NLU Ferns

Ferns and lycophytes from the R. Dale Thomas Plant Collection at BRIT

Ferns and lycophytes abound in the R. Dale Thomas Plant Collection, originally housed at Northern Louisiana University (NLU) and now cared for at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT). Please help us share these treasures from Louisiana and beyond with the world by transcribing their labels–you just might encounter specimens from Dr. Thomas’ specialty group, the adder’s-tongue ferns (Ophioglossum).
