The book is divided into two parts. Part I deals with PLANT ANATOMY covering all its topics beginning from roots to seeds and fruits. The text matter has been kept concise and lucid while considering almost every important example. The diagrams are simple but close to naturally. Topics such as Nodal Anatomy, Anatomy of Floral parts, Fruit wall and seed coat, Ecological Anatomy and Systematic Plant Anatomy will certainly be of larger interest. Part II deals with ECONOMIC BOTANY and offers exhaustive up-to-date literature enriched with comparative tables, on all aspects of the primary necessities of man viz. food, shelter and clothing. Economically important plants and plant byproducts such as dyes, tannins, oils, resins etc. have been dealt separately. The colored photo plates will further augment the value of the book. The book will be fully suitable to students appearing for various universities and competitive examinations like IAS, PCS PMT etc. The volume will be considerably useful in the Middle-East and South-East Asian countries by virtue of its authoritative coverage.
