Caption: New fern leaf. Macrophotograph of a coiled new leaf of the scaly male fern (Dryopteris pseudomas). Fern leaves start as tight knots, and unroll as they mature. The male scaly fern is a very common fern which is found throughout Britain in damp woods and on wasteland and scree. All ferns reproduce by means of spores, which are dispersed in this species between July and October. Damp conditions are required for the male and female cells, which are both produced in the spore, to meet and produce a new plant.
