UKT: I am uploading some portions of this book in memory of U Maung Maung Pyone, Lecturer, and Head of Dept. of Botany, Bassein College (now Bassein Univ.), my long lost friend who was like an elder brother to my wife Daw Than Than and me. When I asked my friend repeatedly on taxonomic terms (while I was studying Medicinal Plants of Myan in connection with my research in chemistry of natural product), U Maung Maung Pyone (Ko Pyone to me), referred me to the text book he had used as a student. -- UKT121217
