In a letter to his friend Joseph Hooker, Charles Darwin in 1879 famously referred to the origin of flowering plants
- the angiosperms - as an 'abominable mystery.
As a result, we believe that, prior to 122,000,000 to 124,000,000 years ago, several families of flowering plants
had already begun to diverge.

1) 20 million years ago This amber was produced by an extinct species of Hymenaea, a flowering plant
in the pea family.
Toward the end of the age of dinosaurs, about 100 million years ago, a new kind of plant--the flowering plant
[or angiosperm]--evolved that formed partnerships with insects and other pollinators.
An effort to decipher the Amborella genome- led by scientists at Penn State University, the University at Buffalo, the University of Florida, the University of Georgia, and the University of California-Riverside- is uncovering evidence for the evolutionary processes that paved the way for the amazing diversity of the more than 300,000 flowering plant
species we enjoy today.
We can know that because no leaves throughout the fossil record approach the vein densities seen in flowering plant
But the present study documents flowering plant
-like pollen that is 100 million years older, implying that flowering plants
may have originated in the Early Triassic (between 252 to 247 million years ago) or even earlier.
Accompanying the posters were "Think Big" themed promotional copy and a special offer to receive a giant light bulb desk lamp in the first mailing, or a large potted flowering plant

Visitors to this weekend's Camellia Festival at Descanso Gardens will share the company of more than 35,000 specimens of the flowering plant
Boyce and Lee are, nevertheless, working toward simulating the climatic impact of flowering plant
evolution in the prehistoric world.
GABA's new role came to light as Daphne Preuss, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator at the University of Chicago, and her colleagues studied a sterile mutant strain of the mustard weed Arabidopsis thaliana, a small flowering plant
that serves as a model of plant biology for many scientists.
