:The IFP had undertaken bioclimatic, ecological and vegetational studies of various regions of South and South-East Asia. For India, maps of vegetation and ecological conditions were published in the same form adopted for the whole world in the “International Map of Vegetation and Environmental Conditions” series. Twelve maps at 1:1,000,000 scale were published, covering peninsular India and part of the Indo-Gangetic plains. Each map is accompanied by six inset maps at 1:5,000,000 scale giving information on 1) Administrative divisions and hypsometry; 2) Geology and lithology; 3) Soils; 4) Bioclimates; 5) Vegetation types and 6) Agriculture. The twelve maps were published between 1961 and 1978. The Madras map covers an area of 105,250-sqkm. The latitude extends from 12o to 16o north and the longitude from 78o to 82o east. It is bounded by Cape Comorin map in the south, Mysore in the west and Godavari in the north. Chennai (Madras) is located in this map.
