Antarctic Forest


Crop Version | Cover of Nature. V580, I7801. 2 April 2020: McKay, James

Fossils of cretaceous forest
found in Antarctic coastal core:
warrants artistic flair foremost
to model the data purest,
else evidence remains dormant;
roots in the core; pollen and spores.
In Antarctica before snow
rainforest moistened swamps below.


My hope is that the illustration will inspire people to find out more about our ancient climate and how it can teach us about the climate change we are going through today.
