We need your assistance. But before I ask for your help,

Because of the many requests we have received for a "hard
copy" version of the Virtual Palm Encyclopedia, we have been
working on producing it in a CD format. As you know, the
Virtual Palm Encyclopedia is a world-renowned scientific
reference guide and horticultural resource for palms from
throughout the world.
Produced by the Palm & Cycad Societies of Florida, Inc.,|
this CD will contain over 50 articles on topics ranging from
palm horticulture, conservation, ethnobotany, taxonomy,
evolution, and pests and diseases. The CD will also contain
an inventory of over 1700 known palm species, and photos of
over 500 species; a glossary of over 1000 palm genus and
species names, along with their pronunciations and meanings;
and a listing of over 300 palm common names cross-referenced
to their botanical names.
This VPE 2000 Edition CD-ROM is the first of a series of
updates that will be made available on an annual basis.
