About the Book

The eleventh edition of this well-known and highly acclaimed textbook has been thoroughly revised and extended to include some new chapters to make it still more useful.

Literally, every section of the Book has been reworked in an attempt to bring it more nearly up to date.

The book is written in a very readable style and aims to provide a modern approach to the study of Bryophyta, Pteridophyta, Gymnosperms and Palaeobotany, keeping in mind the requirements of undergraduate students at universities and colleges throughout India and in some foreign countries. Students preparing for IAS, PCS and various other competitive examinations, at similar level, should also find the book of value.

A special feature of the book is that the text is copiously illustrated with superbly accurate, beautiful and well-labelled diagrams that are usually self-explanatory.
