ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the Dictyopteris (Arschoug) Hyot, the male gametophytic plants. It mentions that Dictyopteris (Arschoug) Hyot have not been reported till date from any part of the world due to their infrequent and scanty availability in nature. Its characteristics features as flat, ribbon-shaped, dichotomously branched thallus with midribs.

    The development of the gametophytes of Thelypteris patens (Swartz) Small and Thelypteris puberula (Baker) Morton var. puberula is described in this paper. In both species the laminar, bidimensional stage follows a brief filamentous stage, which has a few cells. The adult prothallia are reniform...

    Old World climbing fern (OWCF) is a highly invasive plant that is spreading rapidly and disrupting natural areas in Florida, with the potential to spread by wind-blown spores into Central and South America. Experiments were performed using gametophytes to determine the dose response of OWCF to...

    The spores of ferns and lycophytes may be deposited on the soil, and by various mechanisms, they can be moved down into and through the soil, although usually remaining in the superficial layers. They may persist in the soil for some time in a dormant state, and when brought back to the surface...
