There is no such thing as a "brophophyll"; that's a piece of vandalism that sat in the Wikipedia "Fern" article for four years undetected. Also, since "phyll" means leaf, "sporophyll leaf" is redundant; "sporophyll" is usually sufficient.

Note from the Author or Editor:
On p. 275, please replace the bottom paragraph in the left column with the following: "Although mosses have leaf-like structures with chloroplasts, they are not true leaves. Ferns, conversely, possess two types of true (vascular) leaves, which are referred to collectively as megaphylls. Trophophylls are similar in appearance and structure to the leaves on seed plants, and perform the same function: using photosynthesis to produce and store saccharides. Sporophylls appear similar to trophophylls, and also engage in photosynthesis, but also produce spores. In that respect, they are functionally similar to the cone scales of gymnosperms and the pistils and stamens of angiosperms." On p. 276, please replace "Sori form on sporophyll or brophophyll leaves" with "Sori form on sporophylls"
