Flora of British India covers moderate brief description, ordinal, generic and specific of the flowering plants and ferns found within the erstwhile British territories in India including Kashmir and Western Tibet. The book has 7 vols: British Indian Botany is represented by some 12-14,000 species collected from Tropical, Temperate and frigid climates, and at all elevations, from the sea level to 19,000 ft. Of this vast assemblage, not a twelfth part hitherto has been brought on Indian Plants together. The area over which each species is distributed, is indicated by districts; these being botanical regions which coincide in the main so closely with the well recognized territorial divisions of India.
