Biosystematic investigations on the lady fern(Athyrium filix-femina)


In EuropeAthyrium filix-femina has a constant chromosome number (2n = 80) and is sexual. The normal type of reproduction is intergametophytic crossing. In the gametophyte phase there is a hormone system which induces dark germination of spores and antheridium formation.
