About us

Welcome to Ferns of Western Australia! This scratchpad (and its sister Gymnosperms of Western Australia) have been populated by second and third year students in the School of Natural Sciences, Edith Cowan University. Students create content as an assessment activity in the unit of study called SCB2423 Plant Diversity. The unit focuses on the evolutionary diversity of plants, their relationships to plant-like protists and to fungi, and has a distinct focus on the fantastically diverse flora of Western Australia.

Please note: All items and collations of external materials published on this site have been placed voluntarily by the students who produced the work. Students may elect to keep their work private, in accordance with assessment requirements. No information about marks or grades is available on this site.

Scratchpads developed and conceived by (alphabetical): Ed Baker, Katherine Bouton Alice Heaton Dimitris Koureas, Laurence Livermore, Dave Roberts, Simon Rycroft, Ben Scott, Vince Smith
