I would like to thank some specific people

who have encouraged my interest in ferns.



who introduced me to ferns, and to fossils of ferns,

and to most everything else important.

Paul Martin Brown:

who taught several fern classes and led a number of field trips

which constitute my most formal training in the subject.

Ray Abair

my co-teacher for 17 years

who kept my identifications accurate.
