Bracken thrusting into life

Bracken is typically found in moorland environments and is commonly referred to as 'Moorland Scrub' in the north of England. It is also one of the oldest ferns, with fossil records over 55 million years old having been found. The plant sends up large, triangular fronds from a wide-creeping underground rootstock, and may form dense thickets.

The spores are contained in structures found on the underside of the leaf called sori. The linear pattern of these is different from other ferns which are circular and towards the centre.

Evolutionarily, bracken may be considered one of the most successful plants.
