FernA fern is any one or more of a group of about12,000 species of plants belonging to the botanicalgroup. Ferns first appear in the fossil record 360 millionyears ago, but many of the current families and speciesdid not appear until roughly 145 million years ago.Ferns are not of major economic importance, but someare grown or gathered for food, as ornamentalplants, for remediating contaminated soils, and havebeen the subject of research for their ability to removesome chemical pollutants from the air. Some aresignificant weeds. They also play a role inmythology, medicine, and art.
HabitatSome fern are adapted to a dry habitat but most prefer the shady moistconditions of woodlands. They are particularly abundant in tropicalrainforests and in the modern world there are still thousands of differentspecies of this ancient and very successful group.
