Scientists from NAI’s Penn State Team have contributed to a new book entitled “Neoproterozoic Geobiology and Paleobiology,” Xiao, Shuhai; Kaufman, Alan J. (Eds.). Their article, entitled “Molecular Timescale of Evolution in the Proterozoic,” is one of many sections exploring topics from the rise in complexity of life, to phylogeny and timing of prokaryotes and eukaryotes, the colonization of land by plants and fungi, global glaciations, and “oxygen and the Cambrian explosion.”
