About this book

The fruit of many years of joint efforts by the authors, this is the first book on Brazilian bromeliads presenting these plants in their natural habitats. Over two hundred photographs, illustrations and maps, with a text based on eighteen years of field studies and an extensive bibliography, reveal fascinating aspects of bromeliad taxonomy, physiology and ecology, as well as their relationships with wildlife and man.

“With his painstaking studies, in this book Elton Leme seeks to portray the neglected aspects of Brazilian nature, through the magnificent photography of Luiz Claudio Marigo.”
– Landscape designer Burle Marx
