Knoll shows the intimate relationship between the evolution of life and the evolution of the planet. Our understanding of the earliest origin and evolution of life has made rapid progress over the last few years meaning that this book will continue to be updated by one of the world’s leading authorities.   In this book, Maynard Smith and Szathmary present their hypothesis on the origins of life as we know it today, and highlight an alternative view of evolution. They discuss 7 major transitions that occurred from the very start of life on this planet, covering topics such as self-regulating molecular cycles and the origins of the human language/5(16).

A general discussion of this topic is in Chapter 3 of The Origin and Early Evolution of Life by Thomas Fenchel (). Wohler’s work on urea synthesis in is summarized in The Centenary of Wöhler’s Synthesis of Urea (–), by Frederick Gowland Hopkins (). The evolutionary history of life on Earth traces the processes by which living and fossil organisms evolved, from the earliest emergence of life to the present. Earth formed about billion years (Ga) ago and evidence suggests life emerged prior to Ga. (Although there is some evidence of life as early as to Ga, it remains controversial due to the possible non-biological.

  I would recommend In Search of Cell History: The Evolution of Life's Building Blocks by Franklin M. Harold. This book focuses more on the origin of cells rather than abiogenesis itself, but does address the issue. Any book purely about abiogenesis. As books have now reached the 21st century with the creation of the increasingly popular e-book format, we thought it would be a good idea to take a look back at the long and involved history of the humble book. From the clay tablets to the e-book format, the book has enjoyed a remarkable evolution, presented here is a snapshot of that history.

But oneAuthor: Hardev Singh Virk. There are many different types of organisms in the world: they differ in size, physiology, appearance, and life history. The challenge for evolutionary biology is to explain how such diversity arises. The Evolution of Life Histories does this by showing that natural selection is the principal underlying force molding life history variation.
