Flora Data (Last Modified On 10/16/2012)
Description Undershrubs or small trees of palm-like or fern-like habit. Stems underground to 10 m. or more in height, simple or rarely branched, disproportionately thick and fleshy, very rough with the persistent bases of fallen leaves. Leaves borne in a dense cluster at the crown of the stem, pinnately compound and usually massive. Staminate and ovulate strobili produced apically, both more or less woody and cone-like (except the ovulate in Cycas, which resembles a cluster of furry minia- ture leaves with marginal ovules toward the base); the microsporangia numerous, inferior; the ovules naked, usually paired, pendulous, somewhat drupe-like in fruit.
