City park #botany! We often associate ferns with humid conditions but some, like this rustyback fern, are dessication tolerant & can survive extreme dehydration 🌿😎☀️
When they dry up, the curled leaves show only their scaly brown "rusty" underside and the plant seems dead.
Looking forward to this talk about global patterns of #fern diversity featuring work done by @westo_fernnerd @frondley_fern & @MichaelSundue https://twitter.com/Biogeography/status/1386764561555107841
