Ferns and Their Allies
(Friday 07/20/2012 - 09:00 AM - 04:00 PM)

This fern identification workshop will be held at the Kingman Farm on route 155 in Durham. It is intended to teach natural resource professionals the skills necessary to positively identify the ferns of northeastern New England. A combination of indoor and outdoor instruction will be used to teach participants about basic fern terminology, morphology, reproduction, hybridization, and ecology. These skills will then be employed to identify ferns in the field using a fern key. Highlights include strategies and suggestions for identification within some of the more difficult fern groups, and a thorough discussion of the challenges presented by fern hybridization. During the field portion of the course participants will see many of the most common local species of ferns discussed in the lecture, and gain experience keying in situ. Participants of all experience levels are encouraged to attend. The required text is: Fern Finder: A Guide to Native Ferns of Central and Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada by Hallowell & Hallowell. Students are asked to purchase this text themselves from their preferred bookseller and bring it with them to the workshop. (This is part of the Wetland Delineation Certificate Program, but you do not need to enroll in the program to take this workshop.)
