Equisetum

2011-11-11_15-29-35_345

I’m doing research for palaeontology comic at the moment. Since it’ll be set in the Late Devonian, I’m looking closely at extant models for the plants that were alive then. This one, Equisetum, is a vascular plant that reproduces by spores, I did a close-up here of a strobili, the spore-bearing reproductive structure.
