Hurricane Andrew (24 August 1992) blew down many large and rare palm trees at Fairchild Tropical Garden, Miami, Florida. This disaster offered a unique opportunity to collect and study the apical buds of these massive monocotyledons as wells as the root and branch wood of a wide range of tropical dicotyledons.
