Description
Charles Darwin made a powerful argument for evolution in the Origin of Species, based on all the evidence available to him. But a few things puzzled him. One was how inheritance works—he did not know about genes. This book concerns another of Darwin's dilemmas, and the efforts of modern paleontologists to solve it. Darwin found that the most ancient sedimentary rocks, before the Cambrian age, seemed to be barren of fossils, when he would expect them to be teeming with life. Decades of work by modern paleontologists have indeed brought us amazing fossils from far beyond the Cambrian, yet they are enigmatic, and something does seem to happen around the Cambrian—an "explosion" that sped up evolution drastically and produced many of the early forms of animals we know today. Paleontologist Martin Brasier takes us into the deep, dark ages of the Precambrian to explore Darwin's lost world, piecing together the puzzle of what happened 540 million years ago.
