Submission + - Flowering Plants' Roots Pushed Back 100 M Years (frontiersin.org)

Rambo Tribble writes: Frontiers in Plant Science has published research which suggests that angiosperms' origins are a lot older than we have thought; 100 million years older, in fact: http://www.frontiersin.org/Journal/10.3389/fpls.2013.00344/abstract This puts the roots of these plants in the Triassic, not the Cretaceous, as previously thought. The BBC also covered the story with a little more eye candy: http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/24331982
