origin of angiosperms Speculation on Pre-Cretaceous Angiosperms has been made by several authors, and many authors have hypothesized the possible mechanisms of the evolutionary change. Many of the purported pre-angiosperm ancestors have "angiosperm" leaf characters (net-like venation pattern) which has arisen independently in several clades.   About this book Palaeobiology: A Synthesis was widely acclaimed both for its content and production quality. Ten years on, Derek Briggs and Peter Crowther have once again brought together over leading authorities from around the world to produce Palaeobiology II.   The major diversification of flowering plants (angiosperms) in the Early Cretaceous, between about and 90 million years ago, initiated fundamental changes Cited by: Origin of the Angiosperm Flower Leo J.

Doyle.   The Swedish Museum of Natural History develops and disseminates knowledge and experiences about the build up and development of the universe and the earth, the plant and animal life of the earth together with human biology and the natural environment. The Museum is an authority under the Ministry of Culture.   A reappraisal of current theorie suggests that the origin of flowering plants was closely correlated with the spread of big, low-browsing dinosaurs.
