Description
Originating from the resin of trees that lived millions of years ago, amber perfectly preserves the animals that become trapped in it. Andrew Ross provides an engaging overview of this prehistoric substance and its fossilized captives for readers 12 and up, explaining how amber is formed, where it is found, and how scientists are using it to study DNA. Dozens of close-up color photographs depict the insects, arachnids, and lizards that came to an unfortunate but undeniably beautiful end.
