An assessment of the status of alien ferns in South Africa

Emily Jones's picture

This study is my Masters project. The study should serve as a first screening of the status and invasive potential of alien ferns in South Africa. Globally ferns (Pteridophyta) are under-represented in the invasion biology literature, with studies focusing on specific species rather than Pteridophyta as a whole. Similarly no survey has been done in South Africa to determine the current status of alien ferns or their potential impact they may have on a system. I am aiming to create as large a data base as possible and appreciate any help in logging sightings of alien ferns across South Africa.

Kosyn

Nicky vB's picture

The purpose of this project is to help identify the species found along and in the vicinity of the track leading to the Kosyn, (also called De Groote Kosyn) a cleft (a narrow, deep, water-worn fissure through a more weathering resistant sandstone band) on the Palmietrivier. The area was burnt in mid-December 2016.

Observations of the Year in southern Africa

Tony Rebelo's picture

Every month southern African iSpotters nominate observations for Observation of the month, which becomes observations of the year.

This project collects the creme-de-la-creme of our southern African observations and displays it for those interested.

if you wish to use the pictures, please go to the observation and place a request with the users (add a comment).

Should the Silky Oak be a NEMBA Category 3 species?

Tony Rebelo's picture

We are assessing the invasive potential of the Silky Oak in South Africa.
In South Africa, trees of this species are used mostly as windbreaks and for agroforestry in farms and along roads and as a shade tree. They are also commonly used in parking lots and house yards as ornamentals.

The aim of this Masters project is to assess the invasiveness of G. robusta in South Africa by determining its distribution and rate of naturalization.

I need help identifying an indoor plant

Calli Morris's picture

My house mate bought me a couple of plants for Christmas. The guy at the nursery said they were all indoor plants that should not be in the sun.. I n the past few days they have started flopping over and looking like they are dying. Can someone assist me with what this plant needs.. ie sun or no sun / more water ir less water.. I am so sad that the little guys look like they are dying.
Thanks
