The poster displays moss ferns (Selaginella) which are a plant genus that belongs to the Bärlapppflanzen (Lycopodiopsida). They are the only genus of the moss fern family, which includes about 700 species worldwide. They are usually small, herbaceous plants, which are characterized by their different types of spores. The distribution focus is the tropics, with relatively few species in the temperate zones.
The poster had first been used as a biology training aid. It is about 60 years old and displayed in a German school in Ladenburg, near Heidelberg. It was frequently but carefully handled, and shows a bit of ware (but not much) which is natural for its age and instructional service.
The rod on which the poster hangs is 37.5 inches, the poster poster itself measures 46 x 32.5 inches. The photos amply characterize the poster’s description and its excellent condition.
This poster is a great souvenir of Germany; one which is truly authentic and which had a real function in the nation’s education system.
