About this book

Language: Portuguese

An entertaining and informative look at why ferns and their relatives are unique among plants. Ferns live in habitats from the tropics to the polar latitudes, and unlike seed plants, which endow each seed with the resources to help their offspring, ferns reproduce by minute spores. There are floating ferns, ferns which climb or live on trees and ferns which are trees. There are poisonous ferns, iridescent ferns and resurrection ferns which survive desert heat and drought. The relationship of ferns and people are equally varied. Moran sheds light on Robinson Crusoe's ferns, the role of ferns in movies and how ferns get their names.

Summary in Portuguese:
História Natural das Samambaias traz uma visão divertida e informativa sobre aspectos que tornam as samambaias e seus parentes próximos únicos entre as plantas. Acompanhe Robbin Moran nessa jornada e aprenda sobre o ciclo de vida, classificação, ecologia e distribuição das samambaias. Leia sobre samambaias que flutuam, samambaias que sobem ou vivem em outras plantas, samambaias tão grandes quanto árvores, samambaias venenosas, samambaias iridiscentes e samambaias que são capazes de sobreviver ao calor e à seca do deserto. Moran nos escreve sobre fósseis de samambaias, sobre como as samambaias recebem seus nomes e sobre como elas influenciam nossas vidas. História Natural das Samambaias é o livro perfeito para qualquer pessoa interessada em história natural e um excelente recurso para estudantes de biologia, professores, ou qualquer um que queira apreciar as samambaias no seu habitat com maior conhecimento.
