Arecaceae (palm family) 

    The Arecaceae, also known as the Palmae family, is comprised of about 200 genera and 2,500 species.  Palms range from tiny understory plants to towering trees, and are found throughout the tropics and subtropics.  Some commercially important palms include coconut (Cocos nucifera), date (Phoenix dactylifera) and oil palm (Elaeis guineensis).
