TPO 45

In this set of materials, the reading passage states that some fossils are discovered in Arizona that they may resemble bees nests, but some sceptics say that this fossil not belong to bees and provide 3 reasons. On the other hand, the listening section brings into question the reading points by providing different reasons (and examples).

First, the reading passage indicates that the earliest fossils record of bees belong to 100 million years ago, and the fossils of bees have not been found from 200 million years ago. In contrast, the lecturer opposes this view by mentioning that it is true that no fossils remain from 200 million years, but it is not mean that bees could not exist. On that time, bees could not preserve fossil because fossils need to fossilized that produce by resin of trees, and on that time, the trees could produce resin were rare. So, the fossils of bees could not produce, and it is not mean bees could not live.

Furthermore, the reading argues that 200 million years ago, flowering plants could not exist, so bees did not have food, and they could not live; conversely, what the lecturer believes is different. She points out that before flowering plants, bees would eat non-flowering plants such as ferns and pine tree, and they adapt with them. In addition, when the flowering plant started to grow, bees could start to eat them.

finally, according to the reading, the fossils in Arizona are similar to moderns bees, but they do not have some parts such as caps, so they could not belong to bees. However, the professor believes that the chemical experiments show that modern bees nests have chemical components that are against water like waterproof. Also, when scientist starts to the chemical analysis of fossils, they understand the fossils have the chemical components as the same as modern bees.
