GOLDEN LEATHER FERN

Botany
The plant is a coarse fern growing to a height of 2 meters. Rootstocks are stout, woody and scaly. Stipes are clustered, stout and glabrous, 30 to 50 cm long. Fronds are leathery, pinnate, 50-200 cm long. Leaflets are 20 to 50 cm long, 4 to 6 cm wide. Fertile upper pinnae are smaller than the lower sterile ones.

Distribution
Abundant in open mud flats, in mangove swamps, and along tidal streams.

Parts utilized
Leaves, roots, rhizomes.

Properties and constituents
• Phytochemical studies have yielded beta-sitosterol, alkaloid, flavonoids, phenolics, catechins, saponins, tannins.

Uses
Folkloric
• Rhizomes are used for the healing of stubborn ulcers.
• Leaves used topically as emollient.
• In Malaya and Borneo, powdered or grated rhizomes applied as paste to wounds and boils.
• Fronds and roots are applied to syphilitic ulcers.
• In Fiji, used for sore throat, chest pains and elephantiasis, for constipation and as purgative; also, as febrifuge.
• In Bangladesh, leaves used for cloudy urination in women.

Studies
• Cytotoxic: Study of 16 listed Bangladeshi plants, screened against human gastric, colon, and breast cancer cell lines, Acrostichum aureus showed the most potent selective cytotoxicity.
Availability
Wild-crafted.

Description:
Acrostichum aureum, the golden leather fern, is a large understory fern that occurs in mangrove forests and other wetlands. Plants measure 4 – 6 feet in height and are as broad as they are tall. Fronds are usually arching around the edges of the plant, but tend to be more erect near the center. The thick, leathery leaves are compound and large, measuring over 3.3 feet in length, and 9 – 20 inches in width. There are 24 – 30 pairs of alternate leaflets (pinnae) that are non-overlapping, rounded at the tips, and measure 4- 13 inches in length X 0.5 – 2.8 inches in width. Leaves are shiny and typically dark green above, but paler on the leaf underside. Leaf margins are somewhat uneven and wavy in appearance. No sori are present on the leaf undersides as occurs in other ferns. Rather, reproductive leaves acquire a felt-like texture to them as spore-producing cells are distributed over the entire underleaf surface. Spore-producing cells are brick red to rust red in color, and release tny spores, measuring no larger tha 3/1000 of an inch in diameter.

Habitat:
Golden leather ferns occur Worldwide in mangrove swamps, salt marshes, low hammocks, and canal margins.

Similar Species:
A related species, the giant leather fern, Acrostichum danaefolium, is similar in appearance, but grows larger, with fronds generally 6.6 feet or more in length and leaflets set closer together. A more definitive characteristic is the location of reproductives leaves on the plant. In the golden leather fern, reproductive leaflets only occur on the outmost parts of fronds, perhaps the 5-7 top pairs of leaflets. In the giant lether fern, leaflets are reproductive throughout the frond.

Range:
Acrostichum aureum occurs in tropical and subtropical areas worldwide. In the continental United States, it is restricted to wetland areas in south and southwestern Florida. Not present in most IRL Counties. It is present but not common in Martin county.

Acrostichum aureum
Class Filicopsida, Family Pteridaceae

Pantropical. Locally, in various northern areas (including reclaimed sites). Rhizomes and base of the leaf stalks covered with scales up to 4 cm long; leaves pinnate, to about 4 m long, bright red when young; fertile leaflets at the tip are covered with red-brown sporangia, blades of sterile leaflets have a broadly rounded end terminated with a short tip.

On the landward side of mangrove swamps or non-mangrove seaside areas including reclaimed land; not as tolerant of flooding as Acrostichum speciosum.

Dried parchment-like fronds were used as roof thatching which are durable and less of a fire hazard. Pounded rhizomes are used to treat wounds and boils. Common.
