Data show fast-growing, flowering plants 110 million years ago, spread quickly through river basins.

Science Daily reports on a new study by Dana Royer, assistant professor of earth and environmental sciences, that examined fossils of ancient flowering plants, also known as angiosperms, that provide clues to their growth patterns. Royer also discussed his study at length, which is published in the American Journal of Botany, in The Wesleyan Connection.
