The macro-archaeobotanic remains from these regions include Acrocomia aculeata (Jacq.
sera, designating Acrocomia aculeata, a palm whose fruit is fed to cattle and occasionally consumed by humans in the Cabecar region.
Two medium-sized palms, Acrocomia
aculeata and Sabal rosei, always absent from the semiarid region, are reliable bioindicators of potential deciduous forests because they often inhabit burnt or disturbed places near human settlements.

The partially cleared areas still contained remnant patches of tropical dry forest dominated by Gliricidia sepium and Ervthrina fusca trees, the lower-statured Curatella americana, and palms belonging to the genera Roystonea and Acrocomia
The palm flora of the Venezuelan llanos includes several Large tall-stemmed Palms such as Acrocomia
aculeatea, Attalea butyracea, A.
More than 3000 specimens are fragments from cortical or husks covers from the fruits of an undetermined palm species; 10 seed fragments are palm fruits, perhaps of the genus Acrocomia
, typical of the tropical lowlands, which has several edible species.
Both conditions are frequent in tropical American palms, such as in Bactridinae, with Aiphanes being protandrous (Listabarth, 1992b), while Acrocomia
, Astrocaryum, Bactris and Desmoncus are protogynous (Scariot & Lleras, 1991; Listabarth, 1992b; Henderson et al.
The most commonly sold palm fruits in local markets are those of Bactris gasipaes, Mauritia flexuosa, Oenocarpus bataua, Euterpe oleracea, Euterpe precatoria, Astrocaryum aculeatum, Acrocomia
aculeata, Aiphanes horrida, and Bactris guineensis (Bernal, 1992; Mejia, 1992; Moussa & Kahn, 1997; Miranda et al.
was paraphyletic with Gastrococos crispa and Acrocomia
aculeata, forming a clade supported by 83% bootstrap and differing by only two base pair positions (Gunn, 2004; Fig.
The five best-represented palms at archaeological sites are Acrocomia
aculeata, Attalea butyracea, Bactris gasipaes, Elaeis oleifera, and Oenocarpus bataua.
