Planned publications

A book project titled "Invasive Alien Plants in Indian Subcontinent: An Ecological Apraisal" is currently under print with CABI (UK)  The book is based on invited papers from IUFRO supported and Ministry of Environment and Forest, India sponsored Brainstorming Meeting of scientists from Asia held in Chandigarh in 2009.
