Scientists Discover 356 Animal Inclusions Trapped In Opaque Amber 100 Million Years Old (April 1, 2008) Paleontologists from the University of Rennes (France) and the ESRF have found the presence of 356 animal inclusions in completely opaque amber from mid-Cretaceous. The team used the X-rays of the European light source to image two kilogrammes of the fossil tree resin. Most of the organisms discovered are tiny. For example, one of

Unformatted text preview: the discovered acarians measures 0.8 mm and a fossil wasp is only 4 mm. Climate Change And Human Hunting Combine To Drive The Woolly Mammoth Extinct (April 1, 2008) A new paper uses climate models and fossil distribution to establish that the woolly mammoth went extinct primarily because of loss of habitat due to changes in temperature, while human hunting acted as the final straw. They predicted climate and species distribution at different times in mammoth history--126,000, 42,000, 30,000, 21,000, and 6,000 years ago--considering temperature and rainfall simulations alongside the age and locations of fossils. The nail in the mammoth's coffin 6,000 years ago was that, during the later extinction crisis, the mammoth also faced evolutionarily modern humans....
