According to, May's global estimates how many species of plants and animals, respectively, are yet to be discovered and described from India? 


50,000 and 90,000


3,00,000 and 90,000


3,00,000 and 1,00,000


1,00,000 and 3,00,000


If we accept May's global estimates only 22% of the total species have been recorded so far. If May's proposal for discovery of new species is accepted then there are probably more than 1,00,000 plant species and more than 3,00,000 animal species yet to discovered and described.
