Scientists find earliest evidence of animal life
Wed Feb 4, 2009 1:01pm EST
LONDON (Reuters) - Chemical traces left in 635 million-year-old
rocks in Oman provide the earliest evidence so far of animal life,
researchers said Wednesday.
The findings, published about a week before the 200th birthday of
Charles Darwin, are also proof of the simple organisms the English
naturalist said must have existed before evolving into more complex
creatures, they researchers said.
"Basically we have found a thread of that evidence that he predicted
should be there," said Roger Summons, a geobiologist at the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology who worked on the study.
"There is a great wealth of evidence these sponges were the first
multi-cellular organisms to exist."
Using a chemical analysis of molecules in rocks dated to 635 million
years ago, the researchers discovered a modified form of cholesterol
only produced by the sponges.
This suggests the creatures existed before a monstrous ice age that
occurred around 630 million years ago, an interesting finding because
many scientists believe the frozen periods spurred the development of
complex forms of life, Summons said.
These simple forms of animal life came about 200 million years
before land plants appeared on Earth, Summons added. The first single
cell bacteria and other similar forms of life appeared around
two-and-a-half billion years ago.
The oldest visible fossils of animals found in rocks are 580 million
years old but the findings from this paper published in the journal
Nature show that looking at molecular evidence is also key to better
understanding evolution, he said.
"People who look at fossils in rock usually just consider the
visible picture," Summons said in a telephone interview. "This is
showing this isn't the only evidence you should look for."
