About this book

Cycads resemble palms, but are taxonomically quite different, and have become the focus of evolutionary and conservation studies. This volume presents the current state of our knowledge of the classification of the approximately 300 species of cycads. The book provides guidelines for the designation of species, species boundaries and species groupings.


The implications of taxonomic uncertainty and shifting infrageneric concepts in the Cycadales for Red Listing and conservation planning; character evolution, species recognition and classification concepts in the Cycadaceae; morphological characters useful in determining species boundaries in Cycas; comments on Cycas, Dyerocycas and Epicycas; classification concepts in Encephalartos; classification concepts in Macrozamia from eastern Australia; classification concepts in Ceratozamia. (Part contents.)
