      The fern-allies are relatives of the ferns. Like the ferns, they have the alternation of generations and they reproduce from spores. The fern allies differ mainly from ferns in that they do not have the same leaf structure. Whisk ferns are essentially leafless, the leaves of horsetails are reduced to scales and the club mosses display minute. Relationships. Another way of looking at this relationship is as follows. Several groups of plants were considered "fern allies": the clubmosses, spikemosses, and quillworts in the Lycopodiophyta, the whisk ferns in Psilotaceae, and the horsetails in the ionally, three discrete groups of plants had been considered ferns: the adders-tongues, moonworts, and grape-ferns.

Rather, this New England native plant is a shrub that reaches 2 to 4 feet in height. It is commonly found in sunny, dry areas; for example, abandoned sites with sandy soil. Crush the leaves of sweet fern sometime and you'll be rewarded by its strong, pleasing fragrance.

Royal fern (Osmunda regalis) is one of the types of ferns people use as planting mediums for popular flowers, such as orchids. This fern lives near the rivers and bogs with acidic soil, particularly in Asia, Europe, and Africa. Royal fern’s sterile fronds grow in flower-like spreads, which can reach 12 to 16 inches ( cm) broad.

Key Characteristics Horsetails and scouring-rushes are primitive, spindly-looking plants, often growing in moist places, which reproduce by spores aggregated into a spore cone at the top of the stem.

Ecology. Selaginella in New England are very small plants, and not very common. Isoetes or quillworts mostly grow at the bottom of ponds. Some can fix nitrogen. FERNS. Ferns were the first plants to have extended flat photosynthetic tissue we think of as leaves.

There are now ab species worldwide, but most are tropical. This revision of a book first published in takes into account new information about ferns, fern allies, their evolution, and changes in botanical names. Common names have not been abandoned, however, so longtime users can be assured of a degree of comfort with this guide.

Excellent drawings and color photos are liberally provided.On one level the possession of vascular tissue—xylem and phloem—separates the ferns and their allies from the bryophytes and the lack of seeds from the gymnosperms and angiosperms.
