This new re-written edition of the best-selling NZ classic Which Native Fern? now includes comprehensive ecological information on the fern and its environment. As well as the known uses of each fern, from food and medicine, to perfume, making tools, mattresses and track-markers, it also explains how to grow each fern in your own garden. This new ecological edition also identifies the insect and bird life to look for in each fern and includes details on the origins of Maori names. Use Andrew Crowe's unique leaf key to confidently identify common New Zealand native ferns. Colour photographs of leaves and associated creatures, graphics giving fern shape and height, fern distribution maps and ID checklists listing distinguishing features are all helpful tools to identify New Zealand's native ferns.
