About this book

Language: Portuguese

One of the goals of this work is to characterize the dynamics and interrelationships of the natural processes in the field of plant science allied to geology, geography and biology.

The author Orlando Graeff has undertaken trips and expeditions in Brazil and neighboring countries since the 1970s, accumulating a wealth of knowledge about their ecosystems, from forests and fields to savannas and caatingas.

This book is devoted to his career, and seeks to rescue the knowledge of primordial botanical landscapes, synthesizing it, updating it and forming a new database for the interpretation of Brazilian nature. This book is a guide for those who come from any area of knowledge, and wish to better understand Brazil's natural landscapes.
