Nephrolepis exaltata (Nephrolepidaceae), naturalized in Europe.
Most pteridophyte families (Blechnaceae, Nephrolepidaceae, Hymenophyllaceae, i.e.) occurs more frequently close to the ground, while upper strata are occupied by angiosperms and two pteridophyte families--Polypodiaceae and Lycopodiaceae; curiously in evolutionary terms one is among the most derived families (Polypodiaceae) and the other among the most basal (Lycopodiaceae).
