About this book

When Darwin wrote On the Origin of Species one of his main concerns was with the perceived shortness of the fossil record of life. Until the work of Schopf and his colleagues much of this history was thought to be unknowable. Life in Deep Time documents astonishing discoveries revealing the first 85% of of the history of life. These earliest periods of life on Earth emerge as a tale of individual exploration told by a scholar whose 60 years of research uncovered the richness and diversity which forms the foundation of todays biodiversity.
