Item Description: University of Pennsylvania Press, United States, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 257 x 180 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Like their penchant for clubs, cricket, and hunting, the planting of English gardens by the British in India reflected an understandable need on the part of expatriates to replicate home as much as possible in an alien environment. In Flora s Empire, Eugenia W. Herbert argues that more than simple nostalgia or homesickness lay at the root of this garden imperialism, however. Drawing on a wealth of period illustrations and personal accounts, many of them little known, she traces the significance of gardens in the long history of British relations with the subcontinent. To British eyes, she demonstrates, India was an untamed land that needed the visible stamp of civilization that gardens in their many guises could convey. Colonial gardens changed over time, from the garden houses of eighteenth-century nabobs modeled on English country estates to the herbaceous borders, gravel walks, and well-trimmed lawns of Victorian civil servants. As the British extended their rule, they found that hill stations like Simla offered an ideal retreat from the unbearable heat of the plains and a place to coax English flowers into bloom. Furthermore, India was part of the global network of botanical exploration and collecting that gathered up the world s plants for transport to great imperial centers such as Kew. And it is through colonial gardens that one may track the evolution of imperial ideas of governance. Every Government House and Residency was carefully landscaped to reflect current ideals of an ordered society. At Independence in 1947 the British left behind a lasting legacy in their gardens, one still reflected in the design of parks and information technology campuses and in the horticultural practices of home gardeners who continue to send away to England for seeds.

Item Description: Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 660 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.3in.Excerpt from The Flora of the Presidency of Bombay, Vol. 1The necessity for local or regional Floras to supplement Sir Joseph Hookers great work, The Flora of British India, which deals with several thousand species of plants drawn from a very wide area and grown under diverse climatic conditions, has been fully recognized by the highest botanical authorities. The inauguration of the Botanical Survey of India and the subdivision of the great Indian continent into regions each forming a branch of the Survey, under the general supervision of Major Prain, I. M. S. , Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Calcutta, has secured the collection of sufficient material to warrant the preparation of regional Floras for certain portions of the entire area. On the extension of the Survey to the Western Presidency, I was appointed by the Government of Bombay Honorary Director of the Botanical Survey of Western India, with Mr. G. M. Woodrow as Assistant; and I was further allowed the services of a paid Herbarium-keeper, a few native plant-collectors, and a small annual grant to provide for travelling-allowances and other incidental expenses. A Herbarium was established at the College of Science at Poona, of which I was at that time Principal, and a real advance was soon made in our knowledge of the botany of the Bombay Presidency. Since my retirement, after 30 years actual residence in India, I have been selected by the Government of Bombay to carry out this, the first of a series of regional Floras projected by the Director of the Survey.

The use of plants as source of medicines and human sustenance has been in vogue since antiquity. India has a rich heritage of use of plants as medicines. Indian systems of medicines utilize 80 percent of the material derived out of plants. There are over 2500 plant species in India having documented medicinal value. Global estimates indicate that 80 percent of population can not afford the products of the western pharmaceutical industry and have to rely upon the use of traditional medicines mainly derived from plants. The literature on medicinal plants is quite vast scattered and not available at one place. A great necessity was felt to have relevant literature at one place providing multi disciplinary information on such resources. The book is based on personal explorations made by the author in all parts of Himachal Pradesh supported by collections identification compilation of information on traditional knowledge gathered during surveys covering status of existing resources utilization potential conservation needs cultivation efforts in herbal gardens and establishment of Herbaria at IRISM Jogindernagar and at Dr. Y.S. Parmar University of Horticulture & Forestry Nauni Solan. The book covers around 700 species of medicinal and aromatic plants of Himachal Pradesh representative of not only the western Himalaya but also of the entire Hindu Kush Himalayan region. The plants described in detail cover Latin name family common and local names distribution in Himachal Pradesh description of the plant parts used market rate chemical constituents formulations uses and cultivation notes. Sketches and colour photographs in the book will facilitate identity and comprehension by the readers. Appendices include information on commercial plants available for trade and drug industry annual outturn of raw material during the past five years endangered species plants for phyto chemical industry dhoop and incense tans and dyes essential oils plants causing health hazards having ethnomedical importance and the species suitable for incorporation in cropping systems in different climatic zones of the state.

Item Description: University of Pennsylvania Press. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Flora's Empire: British Gardens in India, Eugenia W. Herbert, Like their penchant for clubs, cricket, and hunting, the planting of English gardens by the British in India reflected an understandable need on the part of expatriates to replicate home as much as possible in an alien environment. In Flora's Empire, Eugenia W. Herbert argues that more than simple nostalgia or homesickness lay at the root of this "garden imperialism," however. Drawing on a wealth of period illustrations and personal accounts, many of them little known, she traces the significance of gardens in the long history of British relations with the subcontinent. To British eyes, she demonstrates, India was an untamed land that needed the visible stamp of civilization that gardens in their many guises could convey. Colonial gardens changed over time, from the "garden houses" of eighteenth-century nabobs modeled on English country estates to the herbaceous borders, gravel walks, and well-trimmed lawns of Victorian civil servants. As the British extended their rule, they found that hill stations like Simla offered an ideal retreat from the unbearable heat of the plains and a place to coax English flowers into bloom. Furthermore, India was part of the global network of botanical exploration and collecting that gathered up the world's plants for transport to great imperial centers such as Kew. And it is through colonial gardens that one may track the evolution of imperial ideas of governance. Every Government House and Residency was carefully landscaped to reflect current ideals of an ordered society. At Independence in 1947 the British left behind a lasting legacy in their gardens, one still reflected in the design of parks and information technology campuses and in the horticultural practices of home gardeners who continue to send away to England for seeds.

Taxonomy has among its objectives the learning of the kinds of plants on the earth and their names of their distributions and their affinities their distinctions and habitat characteristics and correlation of these facts of knowledge with pertinent scientific data contributed by researchers of related fields. Another objective of taxonomy is the assemblage of knowledge gained. The mere acquisition of the knowledge is sterile unless it is made available to others only then it is of use and an aid to the progress of civilization. This conversion of taxonomic data from a status of sterility to fertility is accomplished in many ways. 330 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 57188

Item Description: Botanical Survey of India, 2014. Soft cover. Book Condition: As New. From the Introduction: A botanic garden can be called as an open museum of living collection of myriad of plants, where trees, shrubs, herbs, climbers, lianas etc. are scientifically arranged, properly labelled based on an internationally accepted classification, and more closely allied groups/plants are specially grown together for better understanding of species. Here in botanic garden trees are confined to a special section called arboretum: gymnosperms including pine trees are arranged in pinetum, screwpines i.e. pandanus are grown in Pandanetum, Orchids are assembled in Orchidarium,Bamboos are nurtured in Bambusetum and Palms are conserved in Palmetum. According to Almond 1993, the Botanic Garden is an ever changing museum of living plants. Chakravarthy and Mukhopadhyay 1990 described Btoanic Garden as a living repository or refugia of plants arranged and maintained on some scientific basis and where the collections are usually labeled or marked for identification. Heywood 1983 of the view that the Botanic Gardens and arboretum are at best represent the last resort for the preservation and maintenance of rare and endangered species.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1820 edition. Excerpt: .When properly dressed, he says, they are a light, mild, and wholesome food. The young and tender stalks, he states, were dressed and served up to table as a good dish; and the fruit of those that climbed up trees, or walls, or on the frames of arbours, were better food than those which crept on the ground. They have of late/ says this author, been much used for pots and pitchers; but long before, they had been used as barrels to keep wine in. Both the wild and the garden-gourd was much used in medicine by the Romans, who also employed the seeds as a charm to cure the ague. (Pliny, 1. xx. c. 3.) Gerard says, the pulp, or meat of the gourd, used as a poultice, mitigates all hot swellings, and takes away the headache and the inflammation of the eyes. The bottle-gourd, (lagenaria, ) grows in many parts of the world to near six feet long, and two feet thick. The rinds or shells are used by the negroes in the West-India islands as bottles, holding from one pint to many gallons. Barham speaks of one that held nine gallons; and the Rev. Mr. Griffith Hughes mentions them, in his History of Barbadoes, as holding twenty-two gallons. The shells are cleared of the pulp and seeds by the negroes in the following manner: --they make a hole at one end, into which they pour hot water, in order to dissolve the pulp, which afterwards is extracted with a stick, and the inside rinsed with sand and water, to loosen and clear away the fibres that remain; they are then dried and become fit for use, and will contain water or other liquids for a length of time. Sloane mentions one of these gourds as large as the human body. Brown says, the decoction of the leaves is recommended much in purging. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781230320977

Item Description: Cambridge Library Collection, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 214 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Well known among his contemporaries for his unrivalled knowledge of aberrant plants, Daniel Oliver (1830-1916) ran the herbarium at Kew Gardens and held the chair of botany at University College London, for which he was recommended by Charles Darwin. Although Oliver never visited India, his expertise in Indian botany grew considerably after he worked with an enormous number of dried specimens rescued from the cellars of the East India Company. In this book, first published in 1869, he sets out the basics of botanical study in India for the absolute beginner. It includes instruction on the anatomy of simple plants, lessons in collection and dissection, and explanations of botany s often dense terminology. Annotated diagrams appear throughout, in both microscopic and macroscopic views. Rigorous and carefully structured, Oliver s book remains an excellent resource for novice botanists and students in the history of science. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781108055628
