What is a fern?

"Fern" is a generic term used to describe a group of plants with common physical and biological features.

Ferns are seedless, vascular plants that have roots, stems and fronds. They repoduce by spores and do not produce flowers like angiosperms.

HOWEVER, most "ferns" belong to the plant Division: Pteridophyta, but that is as far as the taxonomy can be taken without more information.

Why isn't asparagus fern a true fern?

They aren't ferns at all!

Asparagus "ferns" are actually slightly woody evergreen plants that belong to the order Asparagales (genus Asparagus and Protoasparagus), and are often sold as ornamental plants, but are also considered an invasive weed in many parts of the United States and Australia.

They are native to South Africa and are called "asparagus ferns" because, from a distance, they do sort of look like ferns.

"Asparagus ferns" are mostly drought tolerant plants that have an extensive network of storage roots. The produce small white flower during the summer months, the fruits measure between 3 and 4mm in diameter and turn black on maturity.

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).
