This unit examines the story of evolution as told by the fossil record over the last 500 million years. Major transitions in the history of life are explored, from the earliest life forms, to the vertebrate invasion of land and the emergence of dinosaurs, as well as the origin of humans. Aspects of evolution are discussed within the context of a constantly changing Earth, including major climatic shifts and extinction events, and how these changes have shaped the complexity of life we see today. This unit assumes no previous scientific studies and is suitable for both commencing science students and those with a general interest in the evolution of life on Earth.
