The basics are great, but what about going deeper? Jono follows up our Lunch and Learn from a year ago ('One Dozen things FNPS members need to know about Cabbage Palms' - found on the members-only YT playlist) now that his book ('The Palmetto Book') has been published. You should read it, but this L&L isn't a replacement for reading the book - it's a supplement. We'll go beyond what's covered in the book and get an update on LBD. Jono Miller is the retired former Director of the New College of Florida Environmental Studies Program, his undergraduate alma mater. He is a natural historian and activist with 49 years experience in Southwest Florida. Since 1982, he has exhibited a particular interest in our state tree, the cabbage palm, which resulted in his Masters thesis: A Humble Vulgar Tree: Explorations of the Natural and Cultural History of the Cabbage Palm, Sabal Palmetto. Jono has presented Cabbage Palm (Sabal palmetto) research twice at our Annual Conference: 36th Annual Conference (2016) - 'Observations regarding the historic lack of cabbage palms, Sabal palmetto, West of Panama City, Florida. 37th Annual Conference (2017) - 'They died with their boots on: The mystery of variable dead leaf base retention in cabbage palms, Sabal Palmetto', He also co-led a field trip at our 39th Annual Conference (2019) 'Transitions' at Mockernut Hill Botanical Garden: 'More than you thought possible about Cabbage Palms'. Jono has recently written a book on cabbage palms, 'The Palmetto Book' and FNPS members can read about (and order) his book from the University Press of Florida] or place an order with their local independent bookseller, or, as always, on Amazon.
