GENUS INDEX

GENUS CODE: DRYOP
GENUS SCIENTIFIC: Dryopteris
GENUS AUTHORITY: Adans.
GENUS COMMON: Woodfern
GENUS SUMMARY: A genus of about 400 species, nearly cosmopolitan, but concentrated in temperate Asia. Sessa, Zimmer, & Givnish (2012) discuss the phylogeny and biogeography of Dryopteris; the clades shown in the key are from their work.
GENUS IDENTIFICATION: Identification notes: Dryopteris and Athyrium are often confused when not fertile; they can be easily distinguished by breaking off a leaf and counting vascular bundles (which will appear as thread-like strands). Dryopteris has 5 and Athyrium has 2. Many Dryopteris species will hybridize with one another to form sterile hybrids. Whenever two or more Dryopteris species are found growing together, there is a good chance that hybrids are present. Hybrids generally show intermediacy between the two parents, and have abortive sporangia or spores.

FAMILY INDEX

FAMILY CODE: DRYOPT
FAMILY SCIENTIFIC: Dryopteridaceae
FAMILY AUTHORITY: Ching 1965

WEAKLEY FLORA

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Dryopteris goldiana
COMMON NAME: Goldie's Wood-fern
SYNONYMY: [= Ar, C, F, FNA, Il, K, Pa, RAB, S, Tn, Va, W, WV; = D. goldiana ssp. goldiana - G]
PHENOLOGY: Jun-Sep.
HABITAT: Boulderfield forests, rich cove forests, seepage swamps, especially over calcareous sedimentary or mafic metamorphic or igneous rocks.
COMMENTS: NB west to s. ON and MN, south to nw. SC, n. GA, TN, KY, AR (Peck 2011), IL, and IA. This species is one of the diploid parent species of the e. North American reticulately-evolved Dryopteris complex. Its genome (symbolized GG) forms half of the genome of the tetraploid D. celsa, and one third of the hexaploid D. clintoniana.
