Caption

Leaf of the fossil plant Glossopteris, a typical genus of the Permian & Triassic period, 270-190 million years ago. The plant was a tree form reaching 6 metres (20ft) high with a stem of 40cm (16 inches) in diameter. The leaves are the most common part to have survived in fossil form. They are elongated, narrow & tapering at both ends. The distribution of Glossopteris today includes India, Australia, South Africa, South America & Antarctica. This land surface corresponds to the single southern supercontinent Gondwanaland, where, during the late Paleozoic, Glosspopteris, was very common.
