New Guinea is one of the world's greatest palm diversity hotspots . With around 270 species, the island is home to some of the most beautiful and varied palms, many of which are of great economic importance to rural communities. This detailed and richly illustrated book will be an invaluable resource for all with interests in the rich biodiversity of New Guinea, the largest tropical island in the world.

Anders S. Barfod, Aarhus University, Bioscience Department, Faculty . Barfod, Aarhus University, Bioscience Department, Faculty Member. Studies Botany, Ethnobotany, and Vegetation Ecology. Understanding palm-pollinator interactions has implications for tropical silviculture, agroforestry and horticulture, as well as for our understanding of palm evolution and diversification.

Within Southeast Asia there are over 1000 species of palms and two centers of diversity. Sumatra, Borneo and the Malay Peninsula constitute one such center. The other is the worldAes second largest island, New Guinea, which is estimated to have over 300 species. Palms are generally poorly represented in herbaria mainly because they are avoided by non-specialists. Collecting palms is hard work and unless it is correctly done, the specimens will contain little information. This applies particularly to the large tree palms. The aim of the book is to stimulate interest in Papua New Guinea palms. The guide contains a multi-access key which is very flexible and easy to use even though information is sparse. It is based on 42 simple characters. All technical terms are explained in a glossary. For each of the 31 palm genera in Papua New Guinea the book contains notes on variation in form, distribution and use. Anders S. Barfod (b. 1957) is associate professor at the Department of Systematic Botany, University of Aarhus. Roy Banka (b. 1966) is assistant curator at the National Botanical Garden, Lae, Papua New Guinea. John L. Dowe (b. 1951) has been Botanic collections manager, The Palmetum, Townsville Botanic Gardens, 1992-97, and commenced a Ph.D. in 1999.
