BIOL219 Summer Course Online Quiz #2

In case you haven't done  the first version of this online quiz, please do so by clicking HERE just for the fun of it. There are 10 questions for the previous version and 5 for this one. The only rule is you are not allowed to Google the given hints but you may refer to books or/and your friends. Good luck!

*************************







1. 1. It has bright green, upright fronds (up to 1m long) forming a crown shape. With age, this variety forms a short trunk and establishes an increasing colony around it. Long, dark brown fertile fronds stand upright in the centre of the crown.
This fern looks great when mass planted under trees and is best suited to dappled light – although will tolerate a sunny situation provided the soil is kept moist. New Zealand native fern. OMG so obvious lol

Five-finger, Pseudoponax arboreus

Crown Fern, Blechnum discolor

Heketara. Olearia rani

Wheki, Dicksonia squarrosa


2. 2. Juvenile plants creep over the ground before reaching a tree trunk and climbing upwards then developing larger sterile and fertile fronds

Crown Fern, Blechnum discolor

Wheki, Dicksonia squarrosa

Thread Fern, Blechnum filiforme

Heketara. Olearia rani



3. 3. the most common tree fern found in forests throughout New Zealand.
It is a medium sized tree fern and the fastest growing and will tolerate a wide range of conditions.
The fronds are harsh to touch and are dark green above and paler on the underside.
H 5m
Sun and semi-shade
Tolerates wet and dry conditions
Tolerates some wind exposure
Frost hardy. And Hamish did say that its unique feature is that it has skirts :P


Thread Fern, Blechnum filiforme

Five-finger, Pseudoponax arboreus

Crown Fern, Blechnum discolor

Wheki, Dicksonia squarrosa



4. 4. grows from sea level to 800 metres in forest, scrub, and on lake and river margins throughout the North Island and in Nelson and Marlborough. This species forms a shrub in the forest interior, but in the open can grow into a small tree up to eight metres high. Its pale green leathery leaves are toothed and woolly underneath, and its yellow-centred flowers grow in creamy masses in spring.


Heketara. Olearia rani

Five-finger, Pseudoponax arboreus

Thread Fern, Blechnum filiforme

Crown Fern, Blechnum discolor



5. 5. This is one of New Zealands most common native trees. It can be found from Cape Reinga to Bluff in lowland forests. Its particular form of a glossy, five or seven fingered leaf ,along with quick and luxuriant growth, gives a distinctly New Zealand character to any ornamental garden. It grows into a stout tree up to 8 metres high and grows well in most soils and situations. OMG, so obvious, again. And yeah, I think you can find this one near VUW old graveyard.

Wheki, Dicksonia squarrosa

Five-finger, Pseudoponax arboreus

Thread Fern, Blechnum filiforme

Crown Fern, Blechnum discolor
