Another interesting Pre-historic find

This one is of a species of palm (doesn't say if it was a trunking form or not) which apparently existed in Alberta in pre-historic times. The climate there was warmer, but only as warm "as Toronto" , they said. (Not sure how precise that estimation really is .. ). If they could figure out the cladistics/etc. maybe there are living species genetically related to this one?
