Fern Identification Video
« on: June 20, 2023, 02:19:03 PM »
The video below provides a useful overview of British ferns. It is in essence a video presentation of the WildGuide publication of  Britain's Ferns, clubmosses, quillworts and horsetails by James Merryweather (Princeton University Press, 2020). I found the accompanying music a distraction so viewed the video in mute mode, however the information imparted and the images shown are, in my opinion, really good. What do you think?


The two further short updates cover issues of identification and are extremely helpful. There is an informative commentary by James Merryweather.

Part 1:


Part 2 is merely the second half of Part 1 concentrating on identification difficulties between various fern species::


And another video of a lecture delivered by James Merryweather based on his keys.

I've modified the original post and added three supplementary videos, again by James Merryweather.
