Early Life on Earth (Topics in Geobiology): A Practical Guide: 31

Early Life on Earth (Topics in Geobiology): A Practical Guide: 31

by David Wacey (Author)

Synopsis

When did life first appear on Earth and what form did it take? Rocks older than 3000 Ma should hold the answer to this intriguing question. The young Earth was, however, a very different place to that we know today and numerous pitfalls await our interpretation of this earliest rock record. This practical guide does what has never been attempted before - to bring together all the materials that have been claimed to comprise the earliest fossil record into an easily accessible format. This will be a handbook that every astrobiologist, and potentially every astronaut will wish to have in their backpack.
