The Precambrian (or Pre-Cambrian, sometimes abbreviated pЄ, or Cryptozoic) is the earliest part of Earth's history, set before the current Phanerozoic Eon. The Precambrian is so named because it preceded the Cambrian, the first period of the Phanerozoic eon, which is named after Cambria, the Latinised name for Wales, where rocks from this age were first studied. In his book „THE NEW PRECAMBRIAN“, the author describes the birth of a completely new view on the Precambrian. He established the „Montana biota“ in the so-called „boring billion“ - a. Aug 22,  · For a scientific book, it is certainly easy to read. Many times, books that cover early Earth biology are written by scientists, who are certainly knowledgeable but are not always the most coherent "writers". The language used is somewhere between a text book and a magazine article that would be written on the subject.3/5(1). Wonderful Life - Steven Jay Gould: Classic. I have good friends that hate this book and know many evolutionary biologists do not fully accept Gould's thesis. But I think it is a must read for anyone who wants to dive into the subject since Gould's.

Pre-cambrian/Cambrian evolution books. question. Could anyone recommend me a book on pre-cambrian and/or cambrian evolution that explains the findings so far in a more user-friendly manner for someone who is not a specialist in the field (but that is still a proper scientific book, i.e. no over-simplifications)?. Precambrian time covers the vast bulk of the Earth's history, starting with the planet's creation about billion years ago and ending with the emergence of complex, multicelled life-forms. Precambrian - Precambrian - Precambrian life: Precambrian rocks were originally defined to predate the Cambrian Period and therefore all life, although the term Proterozoic was later coined from the Greek for “early life.” It is now known that Precambrian rocks contain evidence of the very beginnings of life on Earth—which, based on the age of the rocks that contain the oldest evidence. Oct 01,  · The book's subtitle pays homage to the closing paragraphs of The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, in which Darwin reflected that “elaborately constructed forms, so different from each other, and dependent on each other in so complex a manner, have all been produced by laws acting around us” (Darwin []).

Precambrian shield definition is - the nuclear area of Precambrian rocks present in each of the continents. Precambrian, period of time extending from about billion years ago (the point at which Earth began to form) to the beginning of the Cambrian Period, approximately million years ago. The Precambrian represents more than 80 percent of the total geologic record. One of the most remarkable pieces of evidence disproving evolution is the “Cambrian Explosion” Most textbooks never mention it, and the ones that do relegate it to a short phrase or paragraph as if it is some insignificant detail. The Cambrian Explosion: For most of the nearly 4 billion years that life has existed on Earth, evolution produced little beyond bacteria, plankton, and multi-celled beginning about
