This book is about the history of botanical explorations, plant collection, documentation and nomenclature of plant resources of Nepal from the early 19th century to the present. It encompasses comprehensive information on plant diversity, plant resources, ethnobotany and flora of Nepal, especially the Gymnosperms (Cycadaceae – Taxaceae) and Angiosperms (Nymphaeaceae – Apiaceae) described from Nepal, representing all seven provinces and 77 districts of Nepal, and from a wide elevational range: as low as 60 m (Jhapa) to 6400 m (base of the Mount Everest, Solukhumbu), East Nepal. The arrangement of families in the book is based on the APG system of classification, while the genera and species are arranged in alphabetical order.
Emphasis is given to three categories of plants: extended checklist of native and naturalized species; synoptic checklist of uncertain species (lacking sufficient information on its occurrence in Nepal); and synoptic checklist of exotic species (planted or cultivated species) documented from Nepal. An attempt has been made to provide the latest nomenclature of the species, with synonyms, local names and English names, life form or habit; distribution in Nepal, elevational ranges, and global distribution. In addition, information on endemic plants, threatened plants, naturalized and invasive species of Nepal; use-value of the majority of species; and citation of voucher or herbarium specimens, for each species reported from Nepal, are also provided. This book should be useful to a wide range of readers, from students, teachers and researchers in the field of botany, forestry, agriculture, and floriculture, to policy-makers and all who are interested in the plants of Nepal.
