Amber specimen captures ancient chemical battle
Date:8/29/2007

based on the insect life that lived then.

Insects give us a fascinating window to the world, and they are survivors, Poinar said. This particular species lived right on through the K-T Boundary at 65 million years ago, when the dinosaurs and many other species disappeared.

These insects were here a long time before humans, and we can learn a great deal from their remains, he said. And theyll probably still be here a long time after our species is gone.
