Great information, although mentions studies made in Florida soil, but might also be applied to other parts of the world.

Southeastern Florida has a variety of soils, including peat/muck, acidic sand, and nearly soil-freelimestone.  Of course there's no volcanic soils.  

The essential book "Ornamental Palm Horticulture" by Timothy K. Broschat and Alan W. Meerow comes from the Ft. Lauderdale center.

Thanks for that link, there is some really useful information there.  I particularly like the information on identifying and rectifying nutrient deficiencies.

Another nice palm website University of Florida has is this one:

http://www.flmnh.ufl...t/catsearch.htm

Just type in any palm name, and they might have it, plus detailed images of some. It's not complete yet, but I'm working on it at the moment!
