Flora Brasileira Arecaceae Palmeiras Pdf Download

The Arecaceae family, also known as the palm family, is one of the most diverse and important plant groups in the world. It comprises about 2600 species in 189 genera, distributed in tropical and subtropical regions of the globe (Dransfield et al., 2008). Palms have a wide range of uses and values for humans, such as food, oil, fiber, medicine, ornament, and cultural symbols (Johnson, 1998).

In Brazil, the palm flora is estimated to have about 370 species in 48 genera, representing about 14% of the world's palm diversity (Lorenzi et al., 2010). The Brazilian palm flora is characterized by a high degree of endemism, with about 60% of the species being exclusive to the country (Henderson et al., 1995). The Brazilian palms occur in various ecosystems, such as Amazon rainforest, Atlantic rainforest, Cerrado, Caatinga, Pantanal, and coastal vegetation (Lorenzi et al., 2010).

The Flora Brasileira: Arecaceae (palmeiras) is a comprehensive and illustrated guide to the identification and classification of the Brazilian palm flora. It was published in 2010 by the Instituto de Pesquisas Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro (JBRJ), in collaboration with several national and international experts. The book contains descriptions, keys, distribution maps, photographs, and drawings of all the Brazilian palm genera and species. It also includes information on ecology, conservation, uses, and vernacular names of the palms. The book is available for free download in PDF format from the JBRJ website [here].

The Flora Brasileira: Arecaceae (palmeiras) is a valuable resource for botanists, ecologists, biologists, agronomists, foresters, students, and anyone interested in the diversity and importance of palms in Brazil.
