The origin of plants ( angiosperms)
The fossil discoveries of flowering plants (angiosperms) clearly deny the claims of plant evolution . These plants divide into 43 separate families, each one emerges suddenly, leaving no primitive "transitional form" in the fossil record.
Realised in the nineteenth century . Darwin described the origin of angiosperms as "an abominable mystery." All research carried out since Darwin's time has added to the amount of discomfort this mystery causes.
Evolutionary paleobotanist N. F. Hughes .
With few exceptions of detail, however, the failure to find a satisfactory explanation has persisted, and many botanists have concluded that the problem is not capable of solution, by use of fossil evidence.

The ancestral group that gave rise to angiosperms has not yet been identified in the fossil record, and no living angiosperm points to such an ancestral alliance.
