The Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park, more popularly known as the Labyrinth Islands, is renowned for its luxuriant coastal, mangrove, tropical evergreen forests, and marine vegetation. The book Angiosperm Diversity of Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park, South Andaman, India deals with different species of flowering plants comprising of 762 species of dicotyledons and 248 species of monocotyledons with 15 illustrations and 144 photographs. The book also identifies the endemic species; provides specific information on local uses of the plants, distribution patterns in the Islands; different threats to biodiversity and suggesting conservation measures.
