Trees of Delhi introduces you to every tree you are likely to see in the city or in semi-wilderness areas like the Ridge. You do not have to be a botanist to enjoy this book: everything is explained in simple language. Nor do you have to live in Delhi: cities like Jaipur, Lucknow or Bhopal have substantially the same tree flora as Delhi. And even in wet, coastal cities like Mumbai or Calcutta, this field guide will help you recognize many of the trees youll see around you. Extensive colour pictures and clear instructions on how to use the annotated Leaf Keys make identification of individual trees easy.
