Having seen the contents in the sample book available in the link below, I can say that Shrikant Ji has done a brilliant work, with unique concept. The pictorial glossary at the beginning is quite helpful for even the novices and will make the journey through the book really enjoyable..
I congratulate Shrikant Ji on my personal behalf on completion of this wonderful project, which was earlier designed to be a hard bound book. Present circumstances have resulted in conversion of this project to e-book format. I hope that this useful publication reaches to every plant lover..

Trees are difficult to identify since they flower for a short duration and the season varies. Leaves are omnipresent and reachable unlike flowers in the canopy.
This out of the box leaf based field guide offers quick and easy navigation for identification of 400 trees of Sahyadri. It covers 333 forest trees, 24 mangroves and 43 urban tree species … read more at Google Play Books.
