Recent advances in Bioinformatics applications have enabled improvement of forest trees and its physiological functioning with varying success. This book, “A Digitized inventory of Tropical Timber Resources of India”, is a unique, comprehensive one and provides up-to-date information relating to the natural resources of Indian Forests. The basic structure of the relational database maintains a list of species names and literature sources names, which are linked to distribution parameters like biotic zones, habitats, soil types, state, district and other lower administrative boundary descriptions. Other names (Synonyms and Common Names) are also included. The classification details of the species are maintained hierarchically in a separate data structure. The main source of information is secondary data available in the form of Regional Flora, Monographs and other published literature. Complete details of all references, acknowledgements and authorship for all the collated information will be an integral part of the database. About 320 species belonging to 52 families have been identified as tropical timber resources in India and the same is included in this digitized inventory.
