The display of the plants of the Lesvos Petrified Forest includes fascinating fossil remains of over 40 different species of conifers, angiosperms or pteridophytes. Among the exhibits there are petrified trunks, branches, twigs, impressive leaf imprints, fruits and parts of tree roots.
There are also large graphic depictions of the vegetation of the Petrified Forest 20 million years ago. Palms, cinnamon trees, many species of laurel, lime, beech, yew, oak, walnut, alder, blackberry, hornbeam, pines and protopinaceae, thuja, cypress, cunninghamia and giant sequoia are some of the species presented in this exhibition.
The Sequoia Diorama depicts the modern sequoia trees from California, the fossils of ancestral sequoias of the Lesvos Petrified Forest and modern sequoia trunks, so that visitors are transported back in time to the subtropic forest which covered Lesvos 20 million years ago.
