Associated research grant:16/06114-6 - The Neoproterozoic Earth System and the rise of biological complexity, AP.TEM


We know little about the relative roles of environmental and biological factors involved in the late Neoproterozoic events leading to the ultimate oxygenation of the ocean-atmosphere system and dawn of biological complexity. The project will examine the Physiology, Ecology and developmental behavior of several groups of metazoans to test hypothesized connections between changes in ocean redox, nutrients and the evolution of life.
