Nayar, Director, Botanical Survey of India: "Silent Valley harbours one of the last remnants of rich tropical forest flora which is vast disappearing. The genetic resources it supports cover a vast specturm of useful species, rice, pepper, banana, jackfruit, cardamom, cinnamomum, aroids, etc. The inventory of species of this forest hold, are important for the in situ conservation of species. "The Malabar Coast was, since ancient times, the sole centre of the spices trade with Arabs and Europeans. van Rheede, the Dutch Governor of the Malabar during early part of 17th century, compiled the monumental Hortus malabaricus and published in 12 volumes containing 794 plates (1678-1703). In spite of several subsequent botanical expeditions to this area, information with regard to the plant resouces of this state is still not fully available to the scientific world. For judicious exploitation of plant resources, an inventory of plants occurring in any given area is absolutely necessary. Hence this district flora including the Silent Valley R.F. was undertaken and worked out in detail. The flora of this district comprises 1400 species of flowering plants which constitute about 25% of the species reported in the Flora of the Presidency of Madras, for the then Presidency of Madras comprising present states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Malabar of Kerala State. "The significant findings of this flora include two new genera, six new species, five new records, many endemics and rare plants, many relatives of cultivated plants - being the germ plasm resources and a variety of economically and medicinally important plants.".
