The aim of this book is to integrate discoveries in astronomy, planetology, paleontology, biology and chemistry, and to use this knowledge to give us a better understanding of the likely origin of life on Earth. Contributions range from the environment and atmosphere of the early Earth, through the appearance of organic molecules in the prebiotic environment, to primitive chemical systems capable of self-replication and evolution by mutation.
'Every chapter in this book is relevant and interesting ... a 'must' for the departmental library.' Dorian Pritchard, British Society for Developmental Biology
