Examples of ferns in a Sentence

  1. Paul Barrett:

    Instead of just feeding on mushy ferns or low-growing horsetails, it means they might have been much more important in munching tough plants like conifers or cycads, which suggests they may have been feeding on quite different things, maybe living in different environments from time to time, and even potentially acting as vectors for moving seeds and fruits around for those different types of plants.

  2. David Greenwood:

    The discovery of charcoal together with a fern-filled stomach opens a window into the biology of this large herbivorous armoured dinosaur as it suggested Borealopelta was likely a keystone herbivore that shaped the landscape by its grazing, and that it also grazed on the ferns growing in open areas created by wildfires, that is so cool.

  3. Caleb Marshall Brown:

Today’s poinsettias will last well into January if watered properly and provided enough sunlight.

  5. Brad Jenkins:
