"All in all this is a most attractive and potentially useful palm book for beginners in Florida."--J. Dransfield, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
of South Florida
This is a book for those who are interested in palms but who have not mastered the highly technical method or vocabulary of the botanists. Stevenson's approach emphasizes apparent similarities that may be of more significance to the amateur than minute floral differences by which botanists determine relationships between species. And his hand drawn illustrations highlight specific features of the overall plant or of particular components that serve to identify it from its relatives.
