Résumé :

This is the first book of its kind, helping the reader to identify the wild flowers of the Himalaya, from Kashmir and Ladakh in the west, to the Nepal-Sikkim border in the east. The authors describe some 1500 species of flowers, found in the upper valleys, hills, and higher mountainous regions of the Indian subcontinent. The book gives details of where to go plant-hunting, and at what seasons of the year. There are over 690 colour photographs of plants, taken in the field, and 365 line drawings of plants, made in the field or from herbarium specimens. In all, more than a thousand species are illustrated here. Also included are descriptions of types of climate, geology, altitude effects, and the effects of men and animals on the vegetation, as well as a glossary of terms and a bibliography. This book will appeal to the layman and prove indispensable to the keen naturalist.
