Cathaya argyrophylla Chun et Kuang

Cathaya argyrophylla was widely distributed in the northern hemisphere of the Eurasian continent in the geological period of the Cenozoic tertiary. However, the earth covered with a large number of glaciers, almost across the whole Europe and North America at 2-3 million years ago, but the Eurasian continental ice forces is not strong, so some places with unique geographical environment has been to safe haven for certain biological. Cathaya argyrophylla , Metasequoia and Ginkgo have been preserved, becoming a witness of history. Cathaya argyrophylla was first discovered in China, it has caused great sensation in the world of plants. The number of Cathaya argyrophylla is very small when it was found at 1950s, Science 1979, another 10 places was found in Hunan, Sichuan and Guizhou about 1000 trees.

Metasequoia

Metasequoia is a rare living fossil plant in the world. In the Mesozoic Cretaceous, there has Metasequoia plant on earth widely distributed in the northern hemisphere. But it is almost extinct on earth after ice age. In Europe, North America, and East Asia, fossil of Metasequoia were found from the late Cretaceous to Miocene formations. In the 1940s, chinese botanists discovered the giant trees at Modaoxi the junction of Hubei and Sichuan. These trees has more than 400 years. After that, more Metasequoia was found in Lichuan of Hubei and Sichuan, Hunan. The total number is more than 5000. It has important significance for study in ancient plants, ancient climate, ancient geography and geology, phylogeny of gymnosperms.
