Non-wood forest products: tropical palms. By D V Johnson. 1997. 166 pp. Distribution and Sales Section, Food and Agriculture Organization Viale delle Terme di Caracalla 00100 Rome Italy
Despite having around 2,500 species worldwide commonly growing in tropical forests and being the source of a vast range of useful products, palms have been largely ignored by foresters when designing and implementing forest management plans. In an attempt to right this oversight the Food and Agriculture Organization have published the results of a study which described palms and their products, linked products to specific species and their conservation status, and provided details for additional sources of information. This publication helps to assess the role palms and their products can play within integrated forestry, agriculture, conservation and natural resource management activities. It will be of interest to forestry technicians, international development workers, policy makers and international conservation and development agencies. Non-wood forest products: tropical palms.
