Medicinal and aromatic plants (MAPs) are globally used for the curative properties due to the presence of complex chemical substances belonging to diverse categories like alkaloids, glycosides, corticosteroids, essential oils, etc. However, with the changing climatic conditions and presence of various biotic and abiotic factors; huge gap exists between the demand and supply of raw materials. Amongst all the factors, cultivation of MAPs faces perilous damage from multifarious assemblage of microbes like bacteria, fungi, viruses, phytoplasmas, phytonematodes which pose serious threat to the total yield and bioactive potential of the plants. The present book entitled ‚ÄúDiseases of medicinal and aromatic plants and their management‚ÄĚ is thus a compilation of all possible scattered information which exhaustively outlines the important diseases of MAPs, their etiology with effective management strategies. The book has different chapters which extensively deals with information on the history of causal pathogen, the distribution range, symptoms, losses suffered, epidemiology and integrated pest management approaches involving cultural, chemical, biological and genetic resources being embraced across the globe. The book has authored chapters from the leading plant pathologists of India who have used extensive range of photographs, graphs and tables for making the content easy to understand not only for students but also to scientists, growers, extension workers and policy makers. Overall, the encyclopaedic nature of this books will be useful for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying courses offered on MAPs and will thus be an invaluable addition to any library.

Matheran is a hill station in the Indian state of Maharashtra, located in Sahyadri ranges of the northern extent of the Western Ghats, about 43 km east of the state's capital city Mumbai. Matheran lies between 18? 58' 48" N and 73? 16' 12" E. The average elevation of the area is 800 m from mean sea level, and covers a total geographical area of 21 km¬≤. The name is derived from two Marathi words 'mathe' means a head and 'ran', a wood or forest, i.e., the name Matheran means a 'wood-headed' or 'forest perched at the top'.
Matheran is an eco-sensitive region declared by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India on February 4, 2003. It is known for its salubrious climate and well-preserved colonial architecture. Matheran is floristically a very rich pocket with almost undisturbed vegetation, visited by a large number of tourists but vehicles are not allowed to this hill station. This book reports the occurrence of 743 species and 20 infraspecific taxa belonging to 438 genera under 121 families of Angiosperms and 1 species of Gymnosperm based on extensive botanical explorations in the area. The book has a map of the area and photographs of plants. For every taxon, up-to-date nomenclature and information on the habitat and phenology are provided. Artificial keys to the families, genera and species are provided for easy and correct identification.
This Flora will be most useful for students, researchers, foresters, agricultural scientists and in general to all the nature lovers who are concerned with the preservation and proper utilization of the plant wealth of our country.
