Glossopteris was a woody, seed-bearing tree existing in the rainforest areas, fossils of which have been found in Australia, some near Dungog New South Wales. The Glossopteridales arose in the Southern Hemisphere around 299 million years ago. Their distribution across many southern continents led to the initial proposal that the southern continents were once amalgamated. These trees were the dominant elements throughout the ears but disappeared in almost all places 251 million years ago. The glossopteris is representative of all trees that are in danger of extinction if we don’t take care of our environment.
