Oregon State University studies of amber are a primary focus of a NOVA television special in February, 2006, in which researchers used insects and plants found in these prehistoric fossils to help recreate the type of ancient rain forest that existed in the Dominican Repuplic 20 million years ago. The amber samples used in this research included a plant seed, scorpion, mosquito and bee. Feb. 2006. See story: oregonstate.edu/ua/ncs/archives/2006/feb/amber-research-b...
