Schippia concolor - genus of one species endemic to Belize

Schippia concolor - genus of one species endemic to Belize


I am specializing in palms native to Belize (now have 19 of 38).
Opportunistically, I also plant available palms for beauty.
My preference now is to plant palms which are either endangered
or those which have proven most useful in their habitats.   Some palms have over
360 described uses!  A few uses include such esoteric functions as serving as
replacements for whalebone in corsets and as fibers for making ropes to restrain wild elephants.
