About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Portuguese

In an objectively and richly illustrated form, this work brings together new and old species of mountainous vegetation that were collected and studied by a methodical scientific approach, and at the same time with a reverence to sample many genera that are still unknown. Therefore, this work is of great importance in exploring the rare species of this biome of the largest rainforest on the planet.

Summary in Portuguese:
De forma objetiva e ricamente ilustrada, este trabalho reúne novas e antigas espécies da vegetação montanheira que são coletadas e estudadas com metódica abordagem científica e, ao mesmo tempo, reverência às amostras de muitas das quais ainda se desconhece o gênero. Por isso, esta obra é de  grande relevância ao explorar as raras espécies do bioma da maior floresta tropical do planeta.
