Index to photographs of some Australian ferns and fern allies

The table gives access to a number of images of Australian ferns and fern allies from the files of the Australian National Plant Photograph Index of the Australian National Botanic Gardens. The images are provided at one resolution and are subject to a nubmer of copyright provisions.

The content of each column is reasonably obvious, but brief descriptions are provided at the base of the page.

Although derived from the photo database, the current page is static and is not dynamically updated. It will eventually be replaced with a direct gateway to the database.
