9780719526596: Forests of Nepal

Nepal remained almost completely closed to western travellers until 1949. Although there were British botanists on the first mountaineering expeditions of 1949 and 1950, the first major British botanical expedition was in 1952. This was followed by another in 1954 on which Adam Stainton was introduced to botanical collecting. after these two expedition, Adam Stainton continued on his own and over the next 15 years made 18 journeys, collecting and recording the country more widely than had any botanist ever before. This book, the fruit of these explorations, is divided into 2 main parts: a detailed classification into forest types, and distribution lists and altitude ranges of trees and shrubs throughout the various regions. The introductory chapters discuss climate and topography. The book gives a valuable picture of the tree and shrub flora of Nepal for botanists.
