About 660 species are described, and all plantsare illustrated by line drawings showing the diagnostic features. The text is written in a style for both experts and those with only a little botanical training.

Editorial Reviews

`A very instructive and comprehensive book, containing information on aquatic and wetland plants ... The author, with numerous co-workers, has summarized an extensive amount of data on the distribution, biology and ecology of the plants (only chromosome counts are lacking), and has created avaluable synthesis. The book is necessary not only for anyone who is interested in the flora of peninsula India, but it is a useful source of information for researchers and students of tropical floras or taxonomy and the distribution of wetland and water species on a worldwide scale.'Zdenka Hroudova Folia Geobotanica 9/97
