Save the Oblong Fern

The oblong woodsia known as Woodsia ilvensis is the rarest fern in Britain and in danger of extinction. Over collected by the Victorians in the nineteenth century and affected by climate change, this beautiful plant can now be found in only three sites across Scotland.  Luckliy, the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh is researching the genetic diversity of the fern with a hope to better understand and conserve the species.
