The book "Textbook of Gymnosperms" is not only based on the syllabus prescribed for CBCS course for Honours in Botany (core course – ARCHEGONIATES) but it will also cater to students studying Life Siences-Core Course in Botany and GE in Plant biodiversity. The book follows the new system of classification and has recent information about phylogeny of gymnosperms. The illustrations in the text are of high quality and the authors have tried to bring accuracy to the depiction. The colour plates towards the end of the book are provided focusing on the need of teachers and students during the conduct of practical classes. The text will also serve the needs of any student aspiring for the competitive exams as general topics not easily found in books on the library shelves, are an important part of the book. We are sure students will like the easy- to-learn format of the book.
