Fossils of First Plants Found



One of the categories I enjoy most in Crystalinks is Paleontology ... "let the fossil record show"... The 1995 Paleontology Index had 15 files which never stopped growing as if an unfolding story - discoveries made that predate recorded history - which some researchers hope will tell the destiny of humanity on this little rock in the sky we call planet Earth. True, my interests go more to creation and ancient astronauts seeding the human race - the word "Seeds" (DNA) always the key to life, but plants are also important.

Seeds also take us to Botany another evolutionary process on the planet, as we never stop evolving. It is thought that life has experienced here in cycles and may now be at the end of another cycle/age based on current Earth changes. The tectonic plates are collapsing, the planet is heating up, and the sun is waking up. To this end the Svalbard Global Seed Vault was created.


Tuesday I found another interesting article to add to my Paleontology files, this one about plant life. How far back do plants go? ... further and further it would seem.
