• 14.5 Million Year-Old Fossil Plants

    From Inyo@21:1/5 to All on Mon Jun 27 16:53:51 2016
    Rather recently, I uploaded a series of photographs of fossil leaves,
    winged conifer seeds, and conifer needles from a roughly 14.5 million
    year-old locality in the middle Miocene Esmeralda Formation, Great Basin Desert, Nevada. It's from a page that pertains to the most diverse,
    complete, terrestrial (land-laid) Miocene paleo-biota in North
    America--and perhaps the world.
