Glossary of Palm Terms and Palmweb

The European Network of Palm Scientists (EUNOPS) has compiled and published a glossary of terms which is available in a searchable format from the link below. This is an extremely comprehensive directory of terminology and covers palms and cycad terminology worldwide - not just in Europe.

The information is based on the glossary in Dransfield, J., N.W. Uhl, C.B. Asmussen-Lange, W.J. Baker, M.M. Harley & C.E. Lewis. 2008. Genera Palmarum - Evolution and Classification of the Palms. Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
