Seedless vascular plant presentations: mosses, monilophytes, and lycophytes

Jade and Emerika lead first with their moss life cycle presentation in order to leave to attend youth rally and singing event

Darion and Clayson then covered cyanobacteria in detail, with Darion handling the presentation task.

Kimsky presented on the life cycle of lycopodium.

Kira and Harriet

Kira and Harriet covered the morphology of lycopodium including the strobili (cone), stem, and microphylls. Both spoke with Kira handling the bulk of the presenting task.

May-me solo presented the life cycle of selaginella. Her partner Lizleen has been absent for a number of days.

Pelida and Megan

Pelida and Megan both presented the life cycle of a fern with a gorgeous and colorful drawing.

The largest group, Jamie, Vincent, and Shane handled fern morphology. Starting with tree fern, katar in Pohnpeian, has a large clustered frond arrangement with fronds divided thrice. Second was Cyclosorus maemonensis, divided once, lobed. The third plant was Asplenium nidus, tehnlik (toahnlik) with an undivided frond and epiphytic habit. Sori develop in slots on the bottom of the frond. Can also grow on the ground, terrestrially. The fronds are undivided.

The fourth plant is rehdil, Nephrolepis spp., fronds are divided once. Alis en kewelik, Haploteris, elongata, also has an undivided frond.

Sixth is Dicranopteris linearis, mwedil en mal or dipw en mal. The frond is deeply lobed. Terrestrial only. Grows in dry, sunny places.

Jamie handled the above material, Shane continued with kidou, Microsorum scolopendria, which has lobed fronds. Last was tehnlikenwel. Undivided.

Sharisey presented Kosraen pronunciations. Done as a teaching lesson.

Sandralynn (Nett) and Shanaleen (Kitti and Sapwafik) handled Pohnpeian pronunciations of the plants.

Megan attempted to share the names of two ferns from Oneop in Chuuk, but I have doubts about the presence of Antrophyum recticulatum on Oneop. A. recticulatum is a mountain fern found in dense, wet, humid rain forest. I am also somewhat dubious about Huperzia phlegmaria, this is also a rain forest plant.

Kiyoe presented the names of a number of ferns in Japanese. She noted that Asplenium nidus is "tiger tail" in Japanese due to the striped sori on the botttom of the fronds resembling a striped tiger tail.
