The history of plant evolution comes to life in this introduction to paleobotany with Eric Fuselier.
Join Eric Fuselier as he brings the history of plant evolution to life with this introduction to paleobotany. Learn how plants have evolved on land since the first algae appeared over 750 million years ago. In addition to this presentation, participants will see real fossil specimens from the Eric’s private collection, showcasing many of the species and geological time periods discussed in this presentation.
