Taxon Profile     (Last Modified On 12/21/2018)
Fl. Madagasc.: Vol. 30 (1945)
APG website treatment: Arecaceae
Notes: Alternate name Palmae (=Palmiers). This treatment draws largely on the excellent Monograph on Malagasy Palms by Dransfield, & Beentje (1995), but provides additional distributional data, and includes subsequent taxonomic changes and additions according to the references given under individual genera. We are grateful for additional comments and corrections provided by John Dransfield.

Summary and Status Directory     (Last Modified On 12/21/2018)
Subordinate Taxon Data:

The data in this table are derived from the corresponding Genus and Species pages. The table provides a summary of the treatment presented in the published parts of the Flore de Madagascar et des Comores, together with a summary of the data presented here in the Madagascar Catalogue, which includes information on the number of species currently accepted, and an estimate of the number of undescribed species for the genera for which a recent taxonomic evaluation has been conducted. The number of accepted species is added to the estimate of undescribed species to provide an estimated total. Place cursor over headers marked [+] for further explanation of the column contents.
