Know how deciduous plants got birth from dinosaur killing meteoroid.
It was the story of 66 million years ago, when a meteorite weigh about 10 kilometer wide hit the town. The rock destroyed into the Earth along with the massive bang force of about 100 TNT i.e. teratons, because of this explosion it leaves a huge crater which is near about 150 kilometers. According to the researchers community the dinosaurs were smear out by the subsequent mega-tsunamis, wildfires, volcanism, and earthquakes.
1 Meteoroid though killed the dinosaurs; it gave birth to deciduous plants.
The result of the meteorite clash shows its effect on destruction of the plants and forests. According to the researchers, the resultant situations privileged the continued existence of fast developing flora, along with deciduous plants, apparently, better prepared to counter to the apocalyptic situations.
2 Since the forests were full of plants and animals that time, they served as perfect hiding place for dinosaurs.
Most of the forests were consisted of the number of trees or plants which generally shed their leaves during a particular period of time. There was a time when the dinosaurs can easily move in the forest because during that period of time forests were full of plants and trees. Primeval relatives of holly, rhododendrons, ivy and sandalwood were all available while the dinosaurs nibble the forests, and different kinds of angiosperms prosper to the impact of the meteorites.
3 Research is going on to find out what changes took place with the deciduous plants million years ago.
According to the researchers numbers of fossilized leaves which originated from the varied collection of flowering land plants, generally eliminated the conifers as per the study of the varieties scope for the period of 1.4 million years. The scientists still want to know that why deciduous plants were so adapted to nullify the impact of the winter, which took the hit of the meteorite, and because of which slow growing plants were not able to move.
4 Studies were conducted and still going on to know the cause of the hit of meteorite.
The group of the researchers went out for the study that what is the main reason behind the hit of the meteorite. They also look for the best way to know the mass or density of each leaf in context with the area where it has found; after going through this research it has been assumed that the entire process is very expensive. The group also takes the measurement of vein of the leaves which indicated the quantity of the water which a particular plant needed to transpire.
After going through all these process them came to a conclusion that, the entire process doesn’t take few days; the process through which the plant obtain resources calculates how it can cause a major disturbance. And after reading this we also come to know that why modern forests are usually deciduous in spite of evergreen.
