Summer Fern Forays in the Smokey Mountains

  • Subject: [ferns] Summer Fern Forays in the Smokey Mountains
  • From: Michael Barker barkerms@muohio.edu

As part of the All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory in the Great Smokey 
Mountains National Park, fern forays are held each summer to assist with 
inventorying all fern taxa in the park.  This summer we will have three 
such fern forays: May 31, June 21, and July 12.  These forays involve 
running transects on trails in the park, and collecting abundance data on 
ferns every 200 meters.  If you are interested in attending this year's 
forays, please contact either myself or Pat Cox (pcox@utk.edu).  If you are 
unfamiliar with ferns in the eastern US, this is a great way to 
learn.  Many of the volunteers who help us do not know the different fern 
taxa at the beginning of the day, but are fairly adept by the end.  Its a 
lot of fun and you can have the satisfaction of assisting in the first 
project to inventory all living organisms within a relatively large area, 
the Great Smokey Mountains.
