Edith Taylor's Work Takes Her on Six-week, Bone-chilling Treks Through Antarctica, Where She Hunts Fossil Plants That Thrived on the Continent from 240 Million to 260 Million Years Ago. Lawrence, KS - infoZine- "At that time there were forests growing in Antarctica," said Taylor, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology and senior curator of paleobotany at the University of Kansas. It was also where many modern plant lineages that attract predatory insects made their earliest appearances, placing the Republic flora among the oldest in which modern plant-insect associations can be traced in the fossil record.

Paleobotanists use these fossils to help build a picture of prehistoric environments, the feeding resources of extinct animals and the evolutionary pasts of modern plants.

The fossil record shows that the different classes of plants emerged all of a sudden in the world, each with its own particular characteristics, and with no period of evolution behind it. Language: English Released: 2009. Botany is the area of biology concerned with the scientific study of all forms of plant life. Fossil pollen from Central and West Africa provide no definitive evidence for communities of rainforest trees at the beginning of the Cenozoic, says Jacobs, an expert in the paleobotany of Africa soon after dinosaurs had gone extinct.

One recent fall, Labandeira and Kirk Johnson, curator of paleontology at the Denver Museum of Natural History, headed out to Republic, joined by Wesley Wehr, affiliate curator of paleobotany at the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture in Seattle. Botany thus covers a huge range of plant species, from agricultural crops to delicate flowers to microscopic algae, Paleobotany involves the scientific recovery and study of plant fossil remains. Origin of the The impossibility of plant cells' having evolved from a bacterial cell has not prevented evolutionary biologists from producing speculative hypotheses. It was the start of the age of mammals, and Africa was largely an For a continent so important for its role in the evolution of mammals, the scarcity of plant fossil data stands in sharp contrast.
