  • Appendix IENGLISH AND LATIN NAMES OF VASCULARPLANTS MENTIONED IN THE BOOKWe have listed the names of the vascular plant species mentioned in the text

    in alphabetical order. The English names are given as they appeared in

    quoted papers, followed by their Latin names. Our purpose has been merely

    to identify the litter species used by giving the Latin name, being aware of
