Image

A frond, simply put is a large leaf, with several divisions; otherwise a compound leaf. The structure involves, a petiole (Stipe for fronds), supporting the lamina (a flat blade). There are numerous, several types of fronds. The common distinction between many of these fronds are their blades. Some different ways a blade might be on a frond is undivided, compounded (pinnae), and deeply incised (pinnatifid). Furthermore, the frond will always be either arranged on a circular, or linear axis; and the blades may also be dissimilar in color, how symmetric it is and so on. Moreover, fronds are often associated with ferns, and palms (Like seen above). As can be seen, the frond is a unique structure to certain plants.
