THIS book represents the elaboration of materials already published in the Journal of the Bombay Natural History Society. 31 beautiful coloured plates, 35 full-plate photographs and 42 line drawings in the text of 108 pages are ample and excellent illustrations for the guidance of those who desire to acquaint themselves with some of the striking trees that are frequently met with in the plains of India. Detailed descriptions of the more common species have been given, together with notes on their distribution, economic uses and gardening. A long list of popular names has also been added. Suitable English names of some of the species have been coined. The generic name is followed by an appropriate explanatory note. The book is nicely bound and well printed.
