Abstract

The paper reviews an attempt to establish wild populations of the cycadDioon edule Lindl. as a locally valued economic resource. Areas of wild habitat have been protected to act as a source of propagation material. The cycads are being grown as a village based industry to provide revenue to supplement traditional agriculture.
