About this book

Language: English

Our present knowledge about angiosperms is based on the dogma that first appeared the family of Magnoliaceae than any other flowering plant. We do not usually take into consideration that the genesis of angiosperms could happen in a different way of evolution, maybe a more unexpected step. This study will attempt to explain the strange angiosperm-genesis with new theories based on surprising new findings. From the Devonian till the Triassic period – when Euramerica was located near the Equator – there was another continent in the Northern Hemisphere called Angara. On this landmass evolved at the same time a strange symbiosis between insects and flowers, made possible through a peculiar progress: nutrient-rich pollen dust, colourful flowers and sweet fruits on one side, sexuality and reproduction on the other. Isolated from the other landmasses, this community remained unique for millions of years. The knowledge we obtained from two world
fossil sites: Chekarda and Matvéevo, in the vast but lost landscapes of the Russian Urals, are due to the conservation of all the particularities and astounding perfection of plant and insect fossils.
