Te Papa’s next Science Live event on Friday 16 May is all about the secret world of ferns, so it seems only right to ask – what is a fern?
We want you to tell us (before we tell you). After all, everyone knows more or less what a fern is – right?! For New Zealanders, ferns are emblematic.
Tune into Science Live: Secret World of Ferns on 16 May.
Have a look at each of the images below. Which ones do you think are ferns?
And, once you’re done, check out our ‘Find ferns and win’ competition.
