Abstract: 

Cycads were a dominant part of the earthÂ’s flora during the age of the dinosaurs and many species were common even in more recent times. However, many of the 297 species and sub-species dealt with in this Action Plan are threatened by habitat destruction and plant collecting, and more than half the known species are now classified as threatened. This publication is meant to be a working document, and provides an overview of all the cycads and the threats to their survival, as well as a set of objectives and actions to reduce these threats.
