In a rainforest?
What are the adaptations of the Bird's Nest Fern?
The Bird`s Nest Fern, Asplenium nidus, an epiphytic fern has thick, leathery leaves minimizing water loss. It funnels water and debris into the spongy mass of roots. As a leaf dies, it curls inwards, trapping debris and a protective layer around its sponge. A bird’s Nest Fern may accumulate so much water and debris that it can weigh up to 100 kilograms
To cope with the low light intensity at the sub-canopy level, the fern has developed broad leaves to maximize light absorption. Where the canopy is more open, the fern develops a smaller leaf structure to reduce moistureloss on exposure to more sunlight.
