Note: Palms are perennial woody plants, often of majestic
size. The trunk is usually erect and rarely branched,
and has a roughened exterior composed of the persistent
bases of the leaf stalks. The leaves are borne in a
terminal crown, and are supported on stout, sheathing,
often prickly, petioles. They are usually of great
size, and are either pinnately or palmately many-cleft.
There are about one thousand species known, nearly all
of them growing in tropical or semitropical regions.
The wood, petioles, leaves, sap, and fruit of many
species are invaluable in the arts and in domestic
economy. Among the best known are the date palm, the
cocoa palm, the fan palm, the oil palm, the wax palm,
the palmyra, and the various kinds called cabbage palm
and palmetto.
