One water lily, a species of Euryale, is now extinct in Europe and survives only in eastern Asia. All the other species belong to genera that survive in the region, for example, Ceratophyllum, Najas, Sagittaria, Trapa, Carex, and Polygonum; Szafer assigned 16 of these fossils to living northern European species.

This website is dedicated primarily to the giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum), which is also known as the sierra redwood. Our experimentation and observations of the giant sequoias in the wild as well as in the nursery and landscape garden for nearly 30 years has helped to dispel myths with regard to the giant sequoia species.

During the Miocene, Giant Sequoia was rather widespread throughout the ancestral Great Basin region of Nevada, occurring at a number of famous Middle Miocene (roughly 16 to 11 million years old).

Sequoias only grow on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada, a mountain range which runs miles through Nevada and California.

Giant sequoias can reach feet. Giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum[Lindl.] Buchholz) is endemic to the western slope of the Sierra Nevada range in Central California. It occurs in about 75 groves stretching in a narrow belt (not more than 24 km wide and about km long) from the American River in Placer County (Placer Grove) to southern Tulare County (Deer Creek Grove).

Fossil azaleas of Pliocene age (pre-Sierra Nevada time) were found in the Chalk Hills flora of western Nevada (Axelrod ). These azaleas were associated with Sequoiadendron and other montane taxa that the western azalea is associated with in the Sierra today.

It occurs in about 75 groves stretching in a narrow belt (not more than 24 km wide and about km long) from the American River in Placer County (Placer Grove) to southern Tulare County (Deer Creek Grove). The Sierra Nevada (/ s i ˌ ɛr ə n ɪ ˈ v æ d ə,-ˈ v ɑː d ə /) is a mountain range in the Western United States, between the Central Valley of California and the Great vast majority of the range lies in the state of California, although the Carson Range spur lies primarily in Sierra Nevada is part of the American Cordillera, an almost continuous chain of mountain.

Twenty-one Mio-Pliocene floras distributed from sea level in west-central California, across the Sierra Nevada and into western Nevada, are preserved in volcanic sediments occurring either (1) at or near the base of the andesitic Mehrten formation and its correlatives east and west of the Sierra Nevada, or (2) in the underlying rhyolitic Valley Springs formation and its close equivalents in.

The fossil plants prove conclusively that some million years ago the ancestral Fallon, Nevada, district held a vast oak-juniper woodland that bordered a rich mixed-conifer forest, similar to modern plant associations found along the western slopes of the southern Sierra Nevada in California.

During the Pliocene epoch (approx. 5 mya) the southern temperate forest region of Chile and adjacent Argentina became isolated from the rest of South America by the Andes and arid zones to the.
