Oftentimes the economic use of palms is directly related to their structural properties. This book attempts to review palm structure in biological terms rather than merely in anatomical terms. When one realises the difficulties of studying palm structure, this book is to be more appreciated as a comprehensive synthesis of current by: `The Structural Biology of Palms is a most important addition to the literature on palms. This is one of the best introductions to the biology of the palms and this being so, will represent a fine student text.'Kew Bulletin Read more. This book, once again available on a print-to-order basis, summarizes Tomlinson's classic and creative work on palms, and, at least by the standard of technical reference works, is gracefully written and even more gracefully illustrated with adequate photos and excellent line drawings.5/5.

Palms have no lateral meristems or vascular cambium, which in dicot and coniferous trees produce additional xylem internally and phloem and bark externally. Death of the apical meristem in a palm results in the death of that stem in clustering species and death of the entire palm in single-stem species. The Structural Biology of Palms.

  The anatomy of palms does what it says on the cover: it provides the reader with an in-depth survey of anatomical diversity within the Arecaceae. This information is given a phylogenetic focus by the inclusion, as a backdrop to the anatomical data, of the now well-established genus-level phylogeny of the family. Concomitantly, classical biology evolved to molecular biology and then to molecular structural biology. Moving ahead, molecular structural biology is no longer restricted to the study of single molecules, but rapidly gaining competence to understand and predict the behavior of biological systems based on a set of molecules involved and the.
