Book Title: Earth's Earliest Biosphere: Its Origin and Evolution

Author: J. William Schopf (Editor)

Book Description:

My own research focuses on the geochemical impact of microorganisms,past and present. This book, which was edited by my Ph.D. advisor,represents a distinctively bold attempt to approach to understand what the biosphere was like billions of years ago. The interdisciplinary work, published over a decade before I entered the field as a young student, has always been a source of inspiration to me.
