Subject and Association Description

Ferns are an ancient family of plants, predating land animals and dinosaurs, with a fossil record dating back 360 million years. They grow only in moist areas, such as beneath forest canopies or along streams. Compared to Jung-Koch-Quentell's Common Spotted Fern (1920s) this wall chart lacks the systematic arrangement of figures according to the lifecycle, although the letters can guide the viewer from one structure to the other. Note the higher quality of coloring and detail. Perhaps more scientific than the earlier chart, the illustrations appear removed for the artistic expression.
