Ferns & Allies of the North Woods : A Handy Field Reference to All 86 of Our Ferns and Allies
About this item
Ferns, horsetails and clubmosses are a surprisingly diverse group with a fascinating natural history. Some ferns are as tiny as golf tees, and others may tower to head height. Horsetail stems contain so much abrasive silica that they can be used to scour pots! Did you know that the spores from certain clubmosses are highly explosive and were used in creating flashes to light photos taken in the 1800s? This new addition to the North Woods Naturalist Series covers more than 100 species of ferns and friends native to Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. Range maps, habitats, nature notes and an easy to understand description for each species are paired with more than 250 color photos!
