Cycads have been around for 250 million years, during which time they have retained seemingly unchanged features. The International Conference on Cycad Biology, held every three years since its inception in 1987, has become a prominent meeting centering on all aspects of the biology of this unusual and important group. This conference volume, the seventh in the series, includes 34 papers that represent the current state of knowledge about the evolution, pollination biology, ethnobotany, conservation status, and molecular biological aspects of the living cycads. Some of the articles are in Spanish, and all have Spanish and English abstracts.

Papers included in this volume are listed below. For a complete list of papers produced from cycad proceedings published by NYBG Press, click here.
