Side-By-Side Comparisons Fern Relatives Help Acknowledgments Bibliography

The creation of this web site would not have been possible without the help of the following people:

Laurel Carpenter, who got me off to a smooth start with this project, spent her time teaching me the basics of ferns in Sachar Woods, and let me photograph various ferns at her home.

Dan Perlman, who enthusiastically and magnificently taught the Field Biology course that led me to study ferns.

The staff at the ITRC at Brandeis University, including Deb Verhoff, Ellen Callahan, Chris Roppola, David Wedaman, and Todd Hartigan, and all the student members. You provided me with the fundamentals of the computer programs and answered all my questions in a most gracious and calm way.

Irit Feldman, who kindly lent me her car on numerous occassions so that I could capture the fern images.
