Glossopteris: In 1912, Alfred Lothar Wegener, a German meteorologist, polar scientist, and geophysicist first found the most boundless fossil proof originated from a plant known as Glossopteris. The Glossopteris were seed bearing trees, identified with present day plants and the biggest of their kind.The Glossopteris were a piece of the bigger Glossopteridales gathering of plants, however the real number of species is difficult to make out in light of the present fossil record. This is on account of the greater part of what we have about them comes as unattached leaves of various sizes.
The Franklin Tree: Named after Benjamin Franklin, it was first found by botanist John Bartram and his child William in 1765. He depicted it as a bush, developing somewhere in the range of 20 feet high, and being to some degree like the loblolly straight plant, however with bigger and more fragrant blooms. It has dim green leaves that turn red, orange, and pink in the fall, and structures some three-inch white blooms from pre-fall until ice initially shows up.
Sigillaria: Sigillaria tree is one you would most likely find peculiar today. It’s a tree that doesn’t repeat by means of seeds, similar to the present deciduous and coniferous trees do. It was a spore-bearing, tree-like plant that prospered in the late Carboniferous time frame. The tree’s fossils are discovered everywhere throughout the world in places like the United States, Canada, China, and Zimbabwe. It wound up wiped out around 300 million years prior.
Strychnos electri : In 1986, George Poinar, an entomologist at Oregon State University went on a field excursion to the Dominical Republic to recover around 500 fossils encased in golden that were found in a mine there. What’s more, in the accompanying 30 years, he examined the numerous creepy crawlies that made up that clump.
St Helena olive: The Saint Helena Olive stands separated from alternate trees on this rundown for one glaring reason – it went wiped out not a huge number of years back, but rather in 1994. The Saint Helena Olive (Nesiota elliptica) isn’t really an individual from the olive family. Or maybe, it is all the more firmly identified with the jujube tree.
Toromiro Tree: Easter Island is a standout amongst the most remote places on Earth, situated around 2,200 miles from South America and 1,300 miles from the Pitcairn Islands, which are the closest possessed islands. The Toromiro Tree, which is the island’s national tree, never again lives there. The last one was felled inside the Rano Kao volcanic cavity in 1965. It is a little bush tree estimating around 6 feet in tallness and is described by its curved trunk and vigorously fissured red bark. Harking back to the 1950s, a few seeds were gathered and the tree gets by in a few botanic gardens in Europe and Chile.
Araucarioxylon arizonicum: Araucarioxylon arizonicum is a types of conifer that went wiped out around 200 million years back. It’s the state fossil for the U.S. province of Arizona. Petrified renditions of the tree can be found all through the barren wilderness of Northern Arizona in a 378 square kilometer stop known as Petrified Forest National Park.
