Held on the 23rd Jun 2019
Professor Ross Large AO
Professor Large challenges the Darwinian concept that evolution is a random process. He will outline recent research on the trace element composition of sedimentary pyrite that demonstrates that the chemistry of the oceans and atmosphere has varied significantly through geologic time in a rhythmic fashion, which has greatly influenced the course of evolution on Earth.
