Article Review by Karl

Article Review by Karl

The World of Ferns by Rupert Alchin.

This article is all  about ferns. It tells us about what  they are, where in a bush you find them, what is inside them. The scientific word for fern is Pteridophyte. The  fleshy underground stem of  a fern is called a Rhizome. There are 12,000 species of ferns worldwide. The xylem tissue carries water and the phloem tissue carries food for the plants that it is in. This article has amazing facts about ferns and I recommend that all students who do not know about ferns should read it.


  1. Hi Karl,
    What a lot of new words you have included in your article review. I hope you try using them, maybe when we go out for walks. It is great that you have been able to share your new knowledge.

  2. Did the book tell you which ones you can eat? What would they taste like?
    Remember you have that lovely photo of a fern taken down at Rotorua.
    Love Nana
