    As the plants spread to the interior of continents animals followed and created new ecosystems. Plants producing seeds which could be carried by the air eventually found new locations and began growing. Primitive plants such as lichen attach themselves to rocks and eventually eat the rocks away.  Other plants grow in rock cracks and eventually break the rocks into smaller particles which can be washed away by rain or snow. Plants die and if the conditions are right over time they can form peat or coal.
