Jurassic Park was discovered in China
Sunday, 04 December 2011 10:41

This Jurassic Park is the only place on Earth, where can be viewed many ancient plant species, was found in the Sino-Tibetan mountains in China (see the map at the top of this article). The discovery were made by the Spanish biologist Jordi Lopez and scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in a place, called Tiger Leaping Gorge. As reported by scientists: "Our expedition found a large number of ancient relict plants in the Sino-Tibetan mountains, which nowhere else in the world do not occur and are a special type of flora. These plants appeared on Earth in the Cretaceous and Jurassic, and now they are truly living fossils". According to scientists, this phenomenon is explained by the fact, that many millions of years ago, on this area of the Northern Hemisphere was located a forest, which almost completely disappeared after the climate began to change, but in the Sino-Tibetan mountains was created an environment, that helped to keep the ancient climate and many ancient plants could not only survive, but for millions of years to evolve into a completely new species of plants, that are nowhere else on Earth do not occur. However, in Tiger Leaping Gorge in Sino-Tibetan mountains were discovered only by representatives of the ancient flora, but representatives of fauna of an ancient Jurassic – a Dinosaurs have not been able to find in these mountains, although the presence of ancient plants in this area can also theoretically prevent the presence of ancient animals. We note, that the region of the Sino-Tibetan mountains is only one region on Earth where are living a giant pandas. Tiger Leaping Gorge in Yunnan, China (see the map at the top of this article) is located just 60 kilometers of the nearest town of Lijiang. Tiger Leaping Gorge is located in an area where a mountain stream runs between the mountain range, forming a cascade of thresholds under the cliffs up to 2000 m. The Tiger Leaping Gorge is one of the deepest gorges in the world, officially for foreign tourists this area of China was open to the public only in 1993. Get to the Tiger Leaping Gorge is possible from two sides - or from the north, or from the south, one trail goes along the river and another trail goes along the left edge of the gorge.
