Annals of Botany: Plant Science Research's comment, July 30, 2012 8:07 AM
I wonder if the display makes any mention of Wales' own Ghost Forest, off the coast of Borth (central Wales, just north of Aberystwyth). This is about 5000 years old and was submerged by rising sea levels. It is astonishing when visible in the spring during low 'Spring tides' - http://www.ceredigioncoastpath.org.uk/submerged.html
