By high-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, the accumulation and the distribution of indolyl-3-acetic (IAA) and abscisic (ABA) acids in the organs of sporophyte of wild fern Polystichum aculeatum (L.) Roth are first studied. The maximum content of endogenous IAA with domination of the free form recorded in fronds and rhizome of ferns in the phase of intensive growth, while the active accumulation of endogenous ABA in rhizome happened during the formation of sori. During the autumn vegetation, the conjugated form of ABA was dominated in fronds, whereas the content of IAA in rhizome was decreased.
