Fern Hunting in China

Posted on

There are 1500 species of fern in Yunnan Province, China – compared to just 50 in Britain.  Yvonne Golding of the British Pteridiological Society arranged a fern hunting trip to Yunnan last year, and in February 2011 gave a talk with slides about the hundreds of ferns they saw, what they ate and the people they met.
