Abstract:

The palms are a very diverse group, which mostly distributed in tropical forest, they are large ecological amplitude that extends from temperate environments to deserts and from sea level to high altitudes. The anatomy of the fossil axis shows the anomalous types of secondary growth and critical observations suggest that it belongs to the tribe Dracaeneae of the family Dracaena as well as to some extent Cordyline. The characterized by fossil palm wood is highly indicated the much high rainfall and a moist climates in contrast to the desert and scrub forest. The detailed anatomical study revealed with affinities of the extant genus of Cordyline taxa comes under the family Arecaceae. Its geographical range is also distinct, limited by tropical climatic conditions.
