InGen Database Description
The Cycads, including the families Cycadaceae, Stangeriaceae, and Zamiaceae, are plants that stretch back to the Triassic Period, known for their edible seed cones, which burst into color when mature.
Modern cycads are found in a diverse range of tropical and subtropical areas, from deserts to rainforests. A variety of cycad species are used in the production of sago, a starch. Sago is used for culinary purposes and in the production of textiles.
