A group of forest plants which reproduce by way of spores. Spores from the underside of a fern’s leaf are dispersed by the wind. In moist and shady locations the spores produce male and female gametes, which combine to produce a new fern. Some ferns are small such as the kiokio. Others such as the kaponga (tree fern) are large. The roots of some ferns were a staple food of the ancestors, containing a rich source of carbohydrates.
