Chamaedorea

Chamaedorea is a genus of palm trees in the family Arecaceae. The name comes from the Greek words chamai (Χάμαι) meaning "on the ground" and dorea (δορά) meaning "gift". They are found in rainforests in southern Mexico, the West Indies, Central and South America. The best known species is the parlour palm (C. elegans), which is widely cultivated as a houseplant. Chamaedorea palms are small to medium-sized palms with slender trunks. Their leaves are pinnate or bi-pinnate, and they usually have small flowers borne in clusters. The fruit is a drupe. Some species of Chamaedorea are used as food plants by the larvae of Lepidoptera species including Batrachedra amydraula, Batrachedra chamaedorea and Batrachedra heptadactyla. The genus has a complex taxonomic history and has undergone numerous reclassifications. It is currently thought to comprise around 100 species, although some authorities continue to recognize a larger number of species. Chamaedorea is a genus of about 120 species of palms native to tropical regions of the Americas. Most species are found in Mexico, Central America, and northern South America, but a few extend into the United States (southern Florida and southern Texas), and Colombia. A few species are also naturalized in Italy, Sicily, southern Europe, Hawaii, the Canary Islands, and Réunion. The name "Chamaedorea" comes from the Greek words chamai (χαμαί, meaning "on the ground") and dorea (δωρεά, meaning "gift"), referring to the habit of some species of dropping their fruits on the ground, where they can be eaten by animals. Chamaedorea palms are small to medium-sized palms, rarely exceeding 10 m in height. They are dioecious, with male and female flowers borne on separate plants. The foliage is variable, with some species having leaves that are pinnate (feather-like), and others that are palmate (fan-like). The flowers are small and inconspicuous, with the fruit being the more noticeable part of the plant. The fruit of Chamaedorea palms is typically a drupe, with a single seed enclosed in a hard endocarp. The fruits are often brightly colored and are eaten by a variety of animals, including birds, bats, and rodents. Chamaedorea palms are grown in tropical regions around the world for their ornamental value. They are popular houseplants and are also used in landscaping. A number of species are threatened by habitat loss, and several are listed as endangered.
