Imam Safir Alwan Nurza, Fitri Andriyani

Abstract: The fern is one of the plants that is easily found in Indonesia and it has a high diversity and distribution. Ferns are among the simplest vascular plants and are classified into sporous cormophytes which already have transport vessels. The purpose of this research was to identify and inventory the types of ferns found in Mount Gede Pangrango National Park. The research method used was descriptive with path tracking techniques and observations on the morphology of the found ferns. The research results obtained that 29 species of ferns were found in the observations made, namely Ophioglosum reticulatum L., Selaginella caudata (Desv.) Spring, Davallia denticulata (Burm.) Mett. & Kuhn, Adiantum capillus-veneris L., Asplenium adiantum-nigrum L., Dryopteris sparsa (Ham.) Kuntze, Angiopteris evecta (G.Forst.) Hoffm., Dipteris conjugata Reinw., Pleopeltis heterocarpa Bedd., Phegopteris connectilis (Michx .) Watt, Asplenium nidus L., Polystichum acultatum Roth, Tectaria crenata Cav., Pityrogramma calomelanos (L.) Link, Pteris biaurita L., Nephrolepis biserrata (Sw.) Schott, Microsorum scolopendria (Burm.fil.) Copel., Cyathea contaminans (Wall. Ex Hook.) Copel., Davallia pentaphyla Blume, Dicksonia blumei (Kunze) T. Moore, Davallia trichomanoides Blume, Ctenitis vilis (Kunze) Ching, Thelypteris rudis (Kunze) Proctor, Adiantum hispidulum Sw., Bolbitis quoyana (Gaud.) Ching, Selaginella ornata (Hook & Grev.) Spring, Drynaria pleuridioides Presl, Gleichenia linearis (Burm.) CBCl., and Psilotum nudum (L.) P. Beauv. This research concludes that each fern plant has its characteristics that can be used as a basis for observing and identifying the types of ferns and making an inventory.
