    While studying some of the exclusive and threatened swamps overgrown with wild nutmeg trees (Myristica swamps), in the Kathalekan forest of Uttara Kannada in central Western Ghats, Cyathea nilgirensis Holttum, a southern Indian endemic tree fern was seen growing in the deep shade of the swampy forest.
