Two species of Fern have been named after Lady Gaga. Scientists say that they both have DNA sequences that begin “GAGA” and that they resemble the singer’s frequent costumes. “We wanted to name this genus for Lady Gaga because of her fervent defense of equality and individual expression”, says Professor Pryer, one of the scientists responsible for this naming. The ferns reproduce, like most, homosporously. They also are able to produce offspring that are genetically identical to the parent plant – through asexual reproduction and their high number of chromosomes.
