The Ferns of Florida

The Ferns of Florida

Gil Nelson

At least 163 kinds of ferns have been recorded in Florida. No other like-sized region of the continental U.S. can boast such an expanded assortment. Florida is without parallel in fern diversity and number. 

The Ferns of Florida catalogs and illustrates all of Florida's native and naturalized fern species. Clearly written detailed descriptions, along with helpful identification topics and a selection of botanical keys help readers identify plants in the wild. 

Rare and hard-to-find species such as some of our spleenworts and filmy ferns are included, as well as such common species as the cinnamon fern pictured on the front cover.
