Plants came to land 100 million yrs earlier than previously thought: Study
When life, in plant form, came from seas to barren lands, mountains and hills were rocky crags and lowland plains were dustbowls, and rates of erosion were more than ten times what they are nowadays. As plants further moved onto land, soils developed, and as geological times passed by, soils and plants more and more crept outwards from the seas and increasingly covered the land surface of our cosmic home, giving it familiar shades of green to its continents. But when plants first invaded the land?
