( Lepidodendron aculeatum )
This XfrogPlants Lepidodendron 3D model collection contains
highly detailed, fully textured variations of the plant at different ages.
Arboreal plant Period:
Carboniferous to early Permian Environment:
swamps and floodplain forests Climate:
warm and humid Notes:
Lepidodendron was a giant (45 m.) arborescent lycopod that formed (with Sigillaria and Calamites) the huge forests of the Carboniferous, which are, as fossil carbon, one of today’s main energy sources. The roots (stigmaria) of Lepidodendron, like those of Sigillaria, were “Y” shaped. The simple branches only grew in the upper part of the trunk. It is still disputed if it had cones or not: they have been found near, but never attached to the tree. We provide the choice of cones on all models. The whole trunk of Lepidodendron carries unmistakable diamond-shaped scars of fallen leaves.
