Palm Tree Scientific Name - Arecaceae
Palm Tree Types, List of Different Types of Palm Tree
Palms trees are evergreen, mostly tropical plants in the family Palmae (also known as Arecaceae). There are over 2500 species of palms. Most are tree-like, with single trunks and either fan shaped (palmate) or feather shaped (pinnate) compound leaves. The larger palms make dramatic statements in USDA Zone 8-10 landscapes, and smaller palms are grown in containers everywhere.
Palm Tree Info
Worldwide, the family Palmae is composed of over 230 genera and about 3000 species. Only a few of these are indigenous to the continental United States, and most of these are restricted to the warmer regions of southern United States, southern Florida and southern California. However, a large number of exotic species have been imported for ornamental purposes and a few of these have become widely naturalized.
Palm Tree Identification
For identification purposes, palm trees can be divided into two major groups: those that have palmate or fan-shaped leaves; and those that have pinnate, or feather-shaped leaves. The palmate-leaved species are characterized by a leaf structure in which all leaf segments arise from a single point, similar to the structure of a human hand. Pinnate leaves are characterized by leaves along each side of a central axis, similar in design to that of a feather.
Palm trees (Palmaceae) have been termed the princes of the vegetable kingdom. Neither the anatomy of the Palm tree stems nor the conformation of their flowers, however, entitles them to any such high position in the vegetable hierarchy. Palm tree stems are not more complicated in structure than those of the common butchers broom (Ruscus); their flowers are for the most part as simple as those of a rush (Juncus). The order Palmaceae is characterized among monocotyledonous plants by the presence of an unbranched stem bearing a tuft of leaves at the extremity only, or with the leaves scattered; these leaves, often gigantic in size, being usually firm in texture and branching in a pinnate or palmate fashion. The flowers are borne on simple or branching spikes, very generally protected by a spathe or spathes, and each consists typically of a perianth of six greenish, somewhat inconspicuous segments in two rows, with six stamens, or pistil of 1-3 carpel's, each with a single ovule and a succulent or dry fruit.
Palm Tree Berry: Seeds
The seed consists almost exclusively of endosperm, Upper portion of Coconut seed, albumen in a cavity in showing the embryo, embedded in endosperm, which is lodged the relatively very minute embryo. These are the general characteristics by which this very well-defined order may be discriminated, but, in a group containing considerably more than a thousand species, deviations from the general plan of structure occur with some frequency. As the characteristic appearances of palms depend to a large extent upon these modifications, some of the more important among them may briefly be noticed.
Palm Tree: Facts, Trivia, Comments
Palm tree banches and leaves are called fronds. The fruit of the palm tree are refered to as berries.
