About this book

The Amazon is a land of palm abundance. Palms are the cornerstones of many environments in the Amazon, especially in wetlands, and are intricately woven into the cultural fabric of both rural and urban peoples. Wetland palms, especially acai in Brazil and aguaje in Peru, supply the most-prized fruits in the Amazon for fruits and ice creams.

These two species, and many more from wetlands, are discussed in detail in regard to their ecology, importance to people and animals, and conservation.
