EVERYPlant Common Cordaites 07 --15 Models-- 3D model
Name: Common Cordaites
Scientific: Cordaites principalis
This Variation: 7 of 12
Habitat: Extinct plant from the late Carboniferous to the Permian Period (about 323 to 299 million years ago). Fossil specimens have been found in both drier hintrtland regions as well as floodplains and swampy ground. It was more common in brackish, swamp areas, but it is notable for being able to colonise drier regions, a feature absent from many plants of this era.
Range: Fossils have been found in mainly in Europe and Asia, but a more extensive range is evident.
Notes: This seed plant had leathery, strap-shaped leaves and is thought to be closely related to conifers; at one time it was thought to be the ancestor of modern conifers, but that is no longer considered the case. The species was made up of trees and shrublike plants that occurred in various habitats that ranged from mangrovelike environments to dry hinterlands; however, most grew on floodplains or in swamps. Those that grew in swampy areas had a more extended stilt-root system then those that grew in drier areas. Cordaites was an important part of the upland forests of the paleocontinent called Laurussia, or Euramerica.

Re-meshing available upon request, eg adaptive mesh for lower poly count (this is the default setting and is as supplied), uniform mesh for easier editing, strict quads, tris, mixed, poly increase or decrease, etc. No charge to existing customers of the product.
Many other modifications to models also available upon request. No charge to existing customers of the product.
The textures included in this pack are mainly 4k (4096x4096) to cater for detailed renders, this is the default map size and is included in each of the file format download files, no need for seperate downloads. However these may be slow to load or render on some system and may not be necessary in all situations. To allow for this, medium 2k, small 1k, and tiny <1k textures are also available and may be downloaded alongside the various model formats. Different texture sizes can simply be swapped in or out by copying the Maps sub-folder; no need to manipulate the materials in your editor. Please use whichever best suits your system and needs.
EVERYPlant has a mission ... which is to model every plant species in the world (plus some extinct, fantasy and sci-fi variations as well)! Okay, maybe not every plant, but at least the identifiably different species which have at least a common name! Want to keep track on how that's going? You can find the details at our facebook page.
