“When flowering plants took over the world: New insights into the changing structure of forests during the Cretaceous”

Dr. Dori Contreras discusses her research and how it fits into the broader picture of plant evolution. No prior fossil plant background needed as Dr. Contreras will provide a general introduction to paleobotany and the timeframe of plant evolution, with an emphasis on when and where flowering plants evolved and how they spread.
