These mounds of micro-organisms also lived two billion years ago and changed the atmosphere of Earth making it hospitable for the organic life we are familiar with. This is just one of the amazing journeys that RICHARD FORTEY made looking for examples of “living fossils” Fortey is the author of many books  and was the Senior Paleontologist at the Natural History Museum in London until his retirement in 2006.
