The authors of the book Asterinales of Kerala have been engaged in the study of Meliolales since the last three decades and this is the result of their stupendous effort. The book gives a brief introduction followed by the characters of the order Meliolales, key to the families and genera. Key to all the species are dealt and placed under their respective alphabetically arranged host families and the fungal genera, synoptic characters of an individual taxon by denoting the name of the spsecies or infra specific taxa. In the descriptive part, the genus with its synonyms, if any, generic description and its type species, schematic representation of the genus in the form of line drawings, followed by its corresponding species is given. The description of each species is nothing but a prologue, carefully re-written in accordance with the Hansford’s Monograph. Nomenclature is updated, wherever needed. At the end of the description of each taxa, material denotes its type and name of the herbarium. Nomenclature of taxa are dealth, relevant references are mentioned and the host index is provided for easy search.
