I think it's possible.
The method in Jurassic Park was to take dinosaur blood from mosquitoes preserved in amber, take that DNA and somehow implant it into another embryo somehow.
I don't understand why people would want that so much anyway. SO they can be like, 'kewel man a forken dinosaur!'. How would these things affect our ecosystem? ever thought of that? or even these ancient friggin flowers..
ANyway, there is no reason to have to resurrect dinosaurs since they *ARE* still here!
YES, they are alive and all around us!
Here is one..
Dinosaurs are now what we call "birds". Yes, it is true. They are on our dinner tables.

The species never left the ecosystem. It was growing on the tundra 32,000 years ago, never went extinct, and is still growing there today.
they should reintroduce that plant back to the ecosystem...the more biodiversity, the merrier I read somewhere earth now has less than 10% of its biodiversity...
The Emergence to the future Fifth World has begun. It is being made by the humble people of little nations, tribes, and racial minorities. "You can read this in the earth itself. Plant forms from previous worlds are beginning to spring up as seeds as described in SW-II, Effects and Coming Events # 1. This could start a new study of botany if people were wise enough to read them. The same kinds of seeds are being planted in the sky as stars. The same kinds of seeds are being planted in our hearts. All these are the same, depending how you look at them. That is what makes the Emergence to the next, Fifth World.

Nature is a wondrous beauty as the ice age flower blooms after 32000 years of being non-existent.
The story is a bit misleading, as the species still grows wild in the same area that the plant tissue was recovered from the ancient ground squirrel burrows. The species exists and has existed since those fruits and seeds were hidden by the squirrels 32,000 years ago.
Silene stenophylla is a species of flowering plant in the family Caryophyllaceae. Commonly called narrow-leafed campion, it is a species in the genus Silene. It grows in the Arctic tundra of far eastern Siberia and the mountains of Northern Japan. Frozen samples, estimated via radiocarbon dating to be around 32,000 years old, were discovered in the same area as current living specimens; and in 2012, a team claimed to have successfully regenerated a plant from the samples.
