A cycad is a seed plant with a woody trunck and a crown of stiff evergreen leaves. There are separate sexes in each palnt and their leaves are pinnate. This means there are leaflets arising from a common axis. Cycads are gymnosperms where their unfertilized seeds are open to the air to be directly fertilized by pollination. Examples of cycads are Sago Palm or King Sago Palm which has a palm-like appearance but is technically not a palm. These plants are usually found in equatorial regions.
