About this book

From the foreword:

"This book provides a comprehensive coverage of palms giving details such as origin and distribution, morphology, medicinal properties and various value added products of commercially important palms coconut, arecanut, palmyrah palm, date palm and oil palm as well as various ornamental palms for landscape management and much more. A number of palm species discussed herein exemplify the multipurpose character of such palms which merit special consideration for their full range of products rather than for only a single commercial product...I am sure that the wealth of information and references contained in Palms will be of immense value to researchers in general and horticulturists in particular extension workers farmers and agro-industrialist from across the globe, where palm has socio-economic significance. Palms shall also be of much value for the garden enthusiasts wishing to know more about this extensive and economically very important plant family and stimulate readers to grow and use palms."
