The origin and rise of complex life: integrating models, geochemical and palaeontological data

Discussion meeting

Location

The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG

Overview

Scientific Discussion meeting organised by Professor Rachel Wood, Professor Philip Donoghue, Professor Simon Poulton, Professor Tim Lenton and Dr Alex Lui

The Royal Society, London

Understanding of the triggers and timing of the rise of complex life ~720-520 million years ago has expanded dramatically in recent years. This meeting will integrate diverse and novel geochemical and palaeontological data to create testable hypotheses for the differing roles of changing climate, oceanic redox, nutrient availability, and ecosystem feedbacks, across this profound, but enigmatic, transitional period.

More information on the programme and speakers will be available soon. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
