Frond(2)

A frond, such as the palm frond ictured above, is a large divided leaf. This term is sometimes restricted to just those of ferns, however it can also be applied to the leaves of cycads and palms. The anatomy of a frond is very similar to that of an ordinary leaf, with only the structure varying slightly.
