Our present knowledge about angiosperms is based on the dogma that first appeared the
family of Magnoliaceae than any other flowering plant. We do not usually take into consideration
that the genesis of angiosperms could happen in a different way of evolution, maybe
a more unexpected step. This study will attempt to explain the strange angiosperm-genesis
with new theories based on surprising new findings. From the Devonian till the Triassic period
– when Euramerica was located near the Equator – we had another continent in the Northern
Hemisphere called Angara. On this landmass evolved at the same time a strange symbiosis
between insects and flowers, made possible through a peculiar progress: nutrient-rich pollen
dust, colourful flowers and sweet fruits on one side, sexuality and reproduction on the other.
Isolated from the other landmasses, this community remained unique for millions of years.
The knowledge we obtained from two world fossil sites: Chekarda and Matvéevo, in the vast
but lost landscapes of the Russian Urals, are due to the conservation of all the particularities
and perfection of plants and insects astoundingly. This study deals with the beginning and
propagation of all angiosperms in the Early Permian period from the deciduous trees, over
herbaceous flowers and grasses, and will give interpretations on why they could evolve in
isolation and why probably the worldwide climate change due to an immense catastrophe in
the Permo-Triassic boundary caused a quasi-extinction of the first angiosperms and retarded
their spreading all over the world for a long time.
