The palm family or Arecaceae are divided into 189 genera, structurally very diverse. All of the species grow in tropical or warm-temperate regions. Some palms are record setters for the plant world: Lodoicea maldivica (double coconut) has the largest seed, weighing up to 17 kg (37 lbs); Corypha umbraculifera has the largest inflorescence, reaching up to 8 m (26 ft) in length; and some Raphia species have enormous leaves which can reach 25 m (82 ft) in length. Many palms have edible fruits or are the source of widely consumed starches, oils and sugars. Others provide fibers or building materials such as thatch or canes such as rattan. Countless species are cultivated on a larger scale for their ornamental qualities.
