Caption: Specimen of fossilized wedge-shaped leaves of the tree, Ginkgo huttoni (Sternberg). Ginkgos formed a significant element of Jurassic period floras but today the group is represented by just one surviving species, Ginkgo biloba, the Maidenhair tree. Ginkgo bilboa may have only been saved from extinction by the attentions of gardeners in the Far East - it was first seen by a European in Japan in 1690. As the sole survivor of a once great race, G. biloba might well be described as a living fossil.
