Ferns date back over 350 million years to the very beginnings of plant life on Earth. They are known for expelling worms, aiding menstrual cramps and healing wounds. The fiddleheads are eaten as a food and giant tree ferns are used in some areas as building materials. Ferns can be found all over the world, not just in cool, moist environments.
