The Fern Tree of Life (FTOL)

A webportal hosting the Fern Tree of Life and associated data

The Fern Tree of Life (FTOL) is a global phylogeny of extant fern species based on plastid DNA sequences.

For a complete description, see Nitta et al. (2022).

FTOL is an on-going project and will be regularly updated as new sequence data become available.
