Glossopteris is an extinct type of seed plant that flourished throughout the Permian Period. It was one of many species of related plants called Glossopteridales. Not much is known about these plants as a whole because of a lack of complete fossils, however the leaves are common and their fossils are widespread on the southern continents. They have been found in Australia, South America, Africa, India, and Antarctica. Glossopteris is an important fossil because it provided evidence to help prove plate techtonics and continental drift. During the Permian Period all of what are now the southern continents were conected in one huge landmass called Gondwana. Glossopteridales were the dominant plants forming massive forests covering Gondwana.
