    Was this species extinct already?
    Or is it just the very old seed of a plant that still exists?

    I'm all for cloning and restoring stuff we still have or recently had in the last century or so. Seeds though are more easily preserved than animal tissue or DNA so moving on to cloning something as old as a Mammoth (which I oppose) is a bigger and far more complex step up.

    Does it really count as "resurrecting" them, though?

    No, because it was never dead, singly or collectively.

    *sigh*

    There is nothing wrong with cloning a mammoth.
