Adiantum Bellum __LINK__

Bermuda's native and endemic flora has originated from plant material transported by wind, sea and birds from mainland USA and the West Indies. Consequently, around 80% of Bermuda's native terrestrial flora can also be found in southern Florida and in the West Indies islands. Many plants found on Bermuda are at the extreme limits of their geographic range with the most northerly mangroves (Rhizophora mangle) in the world thriving here. Bermuda also holds a sub-population of yellow wood (Zanthoxylum flavum), a species whose natural distribution is throughout the Caribbean and in Florida. Yellow wood has been classified as 'Vulnerable' by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species due to heavy exploitation for timber. The loss of the sub-population of this species on Bermuda would decrease the species extent of occurrence worldwide. When first discovered, forests dominated by the endemic Bermuda cedar (Juniperus bermudiana) and Bermuda palmetto (Sabal bermudana) and other native species such as the yellow wood (Zanthoxylum flavum) covered Bermuda's landmass. The understory was also dominated by endemics such as the Bermuda sedge (Carex bermudiana) and Bermuda maidenhair fern (Adiantum bellum). However, after colonisation by the English in 1612 the islands were quickly exploited, with endemic and native flora being decimated by habitat destruction and later through human introduction of exotic species.

Liczne gatunki z tego rodzaju uprawiane są jako rośliny ozdobne w szklarniach lub doniczkach[5], często w różnych odmianach. Jako rośliny lecznicze, w tym jako zioła poronne, wykorzystywane są adiantum etiopskie i adiantum klinowate. Syrop z adiantum właściwego (Sirop de Capillaire) wykorzystywany był jako panaceum na wszelkie choroby. Czarne ogonki liściowe adiantum stopowatego Indianie wykorzystywali przy wyplataniu koszyków. Niektóre gatunki są inwazyjne i występują jako chwasty w uprawach np. olejowca i herbaty[8]. 041b061a72
