Diversity, distribution and economic importance of living gymnosperms in India


Diversity, distribution and economic importance of living gymnosperms in India



Panjab University Research Journal 56(1-4): 45-87



The paper throws light on species diversity, distribution, economic importance and conservation of living gymnosperms including indigenous and introduced taxa in India. The present study has revealed the occurrence of 101 species, 9 varieties and 1 forma belonging to 33 genera under 10 families of gymnosperms (indigenous and exotic) in India. Cycas sphaerica Roxb. -a native of Mayurbhanj hills of Orissa state is less known endemic. Cycas edentata de Laub.- a native of Andaman & Nicobar Islands is widely cultivated throughout plains of India. One hundred and five taxa are conserved in botanical gardens situated in different parts of the country The Indian Botanic Garden at Howrah and the Botanical garden associated with ICFRE (Old FRI) at New Forest, Dehradun are practically the field gene banks of gymnosperms. The whole town of Kodaikanal up to Sacred Heart College is full of exotic taxa of gymnosperms. Araucaria rulei is still restricted to Govt. Botanical Garden, Ooty.
