Some remarks on the glossopterids, and stratigraphical distribution of their fructifications during the Permian on Gondwana Supercontinent
Keywords:Gondwana Supercontinent, Glossopterids, Fructifications, Biostratigraphy
The paper summarises information available about different organs of the glossopterid group of plants. It has been found that various reconstructions proposed for the glossopterid plant and derivation of its phylogenetic relationships on the basis of cladistic analyses are yet to be validated. The relationship between the families Dictyopteridiumaceae and Eretmoniaceae is discussed. Distribution of various genera of glossopterid fructifications in the Permian of the Gondwana Supercontinent has been tabulated.
