    Many species of ferns inhabit the lush, humid rain forests of South America, Central America, Hawaii and Malaysia. Tropical ferns are generally epiphytic but occasionally grow as thick ground cover. Epiphytic ferns -- or tree ferns -- grow on trunks of trees and receive nutrients from their hosts. Nearly all ferns .

They often dominate forest understories but also colonize open areas, invade waterways and survive in nutrient-poor wastelands and eroded pastures.

Introduction. The biogeography of ferns and lycophytes can be studied from several points of view and with various methods.

It might, for instance, examine the distribution of species on a single tree (Krömer and Kessler, ; Schuettpelz and Trapnell, ), or the frequency and abundance of species over large regions (Ruokolainen et al., ; Lwanga et al., ; Tuomisto et al., Useful Tropical Plants Database by Ken Fern, web interface by Ajna Fern with help from Richard Morris.

He is author of over 25 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, coauthor of two floristic books (LOLA, Argentina) and co-editor of the book Biodiversity and Conservation in Coffee Agroecosystems (INECOL and INE, Mexico).Price: $ I study ferns and lycophytes, mostly in the American tropics, and especially in Central America and the Andes.

I am interested in what the species of ferns and lycophytes are and where they occur—something often poorly known for tropical species—and the.

The eight American genera that do not occur in the tropics are treated in less detail. They are Camptosorus, Gymnocarpium, Matteuccia and Onoclea of North America, Arthropteris and Thyrsopteris of the Juan Fernandez Islands, Pleurosorus of southern South America, and the amphi­ tropical.

Profile My research over the past 40 years has centered on floristic studies in Mexico.

Such a thorough synthesis of the state-of-the-art knowledge on ferns and lycophytes is quite timely and has been long desired. Written for upper undergraduates, graduates and academic researchers, Biology and Evolution of Ferns and Lycophytes fills a major gap in biological, organism-level, evolutionary literature by providing a review of the biology and evolution of this important group of vascular land plants.

Ferns and the related lycophytes are among the oldest of land plants, with the earliest fossils dating from nearly million years ago. The evolution of an internal vascular system for transporting water, minerals, and food materials allowed ferns and lycophytes to evolve to larger sizes than the non-vascular plants around them.

A fern (Polypodiopsida or Polypodiophyta / ˌ p ɒ l i ˌ p ɒ d i ˈ ɒ f ɪ t ə,-oʊ f aɪ t ə /) is a member of a group of vascular plants (plants with xylem and phloem) that reproduce via spores and have neither seeds nor differ from mosses by being vascular, i.e., having specialized tissues that conduct water and nutrients and in having life cycles in which the sporophyte.

Tropical ferns are ferns that won’t survive our winters. The line between tropical and hardy varies from plant zone to plant zone.

If you are several zones south of us, some of the ferns we consider annuals or tropicals might be hardy in your area.

Moulatlet, G. Zuquim & H. Tuomisto: pg(s) ABSTRACT: The distributions of plant species are affected by characteristics of their environment, most importantly climate and soils. Depending on the type of species, ferns can live up to years. Although they’re found all over the globe, they’re usually found in four particular habitats such as moist, shady forests, crevices in rock faces that face away from the sun, acid wetlands, and tropical trees.

Our definition of monophyletic groups continues to improve (see Chapt 15, and 16), and, therefore, so does the accuracy of comparing levels of diversity within and among lineages.Ferns, Ferns, Everywhere! Ferns like tropical environments.

In fact, only 15% of the world’s species live in temperate areas. However, there are an estima species of fern across the globe, which leaves almost 2, species that occur elsewhere.Gametophyte ecology and demography of epiphytic and terrestrial tropical ferns.
