What evolutionists do not want you to know is that , something every breeder of animals or plants is aware of.
Whenever variation is pushed to extremes by selective breeding (to get the most milk from cows, sugar from beets, bristles on fruit flies, or any other characteristic), the line becomes sterile and dies out.
"Throughout the past century there has always existed a significant minority of first-rate biologists who have never been able to bring themselves to accept the validity of Darwinian claims.
In fact, the member of biologists who have expressed some degree of disillusionment is practically endless." —*Michael Denton, Evolution: A Theory in Crisis (1986), p.
Why do we not find them embedded in the crust of the earth?
Why is not all nature in confusion instead of being, as we see them, well defined species? Evolution is based on change from one species to another.
There is little doubt that Bayesian computational molecular-clock simulations by Beaulieu et al. Paleobiologists should not forget that lamid palynomorphs referable to Acanthaceae are known from sediments Triassic in age (Tripp and Mc Dade 2014). no other reason than flowering plants and holometabolous insects essentially have monopolized almost all of the terrestrial (and many freshwater) habitats during this interval ..." Crown Group Flowering Plants: This chapter reviews the scientific literature on the basic biology of extant basal angiosperms of the crown group, and summarizes the fossil record of ANA-grade basal flowering plants, ceratophyllaleans, and magnoliids, monocots, and eudicots (gunnerids and Pentapetalae including superrosids and superasterids).
The types of bird beaks, the colors of moths, leg sizes, etc. Each type and length of beak a finch can have is already in the gene pool and adaptive mechanisms of finches.
Creationists have always agreed that there is variation within species.
Evolution of stem- and crown-group flowering plants is discussed from molecular-systematic-, floral tool kit-, and paleobotanical research perspectives in this third of three essays on the origin of angiosperms. This statement by Wing and Boucher (page 380, 1998) is probably incorrect: "Despite the singular ecological significance and species diversity of angiosperms, they are not in a genealogical sense one of the major branches of land plants and did not originate with other major land plant clades (e.g. Some of the high points on floral evo-devo of eudicots with bearing on the greater question of the timing of the origin of floral organs are published in recent works by Hileman and Irish (2009), Korotkova et al. Additional permineralized fossil material of Sanmiguelia is probably needed to better understand the anatomy of reproduction and whole plant morphology. Uncanny similarities of early Mesozoic seed plant Sanmiguelia lewisii (Cornet 1986, 1989) with Paleozoic Vojnovskyales pointed out by Crane (1985) require confirmation by phylogenetic analysis of reproductive and vegetative characters gleaned from detailed anatomical studies of more fossilized remains to be collected. The Archaemagnoliidae is lumped with the Magnoliidae. Molecular-phylogenetic studies suggest that differentiation of flowering plants into a stem and crown group of the Mesozoic Era is feasible (Hilu et al.
I also bring back to life monocotyledonous elements of a ghost lineage of flowering plants traced from Norian sanmiguelias. Paleoecologies of these ancient stem-group angiosperm populations were not "dark and disturbed," or "wet and wild," or explainable by any other nonsensical and sophomorical pairing of adjectives. lycopsids, ferns, conifers, cycads, ginkgos) during the middle or late Paleozoic." Absence of paleobotanical data is not a substitute for fact when dealing with a probable ghost lineage due to insufficient sampling, especially in view of several molecular-phylogenetic studies estimating divergences of the flowering plant crown more than 220 MYA, which were events centered in the middle of the Triassic Period (Stephen A. Ovuliferous inflorescences first described as Axelrodia burgeri, polleniferous inflorescences named Synangispadixis tidwellii, flowers with ovuliferous units and polleniferous units, megasporophylls as carpels, synangia as anthers, bracts, and bitegmic ovules were described and discussed by Cornet (1986, 1989). This is an unstudied chronocline with potentially profound implications toward the idea of paraphyletic transitions in diverging seed plants at the base of the angiosperm stem(s) that straddle the PT. Triassic angiosperm fossils of detached "dicot-like" leaves described as Pannaulika triassica are known (Cornet 1993). Fossils of several other enigmatic flowering plants have been recovered from Mesozoic rocks but reproductive details and the morphology of whole plants are unclear due to problems with poor preservation and uncertain stratigraphic control (Müller 1981, G. There is a significant increase in the number of orders and genera of fossil flowering plants by the Aptian Age of the Gallic Epoch of the Cretaceous Period, based on data in Table 5.
