Trees Nearly Went Extinct 250 Million Years Ago

    Lucky for trees that (in some species, anyway) their seeds can survive extremes and long periods of dormancy. I'd say they'd be hard enough to totally wipe out (naturally, obviously, not by human hand).

    Not enough respect given to the lowly life forms on this planet, both animal and plant life. I reckon long after us more developed species are dead and gone the world will be ruled by giant fungi eating cockroaches. ;)
