This is an old and dusty book I found in my laboratory. The translated title would be "Palms from Brazil", and it was published 5 years after Dr. Bondarīs death. The book is mainly in portuguese, but the last 20 pages have a summary in english written by Dr. George Eiten.

This work is dedicated on the identification of brazilian palms, with classification keys and brief descriptions of hundreds of species. The english part has identification keys to tribes and genera, and lists of species to each genus, and a few considerations on their morphology, habitat and taxonomic issues.
