Biomarkers and the dawn of animal life
The macrofossils of the Ediacara biota (~571-539 Ma) marks the emergence of large, complex organisms in the palaeontological record. Preluding the radiation of modern animal phyla, they may hold important clues to the earliest evolution of animals. However, their phylogeny, ecology and even preservation remain largely unresolved. This thesis explores the questions on the biological origins of Ediacaran organisms based on a new technique, reconstructing their lipid composition using molecular...[Show more]
