Cycadophyta is the group of plants to wich the cycads belong. These seedbaring plants grow like palm trees and have leaves resembling ferns. They are, however, not closely related to either of these groups, but rather to the conifers. Cycads are found in (sub)tropical areas.

Cycads where particularly abundant during the Jurassic. These so-called living fossils have not changed a lot since then.
