Introduction. Abundant plants grew on broad swampy areas that developed around the margins of the intermountain lakes of the Green River plants were often preserved in the fine-grained limestones, marls and oil shales of the lakes or in the clastic rocks associated with the swamps.

The Green River Formation (GRF) is a controversial formation within creationist earth science. Evolutionary geologists see the GRF as a sequence of about six million varves deposited with other associated formations over a few tens of millions of years of geological time.

1 Furthermore, these geologists also ‘find’ Milankovitch and sunspot cycles in the ‘varves’. the living representatives of that flora. "The Green River is a Middle Eocene formation, about feet in thickness and of threefold character, comprising a lower group of light brown to buff sandy calcareous shale, and a middle group of darker shale, and an upper group of light colored sandy shale.

Central Wyoming, USA, was the site of ancient Lake Gosiute during the Early Eocene.
