Volume: I

This detailed treatise is written for botanists, chemists, biologists as a companion volume to Glossary of Indian Medicinal Plants by Chopra, Nayar & Chopra, and covers the ten-years period 1960-69.

While following the general format of the 'Glossary', taking cognisance of the widespread spurt in research on medicinal plants, the write-up on each plant also includes new type of data/information. Two new sections have, therefore, been added-a section on 'New compounds' gives the chemical structures of new compounds isolated and a section on 'Biological activity' summarises the biological work on pure constituents isolated from a plant. These sections would add immensely to the usefulness of the compendium.

The first part of the volume presents the logistics of the write-up in an 'Explanatory note', which is followed by the description of almost 1200. Finally, three indexes comprising local names, chemical constituents and biological activities have been provided.

The volume will be welcomed by all those working on medicinal plants/natural products who will appreciate that such a wealth of information has been assembled in a classified manner in single volume.

Volume: II

This detailed treatise is written for botanists, chemists and biologists as companion volume to "Glossary of Indian Medicinal Plants" by Chopra, Nayar & Chopra, and covers the ten-year period 1970-79. Volume 1 (1960-69) was published during February 1991.

The format followed for Vol. 2 is similar to that of Vol. 1, i.e. the write-up on each plant also includes new type of data/information, viz. chemical structures of new compounds isolated and the biological work on pure constituents isolated from a plant.

The first part of Vol. 2, like Vol. 1, presents the logistics of the write-up in an 'Explanatory Note', which is followed by the description of 1684 plants in 725 pages. Finally, three indexes (108 pages) comprising local names, chemical constituents and biological activities have been provided.

The volume will be welcomed by all those working on medicinal plants/natural products who will appreciate that such a wealth of information has been assembled in a classified manner in a single volume. Volume 3, covering the ten-year period 1980-89 is under preparation.

Volume: III

Contents:

  1. Indian medicinal plants
  2. Indexes
    1. Local names
    2. Chemical constituents
    3. Biological activities
    4. Chemical structures.

This detailed treatise is written for botanists, chemists and biologists as companion volume to Glossary of Indian Medicinal Plants by Chopra, Nayar & Chopra and covers the five-year period 1980-84. Volume 1 (1960-69) was published during February 1990 and volume 2 in April 1991. The reprint editions of these volumes have come out in 1993 which contain a new index of chemical structures. Thus, these volumes have four indexes each.

The format followed for Vol. 3 is similar to that of Vols. 1 and 2, i.e. the write-up on each plant also includes new type of data/information, viz. chemical structures of new compounds isolated and the biological work on pure constituents isolated from a plant.

The first part of Vol. 3, like preceding volumes, presents the logistics of the write-up in an 'Explanatory Introduction', which is followed by the description of 1600 plants in 696 pages. Finally, four indexes (163 pages) comprising local names, chemical constituents, biological activities and chemical structures have been provided.

The volumes will be welcomed by all those working on medicinal plants/natural products who will appreciate that such a wealth of information has been assembled in a classified manner in a single volume. Volume 4 covering the five-year period 1985-89 is under preparation.

Volume: IV

Contents:

  1. Indian medicinal plants.
  2. Indexes
    1. Local names
    2. Chemical constituents
    3. Biological activities
    4. Chemical structures.

This compendium has been designed as a companion volume to the Glossary of Indian Medicinal Plants by Chopra, Nayar & Chopra (hereinafter referred to as glossary).

All the plants have been listed in alphabetical order and reference to the glossary has been given for those plants which are included therein; in the case of new plants, not listed in the glossary, their local name and distribution has also been included, wherever known, in keeping with the pattern of the glossary.

The distributional range of such plants has been confined to the present political boundary of India. Bhutan and Nepal have also been included because these countries fall within the unbroken chain of the Himalayas and some of the Himalayan species occur in contiguous territories in India, Bhutan and Nepal. Certain plants, although not found in India, are included either because these were listed in the glossary or are sold in the indigenous drug market in India.

The literature cited is on the basis of complete screening of chemical abstracts and biological abstracts and covers the five-year period from 1985 to 1989. It has been aimed to make the compendium exhaustive by including research done anywhere in the world on the taxa found in India, whether indigenous or introduced.

Since the nomenclature of many plants has undergone revision in the preceding decades, the names of plants, including those given in the glossary and in the cited references, have been updated as far as possible to provide currently accepted names.

In cases of change of name, the obsolete names have been given as synonyms according to the following order : the currently accepted name is followed by the name given in the glossary and then by the corresponding name listed in Hooker's Flora of British India or other subsequent relevant literature as addition to Indian flora (if it is different from the name listed in the glossary), and finally by the title name of the plant given in the reference cited, if it is different from the earlier mentioned names. Similarly, the names of the natural orders (families) have also been revised wherever required according to the currently accepted pattern.

There is divergence of opinion among Indian botanists on the merits of maintaining or splitting of a few large genera like Bauhinia, Euphorbia and Pylygonum. In this compendium, therefore, their existing generic status has been maintained.

Volume: V

This detailed treatise is written for botanists, chemists and biologists as companion volume to "Glossary of Indian Medicinal Plants" by Chopra, Nayar & Chopra.

Volumes 1 and 2 each covering a ten year period (1960-69 and 1970-79) were published in February, 1990 and April, 1991 respectively. The reprint editions of these volumes which came out in 1993 and later on, contained a new index of chemical structures.

Succeeding volumes pertain to five year periods. Vol. 3 (1980-84) was published in May, 1993 and has been reprinted in 1995. Vol. 4 was printed in July, 1995. The present Vol. 5 covers the period 1990-94. All these volumes now have four indexes.

The format followed for Vol. 5 is similar to that of vols. 1,2,3 and 4 i.e. the write-up on each plant also includes new type of data/information, viz. chemical structures of new compounds isolated and the biological work on pure constituents isolated from a plant.

The first part of Vol. 5, like preceding volumes, presents the logistics of the write-up in an "Explanatory introduction", which is followed by the description of 1668 plants in 916 pages. Finally, four indexes (144 pages) comprising local names, chemical constituents, biological activities and chemical structures have been provided.

These volumes will be welcomed by all those working on medicinal plants/natural products who will appreciate that such a wealth of information has been assembled in a classified manner in a single volume.

Volume: VI

This detailed treatise is written for botanists, chemists and biologists as companion volume to "Glossary of Indian Medicinal Plants" by Chopra, Nayar and Chopra. It covers the onward period of 35 years from 1960 to 1994 spread over two ten year and three five-year volumes.

Volume 1 (1960-69) was published in February, 1990, Volume 2 (1970-80) in April, 1991 and Volume 3 (1980-84) in May, 1993. The reprint editions of these volumes have come out in 1993 and 1995. Thereafter, Volume 4 (1985-89) was published in July, 1995 and Volume 5 (1990-94) in August, 1998.

A uniform format followed in these volumes starts with an "Explanatory introduction" explaining the logistics of the write-up. The text on each plant also includes new type of data/information viz. chemical structures of new compounds and biological work on pure constituents isolated from a plant.

The volume 6 is the cumulative plant index. It contains names of all the plants, inclusive of synonyms listed in these volumes with page numbers. This would prove extremely handy to the readers to locate if and where the desired plant is described in these volumes.

In addition, it has been possible to compile an errata of volumes 1 to 4 which has been added on in this volume. Its incorporation by the readers in their respective volumes, would greatly minimize the risk of erroneous citation.

The consolidation of data of this just bygone 35 years period which has witnessed an unprecedented proliferation of data both in terms of quality and quantity in these volumes complete with cumulative index, will be welcomed by all those working on medicinal plants/natural products, who will appreciate that such a wealth of information has been assembled in classified manner.
