The uniqueness of present study lies in accommodation of recent nomenclatural changes in species, genera and families, which has brought out high diversity in generic and family levels. According to this study, the ‘Flora of Telangana State’ comprises 1911 taxa of flowering plants distributed within 893 genera and 162 families. In addition, information of historical changes in forest cover, vegetation types, review of work done, endemic and red-listed species, invasive alien species, wild relatives of crops and economically important tree species have been provided. Maps of vegetation type and altitudinal zonation were included in this book.

In order to obtain an insight into the relations of the Flora of Telangana with the neighbouring floras, a comparative analysis of ten dominant families were made. An artificial key to the families have been provided according to Bentham and Hooker’s classification with certain exceptions to contain recent changes. The genera within the family and species within the genus have been kept in alphabetical sequence. The keys and descriptions are important aspects of the work and hence special care has been taken based on the field observations and literature
