So I understand that Carbon Dating doesn't work for organisms found in water. Is this true for this lake as well? What other methods do they have for organic life that they could use to date this lake?
Scientists in Russia have gone Michael Crichton and brought something long dead back to the land of the living. The Russian team didn’t regenerate a dinosaur. The team brought a rather beautiful Ice Age plant back from the dead. The plant is called Silene stenophylla and the long dead plant was regenerated after the discovery of an Ice Age squirrel burrow in Siberia that had seeds and fruit. The Russian scientists dug the seeds out of the permafrost where it had been locked in ice for 30,000 years. Regeneration of the plant makes Silene stenophylla the oldest plant to ever be regenerated. Canadian researchers had previously regenerated significantly younger plants from seeds found in similar burrows.
