The discovery of the tallest trees in the world in a 4 million-year-old forest

Every day we hear about a new and strange discovery, despite the discoveries made by scientists and researchers, but there are many mysteries on the earth that we do not know anything about, and recently a number of fossil researchers revealed that the age of a forest on the island of Borneo on the borders between Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei is more than 4 million years.

An international research team led by Penn State University also found that the current landscape of the island is similar to what existed during the Pliocene era, 5.3 to 2.6 million years ago, according to the British newspaper "Express".

And not only that, he notes that in the past, researchers would limit their studies to fossilized pollen from Borneo, which is highly resistant to decomposition.

However, Dr. Welf noted that because pollen is often not well preserved, this data does not provide complete information on the landscapes of ancient plants in the Asian tropics.

As for the researchers, this study provided enough evidence to show that the current landscape and vegetation diversity are very similar to what existed during the Pliocene, 5.3 to 2.6 million years ago.
