The region selected by the author is that above 6,500 ft round
the hill stations of O o t a c a m u n d , K o t a g i r i and K o d a i k a n a l
and in the first volume we have the descriptive part of nearly 500
flowering plants of which 430 are regarded as indigenous. Prece-
ding the systematic account are a glossary of the commoner terms
used and a key to the Families and anomalous Genera. Keys are
provided for the genera as also for the species. The descriptions
of the species were to a large extent drawn up from fresh material
in the field. The second volume consists of 286 line drawings with,
in the majority of cases, dissections giving floral details.
