About this book

Language: Portuguese

Palm trees are among the most important group of plants to humans. They provide food, material for construction, various utensils, luxury jewelry, oil for medicinal use and energy, lubricants and many other industrial products. In addition, they have a prominent place in landscaping projects and recovery of degraded environments.

But there is much more to know about the palm tree. Palmeiras Nativas do Brasil brings together knowledge on the botany, genetics, cultivation and processing of products of native palm trees from different regions of the country.

Summary in Portuguese:
As palmeiras estão entre os grupos de plantas mais importantes para os humanos. Delas podem ser obtidos alimentos, material para construção civil, utensílios diversos, bijuterias de luxo, óleo para uso medicinal e energético, lubrificantes e muitos outros produtos industrializados. Além disso, elas têm lugar de destaque em projetos de paisagismo e na recuperação de ambientes degradados.

Mas há muito mais para se saber sobre as palmeiras. No livro Palmeiras Nativas do Brasil, uma produção editorial da Embrapa Amazônia Ocidental (Manaus, AM) e Embrapa Informação Tecnológica (Brasília, DF), estão conhecimentos botânicos, genéticos, cultivo e processamento da produção de palmeiras nativas das diferentes regiões do país.
