Palm Trees FDC from MALASIA

FDC Name:Palm Trees
Issue Date:19th MAY'2009
Details:Palm or Palmae or Panamea (also known by the name Palmaceae, which is considered taxonomically invalid,or by the common name palm tree), the palm family, is a family of flowering plants belonging to the monocot order, Arecales. There are roughly 202 currently known genera with around 2600 species, most of which are restricted to tropical, subtropical, and warm temperate climates. Most palms are distinguished by their large, compound, evergreen leaves arranged at the top of an unbranched stem. However, many palms are exceptions to this statement, and palms in fact exhibit an enormous diversity in physical characteristics. As well as being morphologically diverse, palms also inhabit nearly every type of habitat within their range, from rain forests to deserts.
Palms are one of the most well-known and extensively cultivated plant families. They have been important to humans throughout much of history. Many common products and foods are derived from palms, and palms are also widely used in landscaping for their exotic appearance, making them one of the most economically important plants. In many historical cultures, palms were symbols for such ideas as victory, peace, and fertility. Today, palms remain a popular symbol for the tropics and vacations

The following types of palm trees represent merely a small sampling of vast number of over 400 species of palm trees in Malaysia.
  1. Fish Tail Palm
  2. Fan Palm
  3. Serdang Palm
