Wollemi pines

New article about the modern resurgence of the Wollemi Pines which the Dinosaurs (and some list members) were (are) no doubt fond (frond) of.

S. McLoughlin and V.Vajda: American Scientist, Nov-Dec 2005 The Magazine of Sigma XI, The Scientific Research Society, Vol. 93, No 6 pgs 540-547
Some relevant (to the list) comments regarding the K/T dino die off coinciding with a short term die back of Wollemia in New Zealand are in article. Some nice paleoclimate maps from the Cretaceous period too.

Relevant web link for those of you that are not Sigma XI members
