Life in Extreme Environments & Roots of Life

Life is thought to have arisen around 3.8 billion years ago beginning with relatively simple one-celled micro-organisms. Having existed about two billion years longer than multi-celled (eukaryotic) organisms, these prokaryotic micro-organisms are extraordinarily diverse and live in an extremely broad range of habitats.
