List of palms of the Caribbean


List of palms of the Caribbean

[
Acrocomia aculeata"] The palm tree is often seen as symbolically important in the Caribbean, appearing on the coats of arms of several Caribbean nations [The Bahamas, Cuba, Dominica, Haiti and Trinidad and Tobago have palm trees in their coats of arms.] and on the flag of the West Indies cricket team. This list consists of palms which are native to the insular Caribbean (including the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos Islands). Morici (2004) reported that there are about 191 genera and 2339 species in the Arecaceae (the palm family).cite web |url=http://webpages.ull.es/users/jmferpal/Palmeras%20e%20Islas%20Libro%20Cap.%2003.pdf |title=Palmeras e Islas: La Insularidad en una de las Familias más Diversas del Reino Vegetal |accessdate=2006-12-13 |author= Morici, Carlo|authorlink=Carlo Morici |year=2004 |work=J.M. Fernández-Palacios & C. Morici, Ecología Insular/Island Ecology |publisher= Asociatión Española de Ecología Terestre (AEET)-Cabildo Insular de La Palma|pages=81-122 |language=es ] Their distribution is biased toward islands - 36% of genera and 52% of species are found only on islands, while 32% of genera and 6% of species are found only on continents. Sixty-two percent of monotypic genera are found only on islands.

Phytogeographically, the Caribbean region is often considered to include the coastal plains of the United States (including south Florida), Mexico (especially the Yucatan), Belize, Colombia and Venezuela.cite book |last=Henderson |first=Andrew |authorlink= Andrew Henderson (botanist)|coauthors=Gloria Galeano; Rodrigo Bernal|title=Field Guide to the Palms of the Americas |year=1995 |publisher=Princeton University Press |location=Princeton, New Jersey| isbn= 0-691-08537-4 ] Most species either have a wide distribution which includes part of the Caribbean, or are endemic to the Greater Antilles. Cuba has the most species of palms, followed by Hispaniola. The Windwards and Leewards have the fewest. The palm flora of Trinidad and Tobago consists primarily of species with a South American distribution. cite book | last = Comeau | first = Paul L. | coauthors = Yasmin S. Comeau; Winston Johnson | title = The Palm Book of Trinidad and Tobago | year = 2003 | publisher = International Palm Society | isbn = 0974087009 ] Four genera of palms are endemic to the Greater Antilles - "Calyptronoma", "Gastrococos", "Hemithrinax" and "Zombia". Although nearly ubiquitous in the region, the Coconut ("Cocos nucifera") is not native to the Caribbean.

Genera

"Acoelorrhaphe"

"Acoelorrhaphe" is a monotypic genus which is distributed around the margins of the Caribbean Sea, from Florida to San Andrés and Providencia, Colombian islands in the western Caribbean. The tree is a slender fan palm growing up to 7 metres (23 feet) tall, usually with many stems clustered together.

"Acrocomia"

"Acrocomia" is a genus of spiny palms found throughout the Neotropics, from Mexico to Argentina and throughout the Caribbean. Since it covers such a large range and is highly variable, as many as 40 species have been described in this genus. Most authors recognise only two species, "A. aculeata" and "A. hassleri", but others considers "A. media" to be distinct from "A. aculeata".cite journal | quotes = no | last = Acevedo-Rodríguez | first = Pedro | uthorlink = Pedro Acevedo-Rodríguez | coauthors = Mark T.

"Aiphanes"

"Aiphanes" is a genus of small to medium sized spiny palms. Caribbean species have solitary stems and are 3-18 m (10-59 feet) tall. Most of the 23 species of "Aiphanes" are found in the Andes; two species occur in the Caribbean, including "A. minima", which is endemic to the region. Although many sources ("e.g.", Henderson "et al." 1995) consider the name "A. aculeata" to have precedence over "A. horrida", in keeping with the nomenclature of the Kew checklist, the latter name is used.

"Astrocaryum"

"Astrocaryum" is a genus of spiny palms native to Mexico, Trinidad, Central and South America; the sharp, flattened spines that cover the trunk can be up to 30 cm (12 inches) long. The Caribbean species has solitary stems, 8-20 m (26-66 feet) tall. There are about 36 species in the genus. One of them, "A. aculeatum", occurs in the insular Caribbean, while four others are found in the wider Caribbean: "Astrocaryum alatum" on the Caribbean coast from Panama to Nicaragua, "A. confertum" on the Caribbean coast of Panama and Costa Rica, "A. mexicanum" along the Caribbean coast from Mexico to Nicaragua, and "A. standleyanum" on the Caribbean coast of Panama.

"Attalea"

"Attalea" is a large genus which includes some of the largest Neotropical palms. Three of the 67 species are present in the insular Caribbean, but two of these are restricted to Trinidad and Tobago which is on the continental shelf. The third species, "A. crassispantha", is endemic to southwest Haiti; due to its very small population size, it is classified as a critically endangered species [IUCN2006|assessors=Johnson, D. |year=1988 |id=38198 |title= Attalea crassispatha |downloaded=February 22, 2007 ] Three other species occur in the wider Caribbean: "Attalea allenii" along the Caribbean coast of Panama and Colombia, "A. cohune" on the Caribbean coast from Mexico to Nicaragua and "A. iguadummat" on the Caribbean coast of Panama.

"Bactris"

"Bactris" is a genus of palms which is found from southern Mexico to northern Paraguay. It is one of the largest and most diverse palm genera in the neotropics. Most species are medium-sized spiny palms with clustered stems. Most of the species present in the Caribbean are spiny trees 1-10 m (3-33 feet) tall with clustered stems and pinnate leaves; "B simplicifrons" is smaller (0.5-2 m) and often has simple leaves and no spines.

Seven of the 75 species in the genus "Bactris" occur in the insular Caribbean. Three species - "B. cubensis", "B. jamaicana" and "B. plumeriana" are Greater Antillean endemics, while the other four are South American species which extend north into Trinidad and Tobago. Salzman and Judd consider the three Greater Antillean species of "Bactris" to form a clade with "B. plumeriana" and "B. jamaicana" as sister species. [Salzman V.T. and W.S. Judd. 1995. A revision of the Greater Antillean species of Bactris (Bactridinae: Arecaceae). "Brittonia" 47 (4): 345-371.] Fifteen other species occur in the wider Caribbean: "Bactris barronis" on the Caribbean coast of Panama and Colombia, "B. caudata" on the Caribbean coast from Nicaragua to Panama, "B. charnleyae" on the Caribbean coast of Panama, "B. coloniata" on the Caribbean coast of Panama, "B. coloradonis" on the Caribbean coast from Costa Rica to Colombia, "B. gasipaes" on the Caribbean coast from Mexico to Venezuela, "B. glandulosa" on the Caribbean coast from Costa Rica, to Colombia, "B. gracilor" on the Caribbean coast from Nicaragua, to Panama, "B. grayumi" on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua and Costa Rica, "B. guineensis" on the Caribbean coast of Colombia and Venezuela, "B. hondurensis" along the Caribbean coast from Honduras to Colombia, "B. maraja" along the Caribbean coast from Costa Rica to Colombia, "B. mexicana" along the Caribbean coast from Belize to Nicaragua, "B. militaris" along the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica and "B. panamensis" along the Caribbean coast of Panama.

"Calyptronoma"

Palms in the genus "Calyptronoma" have pinnately compound leaves and large, solitary stems 4-15 m (13-49 feet) tall. The genus is endemic to the Greater Antilles, inhabiting wet areas near streams. "Calyptronoma" is closely related to the Central American genus "Calyptrogyne".
