Do Ferns have fronds?
In this regard, what is a frond on a fern?
A frond is a large, divided leaf. In both common usage and botanical nomenclature, the leaves of ferns are referred to as fronds and some botanists restrict the term to this group. Like all leaves, fronds usually have a stalk connecting them to the main stem.
Secondly, do Ferns have compound leaves?
Fern leaves are either whole or variously divided. The leaf types are differentiated into rachis (axis of a compound leaf), pinnae (primary divisions), and pinnules (ultimate segments of a pinna). Fern leaves often have prominent epidermal hairs and large chaffy scales.
Ferns contain both roots and rhizoids. The sporophyte of ferns contain roots while the gametophyte contain rhizoids.
