100-Million-Year-Old Amber The Oldest Plant Reproduction in History

It was observed that the plant, which was found in the 100-million-year-old amber, was the oldest plant breeding. It is stated that this oldest plant, which yielded 18 small flowers, remained from the Cretaceous period. In this way, the plant was able to produce new seeds and continue the generation. This endangered plant is thought to represent the changing face of the Earth during the Middle Cretaceous. Thus, in the world of biodiversity and nutrients increased while the beauty of flowers began to come. Angiosperm or reproduction method currently used by plants still in bloom. Research by scientists from Oregon State and Germany was published in the Journal of the Botanical Institute of Texas. The flowers in amber are still in perfect condition. Amber is stuck in when the remaining insects and flowers are standing for time. The flowing resin caused this sample to fossilize in a very long period of time. The blossom in the amber is the best example of what has now been found. The flowers are still too small because the plant has just started to bloom. In a microscopic photograph, pollen grains appear to enter the stigma of the flower. Thus, the fertilization of the egg takes place and the seeding begins. So the breeding is completed.
None of the flower fossils from the Cretaceous period showed that the pollen tube actually entered the stigma. Here is also the beauty of the amber fossils. As the resin penetrates the plant very quickly, all the structures can still be observed with a microscope, eç said Prof. Dr. Zell. George Poinar. As if the pollen stuck to the flowers on the resin face, it also brings to mind that it may have been carried by an insect. During the Cretaceous period, most of the plants were conifers, ferns, algae and exits. During the Cretaceous period, mammals and birds began to be seen, and of course flowering plants. But dinosaurs were still ruling the world. Değiş The evolution of plants has caused a major change in the world's biodiversity. Especially in tropical and subtropical climates. These small flowering plants have been able to successfully adapt to the life of different species of insects and other animals, causing the plants to evolve to this day. In fact, it is interesting that the previous reproduction of 100 million plants is still the same today. Aslında Is Poinar. These fossils were discovered in amber mines in Burma. This flower was named Micropetasos burmensis. The 16-million-year-old hitchhiker bow-tail, found in amber last year, attracted a lot of attention.
