The Montreal Botanic Garden has a large and well documented fern  
collection, mostly collected by their own botanists over many decades.

Hi  Holly

The University of Leiden Botanic Gardens (BG) in the  Netherlands
has a big living collection of tropical ferns from South East  Asia. They 
have
many species of Pyrrosia, Drynaria, Aglaomorpha,  Lecanopteris etc. I was 
there
recently and very impressed by the size and  quality of their living
collection.

Obviously in the UK there is  Kew, Glasgow BG, Edinburgh BG and
Oxford BG. (There used to be a fabulous  collection of tropical ferns at
Calderstones Park in Liverpool but the  glass houses were demolished by the
city council in the 80s when the garden  staff refused to go out on
strike during the winter months for fear of  letting the tropical plants
freeze. It was a scandal at the time... don't  get me started on the 
subject!)

Hope this  helps

Subject: [ferns] fern  collection
statistics/diversity

Dear Fernnet,

The University  of California Botanical
Garden at Berkeley has a diverse fern collection  (500 accessions, 340 taxa,
84% of wild origin with data, 59% with a  herbarium voucher).

We would like to
know how this compares to other  fern collections, especially within the 
United
States but also  worldwide.

Please share your perception of what are
significant fern  collections in public institutions.

Thanks in advance,
Holly  Forbes
