Ginkgo biloba is one of the most famous and therefore intensively studied living fossils. The Ginkgoaceae was suggested to have originated in the early Permian approximately 280mya, and at the height of their worldwide radiation consisted of least 16 genera that were distributed in temperate forests. However, China's G. biloba is the only species of this genus which has survived until today. Using a phylogeographical approach we analyzed the history of this remnant from the past. G. biloba is… CONTINUE READING
