Hence, the aim of this paper is to review the literature on African cycad
ecology with additional foci on the ethnobotany and conservation of the continent's cycads
Some analyses have been done on a wide range of cycad
species, for instance; Zamia pumila (Walters & Deckers-Walters, 1991), Macrozamia pauli-guilielmi complex (Sharma, Jones, Forster, & Young, 1998), the M.
aulacaspis scale infests not only ornamental cycads
but also native species (Emshousen et al.

She wrote, "I had the good fortune to see many butterflies in a frenzy to mate and some females were also laying eggs on [one of several potted] cycad
species are hypostomatic (Greguss 1968), but in a few species, and occasionally in some individuals of some species, it is possible to find amphistomatic leaflets; however, the stomatal density on the adaxial surface of the leaflet is usually much lower than that of the abaxial surface.
This paper, aims to better document the cycad
species utilised by Aboriginal people for the benefit of researchers in diverse disciplines.
BMAA was first isolated from cycad

rewrite Today's cycads
, once touted as survivors from dinosaur times, turn out to be mostly recent species, diversifying from an ancestor that flourished around 12 million years ago (SN Online: 10/21/11).

What looked like a palm to the untrained eye was actually a cycad

The first journey was to the Cape of Good Hope in the early 1770s, from where plant hunter Frances Masson brought back a cycad
