It is important to say that amber is much studied but still not fully understood. The problems begin with the names by which the material is known: amber, Baltic amber, fossil resin, succinite, and resinite. Although all these terms have been used to describe the material discussed in this catalogue, they have confused as much as they have clarified. It is generally accepted that amber is derived from resin-bearing trees that once clustered in dense, now extinct forests. Langenheim recently summarized in her compendium on plant resins:. It is clear that the amber is not derived from the modern species of Pinus, but there are mixed signals from suggestions of either an araucarian Agathis -like or a pinaceous Pseudolarix -like resin producing tree.

Baltic amber

A twig of a cypress plant preserved for ca. Cross-sections of the whole plant showed an almost intact tissue of the entire stem and leaves, revealing, to our knowledge, the oldest and most highly preserved tissue from an amber inclusion reported so far. The preparations are based on a new technique of internal imbedding, whereby the hollow spaces within the inclusion are filled with synthetic resin which stabilizes the cellular structures during the sectioning procedure. Cytological stains applied to the sections reacted with cell walls and nuclei. A strong green auto-fluorescence of the cuticle and the resin canals in the leaves was observed.

Look back in amber

Megalyra baltica Poinar and Shaw n. The wasp family Megalyridae includes eight living genera of presumed idiobiont ectoparasitoids, most of which are associated with relict primary tropical forests Shaw b, Their biology is poorly known except for a few species. Their behavior and host range appear to be diverse since one Australian species, Megalyra fasciipennis Westwood, parasitizes cerambycid beetle larvae in wood, while the much smaller Australian M. The long ovipositor of many Megalyra species, as well as the phylogenetic analysis of Shaw b , suggests that parasitism of immature wood-boring beetles is the ancestral and more generalized behavior for the genus.

Но в них была только смерть. Смерть ее веры в. Любовь и честь были забыты. Мечта, которой он жил все эти годы, умерла.

Он постучал. Послышался голос с сильным немецким акцентом: - Ja. Беккер молчал. - Ja.

Это кричала Соши Кута, его технический ассистент, подбегая к платформе с длиннющей распечаткой в руке. У нее был такой вид, словно она только что увидела призрак. - Джабба! - Соши задыхалась.

A new proposal concerning the botanical origin of Baltic amber

Из носа у него пошла кровь. Хейл упал на колени, не опуская рук. - Ах ты, мерзавка! - крикнул он, скорчившись от боли.

 - Коммандер Стратмор у. Советую исчезнуть, пока он тебя не засек. Хейл пожал плечами: - Зато он не имеет ничего против твоего присутствия. Тебе он всегда рад.

Смит сообщил: - Мы вели наблюдение из мини-автобуса с расстояния метров в пятьдесят. Вначале все шло гладко. Халохот, по всей видимости, настоящий профессионал. Но потом появилась группа людей, и Халохот не смог завладеть искомым предметом.

Беккер снова вздохнул, решительно подошел к двери и громко постучал. Пора переходить к решительным действиям. Немец рывком открыл дверь и собрался было закричать, но Беккер его опередил. Помахав карточкой теннисного клуба Мериленда, он рявкнул: - Полиция. После чего вошел в номер и включил свет.
