A sazonalidade no padrao de fertilidade tem sido relacionada com o dimorfismo foliar de especies tropicais, como para Danaea wendlandii Rchb.
Sharpe JM (1993) Plant growth and demography of the neotropical herbaceous fern Danaea wendlandii (Marattiaceae) in a Costa Rican rain forest.
Regarding seasonal patterns, most of the species were evergreen, with three active species during the rainy season, Danaea elliptica, Pteridium arachnoideum and Salpichlaena volubilis, and only one poikilohydric species, Trichomanes pinnatum (Table 1).
Danaea elliptica, Thelypteris jamesonii, Diplazium plantaginifolium, and Hemidictyum marginatum are very demanding about shading and humidity, and are always associated with environments that are well preserved (Barros, 1997), being found in large abundance in the interior of the studied fragment.
The destruction of all but one of the four oval paintings (Primaticcio's Danaea on the middle panel of the south wall), one at each point of the lozenge, has rendered a more detailed reading of the programme impossible.
La familia Marattiaceae presenta estructuras esporogenas de dos tipos: soros en Angiopteris y Archangiopteris, y sinangios en Christensenia, Danaea y Marattia.
Los sinangios de Danaea y Marattia se originan de manera similar a partir del meristema del receptaculo, que se encuentra hundido en el caso de Danaea y sobreelevado en Marattia (Bierhorst 1971).
