Present study deals with the diversity, distribution and conservation status of the genus Athyrium Roth in different climatic regimes of Gujarat state. Five species of Athyrium viz., A. hohenackerianum T. Moore, A. falcatum Bedd., A. micropterum Fraser-Jenk., A. parasnathense (C.B.Clarke) Ching ex Mehra & Bir and A. schimperi subsp. biserrulatum (Christ) Fraser-Jenk., were collected form the Gujarat state, of which A. hohenackerianum T. Moore is documented earlier. Therefore, occurrence of A…

Prothalli of Ceratopteris thalictroides
The prothalli of the amphibious fern Ceratopteris thalictroides Brongn are hermaphroditic and cordate and a comparison is made with those of the primitive Gymnogrammoid ferns, but no final conclusions can be drawn for want of adequate data.
A community‐derived classification for extant lycophytes and ferns
A modern, comprehensive classification for lycophytes and ferns, down to the genus level, utilizing a community‐based approach, that uses monophyly as the primary criterion for the recognition of taxa, but also aims to preserve existing taxa and circumscriptions that are both widely accepted and consistent with the understanding of pteridophyte phylogeny.
