A detailed introduction to the ferns and fern allies.
Field Systematic Botany

(ferns and allies)
An Overview Features:
    1. spore (open release)
    2. gametophyte (free living-mostly exosporic)
    3. gamete-producing organs (Antheridia, Archegonia)
    4. gametes (sperm free-living, motile)
    5. embryo/sporophyte - dominant
The term "Pteridophyte" refers to vascular plants with independent gametophytes and motile sperm that are usually classified into 4 divisions that comprise nearly 40 families. They include over 9,000 living species (ca. 365 genera) distributed worldwide, with 893 species (124 genera, 76 hybrids and 176 infraspecific taxa) in North America north of Mexico (Kartesz, 1994). The divisions are also characterized, in part, by the nature of the sporangia:
    EUSPORANGIATE - a large sporangium developing from several initial cells producing many spores. LEPTOSPORANGIATE
Also relevant is the nature of spores produced: HOMOSPOROUS - all spores the same, producing bisexual gametophytes vs. HETEROSPOROUS - two types of spores that produce two types of gametophytes: MEGASPORES (develop to form the egg-producing gametophyte or megagameophyte ) vs.

Ficus carica

While the ancient history of the fig centers around the Mediterranean region, and it is most commonly cultivated in mild-temperate climates, it nevertheless has its place in tropical and subtropical horticulture. Botanically identified as Ficus carica L. (family Moraceae), it is unique in a genus embracing perhaps over 1,000 species, mostly giant "rubber trees", and mostly tropical. It is almost universally known simply as fig, common fig, or edible fig. The name is very similar in French ( figue ), German ( feige ), Italian and Portuguese ( figo ). In Spanish it is higo or brevo . Haitians give it the name, figue France , to distinguish it from the small, dried bananas called "figs". Plate V: FIG, Ficus carica Description Blastophaga grossorum ; the "Smyrna" fig, needing crosspollination by Caprifigs in order to develop normally; and the "San Pedro" fig which is intermediate, its first crop independent like the common fig, its second crop dependent on pollination. The skin of the fig is thin and tender, the fleshy wall is whitish, pale-yellow, or amber, or more or less pink, rose, red or purple; juicy and sweet when ripe, gummy with latex when unripe. Seeds may be large, medium, small or minute and range in number from 30 to 1,600 per fruit. Origin and Distribution The fig is believed to be indigenous to Western Asia and to have been distributed by man throughout the Mediterranean area. It has been cultivated for thousands of years, remnants of figs having been found in excavations of Neolithic sites traced to at least 5,000 B.C. As time went on, the fig-growing territory stretched from Afghanistan to southern Germany and the Canary Islands. Pliny was aware of 29 types. Figs were introduced into England some time between 1525 and 1548. It is not clear when the common fig entered China but by 1550 it was reliably reported to be in Chinese gardens. European types were taken to China, Japan, India, South Africa and Australia.

The 24 "Canoe Plants" of Ancient Hawaii
Interested in the plants of Hawaii? This site presents a general guide to the plants that were carried throughout the Hawaiian Islands by early Polynesian voyagers in their canoes. Some basic information is provided about each plant along with a sketch/picture when available. Also included are Medicinal Hawaiian Plants, though this area of the site takes a while to load. Very interesting!

The Department of Botany is now part of the Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology Department. The new website address is The Zoology and Genetics Department and the Botany Department have dissolved and reformed as Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology (EEOB) and Genetics, Development and Cell Biology (GDCB) . These two new departments will jointly offer an undergraduate major in Biology and plan to offer, along with the Department of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Molecular Biology , an interdepartmental, undergraduate major in Genetics. However, the undergraduate majors of Botany, Genetics and Zoology will continue to be offered as long as the present catalog (2003-2005) is in effect. This could mean as long as the summer of 2009. You would have until August 2009 to graduate in one of these three majors. Starting in the fall of 2005, ISU freshmen who might have been Botany or Zoology majors will instead be Biology majors. In addition to the interdepartmental Biology major, we will be offering an undergraduate interdepartmental genetics major.

resinous trees or rarely shrubs comprising about
Pinophyta (Gymnosperms: Pinophytina. The Pinaceae are resinous trees or rarely shrubs comprising about 9 genera and 225 species found mostly in temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. The leaves are spirally disposed and are linear and needlelike. The male or microsporangiate strobili are small, terminal, or more often clustered along the stem axis, and consist of many papery microsporophylls, each with two microsporangia on the lower surface. The pollen grains typically have two, bladderlike wings. The female cones or megasporangiate strobili are woody and often large, consisting of many ovuliferous scales, each with a pair of adaxial ovules and a more or less distinct subtending bract. Each "thumbnail" image below is linked to a larger photograph. Abies sp., fir. Cedrus atlantica , Atlantic cedar. This species has short lateral shoots with closely spiralled leaves. Both male and female cones are terminal on these short spurs. The female cone is on the left and the male cone is the brown and orange one on the right. Cedrus deodara , Note that 2 winged seeds separate from each ovuliferous scale. This genus is one of the exceptional ones for the family in that the cones disintegrate while remaining on the tree. Nearly all of the scales have already abscised from the axis of the cone.

98. OLIVE Fruit Facts
Brief botany, and notes on the cultivation of the tree, and the varieties available.
Olea europaea L.
Common Name: Olive. Related Species: Wild Olive ( Olea africana ), Oleaster ( O. europaea var. oleaster Distant Affinity: American Olive ( Osmanthus americana ), Fragrant Olive ( O. fragrans Origin: The olive is native to the Mediterranean region, tropical and central Asia and various parts of Africa. The olive has a history almost as long as that of Western civilization, it's development being one of civilized man's first accomplishments. At a site in Spain, carbon-dating has shown olive seed found there to be eight thousand years old. O. europaea may have been cultivated independently in two places, Crete and Syria. Archeological evidence suggest that olives were being grown in Crete as long ago as 2,500 B.C. From Crete and Syria olives spread to Greece, Rome and other parts of the Mediterranean area. Olives are also grown commercially in California, Australia and South Africa. There is some disagreement over when the trees first appeared in California. Some say they were introduced in 1769 when seeds brought from Mexico were planted. Others site the date 1785 when trees were brought in to make olive oil. Adaptation:
Growth Habits: The olive is an evergreen tree growing to 50 ft. in height with a spread of about 30 ft. The tree can be kept to about 20 ft. with regular pruning. The graceful, billowing appearance of the olive tree can be rather attractive. In an all-green garden its grayish foliage serves as an interesting accent. The attractive, gnarled branching pattern is also quite distinctive. Olives are long-lived with a life expectancy of 500 years. The trees are also tenacious, easily sprouting back even when chopped to the ground.
