Dear Aroiders,

    Yes, Dan is correct: plantarum.com.br is not the biggest book seller in 
Brazil. By now, they were most interested in distribute their books within 
Brazil, so they may not so fast with worldwide internet commerce. In 
addition, Dan was correct when he said that Harri Lorenzi is almost the 
entire time in field trips or writing the books. He is the owner and the 
bookwriter! (and also the field man) By the other side, his books has much 
more research on it that most (fastly arriving) horticulture books I have 
seen around. Just try this.

                        Very best wishes,
