Ancient Sequoia

Both Croll and Lyell discuss the change in climate over time for a given locality. An example is the Sequoia which is now only found in California and Oregon on the west coast of the United States. The fossil species Sequoia langsdorfii is nearly indistinguishable from the modern species Sequoia sempervirens.

Some S. langsdorfii links are:

Fossil Record of the Redwoods - NPS

On the Change of the Obliquity - Croll

Elements of Geology - Lyell
