Origin and evolution of life

Discover evolution of life on earth, plant evolution, sea animals evolution, bird evolution, silicon based life, multicellular life, world’s oldest fossils, animal biodiversity, bacterial life, bird like dinosaurs, rare ancient worms, animal speciation. Also get to know about Earth’s earliest life and how photosynthesis began producing oxygen billion years ago.

  • New research shows that terrestrial biodiversity recovered much faster than previously thought after a major mass extinction in Earth's history. The study provides new insight into the connections between Earth's biosphere and environment.

  • Scientists have developed a method to analyze the genomes of thousands of bacteria species that cannot be cultured in a laboratory. Because the majority of bacteria on Earth are 'un-cultureable', the breakthrough could provide a vast amount of new data about life on Earth.
