IMG_3295

An organism is considered to have fronds when it has several large divided leaves. Fronds can be several leaves compounded together or a single leave that is divided into sections. Either way the leaves are attached to the stem of the plant. Fronds can have many different patterns that are not necessarily symmetrical and single colored. All of the sections can be arranged upon a linear or circular axis. The type of frond highly depends upon its environment and descent with modification. The fronds pictured above are arranged upon a central and linear axis.
