Coning phenology of the cycad Macrozamia
riedlei (Zamiaceae) over a five-year interval.
Large seeds, extinct vectors and contemporary ecology: Testing dispersal in a locally distributed cycad, Macrozamia
and Lepidozamia are endemic to Australia, while Cycas species (spp.

Charcoal is also reported as being used in one of three methods of preparing Macrozamia
One example used to support this claim is the perceived existence of ceremonial feasting events held in the semi-arid and rugged sandstone gorge systems of central Queensland, attended by large groups of people for extended periods, and underwritten by large quantities of kernels from the cycad Macrozamia
moorei (Beaton 1977, 1982; see also Lourandos 1997).

although removal of Macrozamia
from the analysis restored congruence.
