      INTRODUCTION. In Cope described Palaeophis littoralis, the first fossil snake named from North America. Since then 24 species pertaining to 13 genera have been described by various authorities, although Cope and Marsh were the principal contributors to our knowledge of the extinct Serpentes of this continent. The supercontinent of Pangea begins to breakup as North America separates from Eurasia and Africa. The Atlantic Ocean begins to form. Tectonic plate subduction along western North America causes the Earth's crust to fold and mountains form in the western part of the continent.

Paleobotany, also spelled as palaeobotany, is the branch of botany dealing with the recovery and identification of plant remains from geological contexts, and their use for the biological reconstruction of past environments (paleogeography), and the evolutionary history of plants, with a bearing upon the evolution of life in general.

A synonym is paleophytology. North America has one marsupial, the opossum. South America is home to many species of marsupial fossil record dates back to the Mid-Cretaceous of North America. Cretaceous marsupials of North America were numerous and diverse, but remained small.

Everything is illustrated by Pages:   The fossil record provides a window into the first "forests" of the Devonian Period, followed by the peculiar plants of the Lower Carboniferous.

These plants, in turn, were followed by those of the Upper Carboniferous, abundant vegetation that is responsible for almost half of the planet's coal seams. Africa, Asia, South America, and Antarctica share some patterns of primitive (fossil) plants and early reptiles, but do not have similar mammal populations.

This, therefore, suggests that the earlier plants and reptiles evolved while continents were joined, but mammals radiated into diverse groups after separation.V. thapsus is a dicotyledonous plant that produces a rosette of leaves in its first year of growth. The leaves are large, up to 50 cm long.

The second-year plants normally produce a single unbranched stem, usually 1–2 m tall. In the eastern part of its range in China, it is, however, only reported to grow up to m tall.
