V. Baranyi et al. (2017): Norian vegetation history and related environmental changes: New data from the Chinle Formation, Petrified Forest National Park (Arizona, SW USA). Abstract, GSA Bulletin. See also here (in PDF).
"... A palynological analysis of the Blue Mesa, Sonsela, and Petrified Forest Members of the Norian Chinle Formation has revealed four distinct palynofloras. The new data support the occurrence of a floral turnover in tandem with a faunal turnover between the Adamanian and Revueltian vertebrate biozones. ..."

! "... the evidence for a global “Paleophytic” vs. “Mesophytic” “vegetation” is simply unsubstantiated by the fossil record.
[...] The vegetational changes occurring in the late Paleozoic thus can be understood best when examined as spatial–temporal changes in biome-scale species pools responding to major global climate changes, locally and regionally manifested. ..."
