Co-evolution of Life and the Planet conference in UCL and Geological Society London
The Earth that sustains us today has arisen out of planetary scale co-evolution of the physical and biological worlds. The complexity of these interactions necessitates a multidisciplinary ‘Earth System Science’ approach. Two years on from ‘Life and the Planet 2011’, this two-day meeting will explore advances in our understanding of the coupled evolution of life and the planet.
The four main themes of this meeting are:
1) Precambrian origins of the modern Earth System;
2) Key events in the evolution of marine ecosystems;
3) Geological constraints on biological evolution in the polar regions;
4) Descent into the Icehouse during the Cenozoic Era.
