DescriptionFOSSIL POPLAR LEAF
Green River Formation, Wyoming
Many fossil leaves of the Green River Formation have been identified by comparing their shape and venation patterns to those of modern leaves. These fossils are immensely important to science because they help map out the ancient floral family tree. This fossil poplar leaf, with excellent detail and venation, is very similar to the leaves of modern poplar trees. The specimen measures 4 x 2 inches and sits on a limestone matrix that measures 8¾ x 9½ inches.
