LIFE ON A YOUNG PLANET: 
THE FIRST THREE BILLION YEARS OF EVOLUTION ON EARTH


by Andrew H. Knoll

(second hand copy in mint condition)

Australopithecines, dinosaurs, trilobites - such fossils conjure up images of lost worlds filled with vanished organisms. But in the full history of life, ancient animals, even the trilobites, form only the half-billion-year tip of a nearly four-billion-year iceberg.

Andrew Knoll explores the deep history of life from its origins on a young planet to the incredible Cambrian explosion, presenting a compelling new explanation for the emergence of biological novelty.


Illustrated with black and white and colour photographs.

Published by Princeton University Press. 2003. Softback. 277 pages. Mint condition.
