> so possibly if the plants in your area including the taxodium and the magnolia got fossilized and those fossils were discovered several million years from now scientists MIGHT think general conditions were somewhat milder than they actually were. certainly if my garden plants were fossilized the poor paleontologists might get a skewed idea of the current climate looking at the remains of my weird sheet for sure, LOL. <
Well, if that actually were to happen, the scientists of the far future would factor in things like human gardners growing out-of-zone plants and technically out-of-zone plants that perform well, but do not produce viable offspring on their own. Plus, I hope they would look at the voluminous weather data we've collected.
