a guide to the local ferns

Here are the links to pages describing each of the local ferns. Please note that these pages are not intended as a rigorous botanical description of each fern. That information is available elsewhere, for example Jones and Clemesha's excellent Australian Ferns and Fern Allies, or Duncan and Isaac's even better Ferns and Allied Plants of Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia . The descriptions here are aimed at giving the reader an idea of what the fern looks like and where it grows, with photographs to illustrate.

I will be documenting more species as I obtain suitable photographs. I will also be adding more information and images to the entries already here.

All photographs on these pages are by DN (except if noted otherwise). Camera: Minolta 9xi, 50mm f/2.8 macro, 100-300 APO zoom, 24mm f/2.8 Minolta AF lenses. Film: Fujicolor 800. Scanner: HP ScanJet 5p and HP Photosmart. Processing: Adobe Photoshop 4, 5, ImageReady and many other applications.
