Dr. Larry Noblick’s recent research and conservation fieldwork in French Guiana was featured in the journal Palms, Volume 56(3). The cover photo for the recent issue features the unusual fruits of Astrocaryum paramaca, one of the species Larry studied there recently.

The article by Larry recounts his explorations of the native palm flora there, especially in search of the stemless Attalea palms. Very little is currently known about these species.

Palms is the journal of the International Palm Society, and features peer-reviewed articles on palm biology, diversity, and horticulture.
