Excerpt 20 - The End of Nature

Title: The End of Nature
Author: Bill McKibben
Page: 4

There are plants on this earth as old as civilization. Not species - individual plants. The General Sherman tree in California's Sequoia National Park may be a third as old, about four thousand years. Certain Antarctic lichens date back ten thousand years. A specific creosote plant in the southwestern desert was estimated recently to be 11,700 years of age.
