Bering Land Bridge Vegetation

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Article in Nature shows that bluegrass, rye, sage, buttercup, mustard, poppy, and chickweed dated at 16,000 – 24.000 years ago were abundant in the eastern part of the Bering Land Bridge. Such plants would have sustained large herds of mammals which in turn would have supported the biblically described migration of humans from Mesopotamia to the whole of the world including the Americas.
