Timber Press, Quarto, June 2012. 528 pages, hardcover, colour photographs.
This completely revised and updated edition is generously illustrated with 950 photographs, of which 730 are previously unpublished making this volume valuable as an identification guide as well as a practical handbook. Interesting snippets of history, ethnobotany, and biology inform the text and make this a lively catalogue of these remarkable plants. Incorporating the most up-to-date nomenclature, this volume covers new genera that were not known in 2003, such as Dransfieldia, Leucothrinax, and Tahina, and gives particular attention to those genera that have risen in popularity in recent years, such as Coccothrinax, Dypsis, and Licuala.
