Extinction and survival in the history of animal life: Lessons from deep time

Thursday 27 January 2022, 6pm (GMT)

Life has been evolving on our planet for at least 4 billion years yet animals appeared relatively recently, only within the last 600 million years. During this interval animal life has massively diversified but was retarded by five major extinctions events, the end Permian (250 million years ago) being the most spectacular and devastating. Many animals disappeared for ever, some adapted to change and others set a new direction for animal evolution and the planet’s ecosystem. Much can be learnt from a detailed study of past extinctions, their causes and their survivors and victims. Life has survived these events but commonly not its ecosystems. Join Professor David Harper as he looks back on the history of animal life.
