It's the only book on Dominican palms, though nearly all covered in Henderson's palms of the AMericas Field Guide.. however, this book has photos not in the field guide book and I find that useful. Names are archaic and don't reflect nomenclature updates... and photos are sort of 'cheap' looking. But a photo of every species listed is in there (a rarity). No practical cultivational information, but if you need a complete palm library, you'll need this book.
