However, mating system estimates from homosporous ferns indicate that polyploids are often highly setting relative to diploid races (Masuyama and Watano 1990; Watano and Masuyama 1991).
In most homosporous ferns, spore germination produces a primary rhizoid, followed by a germinal multicellular filament subsequent prothallial development based on the plane of cell division, and in the direction of the growth of the rhizoid and prothallial cell, this pattern of development was observed in A.
