A new significant study reveals that the meteorite that killed dinosaurs 66 million years ago gave chance to deciduous plants to grow. Deciduous plants are plants that lose leaves sometime in a year. These plants survived the impact of the meteorite according to the researchers from the University of Arizona.
Deciduous plants was capable of surviving in an apocalyptic condition hence most plants today in our forests are deciduous plants. Evergreen glowering plants have been eradicated along with the dinosaurs although some evergreens flowering plants are around and dinosaurs are not.
