 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The pre-independence floristic studies in Indian subcontinent prompted Sir J.D. Hooker to the conclusion that "India has no flora as a separate entity but is an admixture of the floras from adjacent countries". However, post-independence attempts have convincingly demonstrated that India has a flora of its own. India has about 33% taxa endemic and is reported to harbour more endemic species of plants than any other region of the world except Australia. It has also approximately half of world's aquatic flowering plants. There findings are the result of extensive and intensive studies in our country. Although so, still there are certain underexplored areas in our country. Khandesh is one such region of State of Maharashtra. Hooker and Thompson (1853) regarded it a botanically distinct sub-province. The earlier attempts, to date, in this region are far from satisfaction. Satpura ranges, part of which extend in Dhule district, are considered as one of the major 'hot spots' of endemic and genetic diversity of plants in India. It, therefore, appeared necessary to intensify the floristic activity in Dhule district in order to know the present status of the flora and understand economic potential. The flora deals with 1133 taxa spread out under 134 families of Angiosperms excluding Poaceae. It is based on the author collections and few of those published earlier from this district. Requisite information about the district pertaining to its topography, geology and soils, general features of rainfall, temperature etc., vegetation types, floristic analysis, the past botanical surveys, ethnobotanical information, endangered, endemic and rare plants, cultivated or ornamental plants, weeds, exotics etc. have been incorporated. Keys to families, genera and species, recent nomenclature, selected synonyms, brief relevant botanical description and notes on habitat, phenology, distribution, local names and uses have been provided. Places of collections are given at the end. This flora will be useful to the needy students and teachers of botany at undergraduate and post-graduate classes, research scholars, forest and other government offices, ecologists, geologists, ethnobotanists, agriculturists, phytogeographers, naturalists etc. in their teaching, research and management or developmental programmes.
