The fern is an ancient plant, going back to the time when both dinosaurs and the earth roared.
Making this model a perfect addition to any fantasy scene.
Ferns first appeared in the early-Carboniferous period. By the Triassic period, ferns related to several modern families could be seen.
The "great fern radiation" occurred in the late-Cretaceous, when many modern families of ferns first appeared.
Ferns have traditionally been grouped in the Class Filices, but modern classifications assign them their own division in the plant kingdom, called Pteridophyta.
A fern is any one of a group of about 20,000 species of plants classified in the phylum or division Pteridophyta, also known as Filicophyta.
Modern ferns are found across the world, making this model a great scene filler that will add that little extra touch for your countryside scenes.
The study of ferns is called pteridology; one who studies ferns is called a pteridologist.
