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.
