The project undertaken by Mr Grégory Beuve, a French Botanist, includes the scientific classification of the plants and trees in Alliance Française de Delhi alongwith emphazing their different properties and uses from the point of view of different cultures.

Mr Pradip Krishen gave up film making to photograph and write about trees for a general audience. Like Darwin, and a score of other naturalists, he has built a life through the simple business of walking.  Published in 2006, his handbook, Trees of Delhi was followed in 2014 by Jungle Trees of Central India, a book which will turn you into an expert tree spotter.
