Amber: Using "Tree Tears Turned to Stone" to Teach Biology, Ecology, and More!
Clary, Renee M.; Wandersee, James H.
Science Scope, v33 n3 p22-28 Nov 2009
Amber is a fossil by itself, and can also contain plants and animals that lived millions of years ago. Some of these perfectly preserved specimens give scientists a convenient window to past environments, including the biology, ecology, geology, and chemistry of Earth's past. By using an interdisciplinary approach, we can demonstrate to students a more accurate representation of the scientific community, which does not work in isolation. (Contains 6 figures.)
