Family: Arecaceae / Palmae

Syagrus botryophora is a gorgeous palm, it has a fairly thin trunk, and the numerous fronds are gracefully arranged. Unfortunately, this palm, though now not uncommon in its native habitat, may someday face extinction due to the destruction of the forest in which it grows, as the forest canopy on which young plants depend for cover has almost been completely eradicated.
