Abstract

[See FA 42, 2269] In the main part of this compilation, some 135 species are listed alphabetically under their botanical names with their common Nepalese and English names, synonyms, and notes on their use, habitat and propagation. Information is also included about the period over which the seed remains viable when stored at room temp., the yield/kg of seed, and germination percentages. The seeds of about half of the species are illustrated in plates. Species suitable for hedge planting are listed in 3 sections: up to 1000 m altitude, up to 2000 m, and over 2000 m. There are also brief notes on propagation techniques, a glossary (26 terms) and an index.
