We often talk about the age of dinosaurs, but I like to imagine an age of cyads.
Predating the angiosperms, the dinosaurs roamed around through forests of cycads and ferns.
Whenever I see cycads, it evokes thoughts of those times.
Despite some of the elaborate fertilization methods of angiosperms, cycads are differentiated into male and female sexes.
