, 2010Origins of Proterozoic-Cambrian photosynthetic micro biotaStudy Subject: Historical Geology, Palaentology Employer: Uppasala University Level: PhD Scholarship Description: Unicellular, organic-walled photosynthetic microbiota (prokaryotes and eukaryotes) diversified at an increasing rate through the Proterozoic and in the Cambrian explosion. Their phylogenetic relationships are still poorly understood because their morphology is not always sufficient to infer their systematic position. Studies of phenotypical features, combined with cell wall ultrastructure, biogeochemistry and biomarkers may help to unravel their biological affinities. More precise placement within a geologic time
