Western Ghats, and on to the hillocks of the Eastern Ghats-a contiguous woodland until a few thousand years ago. Geographically, this range covers the states of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka and, to some extent, Odisha. Within this vast span there are a number of distinct forest types adapted to variations in rainfall, soil type, altitude and fauna. Containing deep botanical knowledge and a wealth of information, this detailed and easy-to-use pictorial guide will help readers identify 190 ecologically important species of native trees and shrubs, including many rare and threatened plants such as satin wood, poplar-leaved ardor, Indian kino, red sanders and rosewood, etc. With growing awareness of the significance of native forests in the fight against climate change, this book is a powerful resource for amateur naturalists, plant explorers and conservationists interested in learning about indigenous flora and working towards their preservation.
