Biosignatures & Paleobiology

Oxygen and Life in the Precambrian

By Keith Cowing
November 29, 2006

The December 2006 issue of Geobiology is a collection of papers focusing on the history of Earth’s biogeochemistry, from the earliest sedimentary rocks in Greenland to the late Proterozoic. The rise of atmospheric oxygen provides a thematic link.

The papers in this issue, edited by David Catling and Roger Buick of NAI’s University of Washington Alumni Team, grew out of a session of the Earth System Processes 2 conference in Calgary, Canada, 811 August 2005, sponsored by the NAI. [Source: NAI Newsletter]
