Location: British Columbia, North America
Age: Middle Eocene (49 mya)
The Princeton Chert locality in British Columbia, western Canada, represents one of the most well preserved - and most diverse - Tertiary assemblages of permineralised flora in the world (Stockey, 2001). In recent years, the Princeton Chert has provided abundant information regarding Middle Eocene plants of all kinds, including angiosperms and many of their fungal parasites (Currah et al., 1998).
