Bauer, Kathleen; Grauvogel-Stamm, Lea; Kustatscher, Evelyn and Krings, Michael (2013): Fossil ginkgophyte seedlings from the Triassic of France resemble modern Ginkgo biloba. In: BMC Evolutionary Biology 13:177 [PDF, 2MB]


Fossil evidence of ginkgophyte ontogeny is exceedingly rare. Early development in the extant Ginkgo biloba is characterized by a series of distinct ontogenetic stages. Fossils providing insights into the early ontogeny of ancient ginkgophytes may be significant in assessing the degree of relatedness between fossil ginkgophytes and G. biloba.
