A cut slab of a massive permineralized log of Araucarioxylon arizonicum (incertae cedis) is shown to the right. Reddish silicates are prevalent in these permineralizations.

Less colorful permineralized woods found in this region of the North American Triassic include Schilderia adamanica and Woodworthia arizonica, coniferous seed plants incertae cedis (Creber and Ash 2004, Ash 2005).

The image was captured by T. Scott Williams, Petrified Forest National Park Curator and Photographer. The picture is reproduced here with his written permission.

This sample reading list of journal articles was assembled by the author in 2009 while constructing the three gigantopteroid essays: I apologize for overlooking other journal articles of possible interest.
