We will be rolling out several small fixes mid-day today (Jan 29.) We do not anticipate any disruptions or problems, but f you spot any unexpected issues after 12 noon (PST), please report them in the designated thread in the DG Site Updates forum.
THis is supposedly the palm bible, and it is a pretty thorough run down of all the genera of palms in the world. Book is kind of bulky and heavy. And it only goes to the genera level- most species are missing from it. It is mostly text, with a few black and white photos, and a small color photo section in the front of the book. Very dry reading, but well researched and accurate. Needs to be updated, though. For a thick papaerback, pretty well bound and holds together for at least 5-10 years.
