|Abstract||Carnatic Flora, S. India, is a project of the Rapinat Herbarium, St. Joseph’s College (RHT), Tiruchirapalli 620 002, India (see p. 2012). The area is between about 11°-12° N 78°- 80° E. Work is set up with a hope to make more materials available than Gamble & Fischer and Fyson could study and to improve their books. A 5 year’s project, financed by the University Grants Commission, was started in c. 1975. It is indeed very desirable that good collections are made, and distributed without delay.|
