Have you ever visited Floria, looked at a strange tree, and wondered if it was a palm? What are its common and scientific names? This book answers those questions with a basic key, allowing you to make decisions based on leaf color, size, shape, or flower, eventually leading to a precise identification. This book will appeal to tourists as well as professionals. The book lacks helpful photographs, but those can be found in more comprehensive, and less field ready reference works.
