Ferns

Ferns are plants that have stems, leaves, and roots like other vascular plants, but they do not produce flowers and seeds. Ferns reproduce by means of spores. Before the emergence of flowering plants, ferns dominated the land for millions of years. Nowadays, they are mostly valued for their attractive foliage.

What are the tightly coiled fern leaves or fronds?

The tightly coiled fern leaves are called fiddleheads because they look like the scroll at the end of the neck of a violin (aka fiddle).

They are an expensive delicacy and are available for a very short time in the Spring. Some varieties of fern may contain toxins, so it is recommended that they be cooked thoroughly before eating.

How do ferns and mosses reproduce?

Ferns and mosses have a wonderfully interesting way of reproducing.

  • They produce spores (haploid cells) carrying only 1 set of chromosomes.
  • These spores undergo mitosis to form multicellular haploid structures.
  • These structures have a distinct sex.
  • This is called the gametophyte generation.
  • These multicellular haploid structures then produce sperm and eggs. (via mitosis)
  • The sperm is carried in rain or water.
  • The sperm fertilizes an egg atop the female gametophyte.
  • A zygote is formed. (diploid) carrying 2 sets of chromosomes.
  • Mitosis now occurs to form a multicellular diploid organism still on top of the haploid female gametophyte.
  • This is now called the sporophyte generation.
  • A mature sporophyte will then produce spores via meiosis and release them to start the cycle again.

So it's not just a simple case of mature diploid male fertilizes mature diploid female.

I found a link for a pic that may make it even easier to understand.

Is fern a monocot or dicot?

  • The fern probably is a monocot.

actually its niether. the separation between mono and dicot is only relevant to flowering plants of which ferns are not members.

How do fern obtain food?

Ferns, like other plants, obtain 'food' through photosynthesis. Plants take in carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) and create glucose (C6H12O6) and oxygen (O2) through the use of sunlight. The glucose is then used by the plants as an energy source.

What are some differences between horsetails and ferns?

They are very similar in many ways (both show rhizomatous growth) Their main differences is that horsetails have highly reduced leaves (whereas ferns have large, well-developed fronds); horsetails show a unique type of growth where the stems are jointed; and ferns carry their spores on the back of their leaves in sori, whereas horsetails carry their spores in strobili, which are borne on the tip of stems.

What are the Parts of a fern?

A fern has three main parts of the body that are the fronds, rhizome, and the sporangia. On the fronds, the flat, green leaf blades are lamina and between the lamina and rhizome is the part of the stalk called the stipe.

What do ferns have instead of seeds?

They have spores. These are not an exact counterpart to seeds however, they are produced asexually (require no fertilization) as ferns have a 2 stage reproductive cycle.

The life cycle of fern?

Ferns are vascular plants differing from the more primitive lycophytes by having true leaves (megaphylls). They differ from seed plants (gymnosperms and angiosperms) in their mode of reproduction - lacking flowers and seeds. Like all other vascular plants, they have a life cycle referred to as alternation of generations, characterized by a diploid sporophytic and a haploid gametophytic phase. Unlike the gymnosperms and angiosperms, the ferns' gametophyte is a free-living organism. Life cycle of a typical fern: # A sporophyte (diploid) phase produces haploid spores by meiosis; # A spore grows by mitosis into a gametophyte, which typically consists of a photosynthetic prothallus # The gametophyte produces gametes (often both sperm and eggs on the same prothallus) by mitosis # A mobile, flagellate sperm fertilizes an egg that remains attached to the prothallus # The fertilized egg is now a diploid zygote and grows by mitosis into a sporophyte (the typical "fern" plant).

What adaptation enables ferns to grow well in environments with little light?

Because of their shape, fronds can collect a lot of light, so ferns are able to live on the dimly lit forest floor.
