again, no easy answers. IF some palms were more cold hardy than the ones we know now why did they not survive since the GENERAL climatic trend has been toward cooler temperatures which one might think would favor such things? we often just don't know enough of the plants or animals back then to make a lot of accurate deductions or statements about what "really" was going on at a given place at a given time..
