Peculiarities of biomorphology of the Matteuccia struthiopteris (L.) Tod. sporophyte


Irina I. Gureyeva

Both data on biomorphology and anatomy of the sporophyte of homosporous fern Matteuccia struthiopteris (L.) Tod. are discussed. Sporophyte of M. struthiopteris is polycyclic perennial plant with monopodially rising orthotropic rosette rhizome bearing large fronds and lateral plagiotropic rhizomes (stolons) bearing cataphylls. Fronds are arranged as rosette, cataphylls are arranged spirally. Vascular system of both orthotropic and plagiotropic rhizomes is characterized. The drawings of the anatomical and morphological details of the sporophyte structure are given.
