I have created a table with characters typical for pteridophytes. This table can be used as a starting point to identify ferns you find in the field. It can be combined with the ditochomous keys I am adding on each genus page.
For each section in the roll-out menu below tick the spot-character which applies to your unknown plant. Click submit at the bottom of the list when you have marked all characters. A list of taxa possessing all those characters will be shown.
Please note that this section of the site is still under construction: so far characters for Adiantum, Antrophyum and Coniogramme have been added!!
