Fossil DNA Proves Greenland Once Had Lush Forests; Ice Sheet Is Surprisingly Stable
#1
Science Daily

July,2007

EXCERPT:

Ancient Greenland was green. New Danish research has shown that it was covered in conifer forest and, like southern Sweden today, had a relatively mild climate. Eske Willerslev, a professor at Copenhagen University, has analysed the world's oldest DNA, preserved under the kilometre-thick icecap. The DNA is likely close to half a million years old, and the research is painting a picture which is overturning all previous assumptions about biological life and the climate in Greenland.
