  1. family polypodiaceae

    The Polypodiaceae, or the Polypody family, is a family of polypod ferns that includes about 60 genera and around 1000 species with a cosmopolitan distribution. These ferns usually have creeping rhizomes and subdivided, pinnate to pinnatifid fronds (leaves). They are mostly terrestrial or epiphytic, meaning they grow on other plants. This family is unique as it also contains some of the only known examples of epiphytic ferns that are capable of growing as independent plants, completely removed from any contact with the ground.
