From the Jacket:

Acquaintance with nama (names) and rupa (character) is very important for identification of plants. Though their importance was recognized by ancient seers namarupajnana has developed recently as a part of Dravyagunavijnana in which the subject of identification of plants is studied in all aspects e.g. ancient and medieval approach to characterize the plants by way of names and synonyms, pharmacognosy proper and discussion on drugs which are still unknown or used differently in different regions of the country.

Namarupajnana has been prescribed as a subject under the postgraduate course in Dravyaguna and is also a portion in undergraduate course in the subject. The present book is the premier publication on the subject and would serve as a guide for students, teachers and research scientists.
