works on flora and vegetation all along the Himalaya Hotspot region and extending to the North-east India. Apart from major categories of Plant Kingdom (algae, bryophytes, pteridophytes, gymnosperms and angiosperms) and microbial groups like bacteria and fungi were also included in the volume.

Article in this 2-volume book has been presented under eleven sections: I. Overview (1-article); II. Flora: Extant (11-articles); III. Flora: Extinct (3-articles); IV. Vegetation Structure: Through Remote Sensing (3-articles); V. Vegetation Structure: Migration (2-articles); VI. Vegetation Structure: Functional Attributes (5-articles); VII. Climate Change vis-à-vis Vegetation (4-articles); VIII. Systematics (2-articles): IX. Traditional Uses (3-articles); X. Ethnopharmacology (2-articles); and XI. Conservation Activities (7-articles). In total there are 43 articles in the book.

All these articles are written by eminent and senior scientists from India and other countries like Nepal, Bhutan, Pakistan, USA and Sweden. These articles covered the subjects in depth and in detail, which is possible only by the senior workers.
