Incredible, but true is the fact, that the evolutionary development of Ginkgo can be traced, although sometimes without the consensus of scientists but primarily due to a lack of evidence, in staggering 300 million years. So nearly 10% of the total age of our planet today, which is estimated at slightly more than 4 billion years. This can not be said for any other living plant species.
Various climate change, natural disasters and many other things from the past have lead to the fact only one species of plants managed to survive and it is Ginkgo biloba, which had through overall period of its existence a whole lot of further and closest relatives and almost envious number of members of which most them are extinct.
Therefore, in this part we will attempt to form a clearer view in that part of the history of Ginkgo's ancestors and relatives, which is based solely on fossilized remains and today, scattered almost all over the World.
Ginkgo's ancestors lived in the period before the famous extinct animal species, such as dinosaurs. They lived in community with them, and they live after a dinosaurs as well.
