Abstract Two polymorphic members of the Adiantum hispidulum Swartz complex, A. hispidulum sensu stricto and A. pubescens Schkuhr, have been critically studied on a morphological basis, utilising frond and hair forms, pinnule shape and size, soral features, number of sporangia per soms, sporangial size, annulus position and number of indurated cells, spore shape and size, rhizome and stipe paleae. Separation of the two taxa is traditionally based on frond form (A. hispidulum being described as… 

A consistent taxonomic treatment for dimorphic variation in New Zealand Adiantum species

It is concluded that glabrous and hairy variants should not be given taxonomic recognition, but should be considered dimorphisms within those species that are distinguished on the basis of other morphological characters.

Sporangium Exposure and Spore Release in the Peruvian Maidenhair Fern (Adiantum peruvianum, Pteridaceae)

This work investigated the different processes involved in spore liberation in the polypod fern Adiantum peruvianum (Pteridaceae), and found that the whole sporangium, or parts of it, together with contained spores break away from the false indusium and are shed as a whole.

Taxonomy and spore morphology of genus Adiantum (Vittarioideae; Pteridaceae) from Pakistan

Taxonomy and spore morphology of genus Adiantum (Vittarioideae; Pteridaceae) from Pakistan is illustrated with scanning electron microscopy images based upon the specimens examined in herbaria of

Rejection of Pteridium aquilinum subspecies atlanticum (C. N. Page)

It is proposed that there are currently no grounds to support recognition of this taxon, and environmental variables which may account for the appearance of certain bracken plants in line with the original description are suggested.

A Phylogenetic Investigation of the New Zealand  Pteridaceae Ferns

Results presented in this thesis confirm previously published phylogenetics of the Pteridaceae, which show the resolution of five major clades, i.e.,cryptogrammoids, ceratopteridoids, pteridoidoids, cheilanthoids, and the adiantoids.

Note on Adiantum hispidulum (Pteridaceae), a new record species to Fern Flora of Thailand.

Adiantum hispidulum Sw., a species of the widespread maidenhair fern, is officially reported for the first time from NE Thailand. We present a description of this newly recorded species and discuss

MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF MAIDENHAIR

A molecular phylogeny of Adiantum collected from Lesser Sunda Islands Indonesia to reveal its phylogenetic relationships was analyzed and tree topologies reconstructed by NJ and MP from specimens used in this study and other species downloaded from GenBank are congruent.

Adiantum hispidulum Swartz and A. pubescens Schkuhr (Adiantaceae: Filicales) in New Zealand

Two New Zealand members of the Adiantum hispidulum complex are regarded as distinct species which can be separated by differences in the indumentum on the lower surface of the lamina.

Tetralete and Trilete Spores in Adiantum Hispidulum (Adiantaceae) in New Zealand

The rare tetralete spores are associated with the occurrence of spore pentads and hexads (post meiosis), and have the same sculptural pattern (finely pitted) as the trilete spores but are smaller with laesurae being often less distinct.

The cytological findings are assembled in relation to the taxonomic system of Copeland (1947) which is discussed in a preliminary way together with the relevant portions of the alternative system of Holttum (19 1947).
