Welcome to Palms of Africa

The Palms of Africa displays information of African palms such as taxonomy, photos and videos, as well as information on uses and trade. The website will gather this information via ongoing projects, thus it is a work in progress. Please also refer to the main palm website: palmweb.

The accepted names, species numbers and descriptions follow Stauffer et al. 2014 and Genera Palmarum

All photos can be used, but the scratchpad must be cited accordingly as main source with name of photo author (always indicated).
