About this book

This book covers the Pteridophyta - the ferns, horsetails and club-mosses. It gives an introduction to the reasons for the variety of ferns in Britain, as well as the history of their development, and their use by man. Taking each habitat in turn, it shows which species are most likely to be found and why, and the way in which they are adapted to their particular environment.
