About the Book: There are almost 200 species of NZ ferns that occur in all environments across the country. They most commonly form the undergrowth beneath a dense canopy of evergreen trees in moist, forested areas, but are also found growing on tree trunks and branches, along stream banks, and as tree ferns (in all forest types). Some hardy species have adapted to drier climates including coastal and alpine habitats. Collectively, they have a very ancient lineage dating back over 500 million years, well before the establishment of flowering plants.
