Even though the text is in Portuguese, and I have very little idea what it says, the only reason I really like palm books is the photos... and this is one of the best illustrated books I have on palms- excellent habitat photos of every species discussed! Why can't other palm books do that?! All sorts of palm species rarely, if ever seen in cultivation or displayed. Too bad it's not in English, and, I'm afraid, it's probably out of print. But if you see a copy, and love palms, get it!
