Giving an exact figure is difficult, but some botonists report that there are around 2,600 currently known species of palms on Earth. All these species belong to the Arecaceae family, and are subdivided into roughly 202 genera. The habitat of these trees is mostly restricted to the tropical, subtropical, and warm temperate climates. Palms are mostly distinguished by their large, compound, evergreen leaves arranged at the top of an unbranched stem. However, there are quite a few exceptions, and many species display a huge diversity in physical characteristics. The following is a small list of some palm tree species in alphabetical order along with their taxonomic names.
