There were two similar explosions in the evolution of land plants: These are a very mixed collection of fossils: Living echinoderms sea starssea urchinssea cucumbersetc. The Devonian colonization of land had planet-wide consequences for sediment cycling and ocean nutrients, and was likely linked to the Devonian mass extinction. Eyes may well have evolved long before the start of the Cambrian.

Fossils and Strata 45, Unfortunately, many of the fossils remain poorly understood and are difficult to classify within known explsion groups. So it is safe to call this event an “explosion” – it was crucial to the evolution of life on Earth as we know it.
Burgess Shale type preservation. A phylum is the highest level in the Linnaean system for classifying organisms.
Explosion Cambrienne – Bibliographie
Evidence from 18S ribosomal DNA that the lophophorates are protostome animals. Starting in the Cambrian, animals began to acmbrienne vertically through the sediments and exhibit more varied behaviours, providing cambridnne evidence that mobile bilaterians with differentiated tissues and organs had already evolved. They are so closely shared that control genes from a lab mouse work perfectly well in a fruit fly. Some of these hypotheses deal with changes in the food chain ; some suggest arms races between predators and prey, and others focus on the more general mechanisms of coevolution.
The Cambrian Explosion and the Origin of Modern Marine Ecosystems The rapid appearance of a wide variety of animals – particularly bilaterians – led to the development of radical new ecological interactions such as predation. The shortage of oxygen might well have prevented the rise of large, complex animals.

Hence, they supplement the conventional fossil record and allow the fossil ranges of many groups to be extended. Evolutionary history of life.
Uniqueness and Timing The “Cambrian Explosion” refers to the sudden appearance in the fossil record of complex animals with mineralized skeletal remains. Plankton ecology and the Proterozoic-Phanerozoic transition. Geochemical evidence strongly indicates that the total mass of plankton has been similar to modern levels since early in the Proterozoic. This restricts the data set to juveniles and miniaturised adults.
Early Cambrian sclerite-bearing animals. Morphological complexity layers, segments, lumens, cambrenne arose, in this view, by self-organization.
One or Three Cambrian radiations? Unfortunately for the hypothesis, the last worldwide glaciation seems to have ended around million years ago – nearly 90 million years before the first signs of the Cambrian explosion in the fossil record which was followed by another major regional glaciation around million years ago. Many important developmental genes are shared between widely-divergent animal groups.
Fossilization is a rare event, and most fossils are destroyed by erosion or metamorphism before they can be observed. Evidence of Precambrian metazoans  combines with molecular data  to show that much of the genetic architecture that could feasibly have played a role in the explosion was already well established by the Cambrian.
The rise of these bilaterians permanently altered the nature of the sea floor, an event commonly referred to as the Cambrian Substrate Revolution. Key Cambrian explosion events. Origin and Early Evolution of the Metazoa Around million years ago, there was a notable increase in the complexity and number of eukaryotes species in the fossil record.
Sulfide interferes with mitochondrial function in aerobic organisms, limiting the amount of oxygen that could be used to drive metabolism. Retrieved from ” https: Robert Gaines landscapes and Royal Ontario Museum.
Abstracts with Programs abstract.
From this, it could be argued that the fuse setting off the Cambrian explosion may have been ignited when the genome in the ancestor of all modern animals reached a level of complexity including the evolution of hox -like developmental genes sufficient to create radically new body plans.
Researchers have examined a number of environmental factors that might have been instrumental in the evolution of new body plans, but the two strongest contenders are a rise in oxygen levels and the end of extreme glacial conditions.
Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society.
The pressure to cambrenne is stronger on the prey than on the predator: The intense modern interest in this “Cambrian explosion” was sparked by the work of Harry B. Such theories are well suited to explaining why there was a rapid increase in both disparity and diversity, but they must explain why the “explosion” happened when it did.
