Life may have been present on Earth since about 3.8 billion years ago or earlier. Multidisciplinary research, especially on the paleobiology and evolution of early microorganisms on Earth and the microbiology of extremophiles in the Earth's environments and under space conditions, enables the defining of strategies for the detection of potential extraterrestrial life by determining biosignatures and the environmental envelope of life.

The geological record of protists begins well before the Ediacaran and Cambrian diversification of animals, but the antiquity of that history, its reliability as a chronicle of evolution and the causal inferences that can be drawn from it remain subjects of debate. Well-preserved protists are known from a relatively small number of Proterozoic formations, but taphonomic considerations suggest that they capture at least broad aspects of early eukaryotic evolution. A modest diversity of problematic, possibly stem group protists occurs in ca 1800-1300 Myr old rocks. 1300-720 Myr fossils document the divergence of major eukaryotic clades, but only with the Ediacaran-Cambrian radiation of animals did diversity increase within most clades with fossilizable members. While taxonomic placement of many Proterozoic eukaryotes may be arguable, the presence of characters used for that placement is not. Focus on character evolution permits inferences about the innovations in cell biology and development that underpin the taxonomic and morphological diversification of eukaryotic organisms. [less ▲]

The vibrational spectra of an extant Archaea, Halobacterium salinarum, an extant micro-eukaryote resistant biopolymer isolated from Botrycoccus braunii, and an extinct (ca. 590-565 Ma) micro-eukaryote microfossil Tanarium conoideum, have been recorded using near-infrared FT Raman spectroscopy and FTIR spectroscopy. Raman biosignatures for the carotenoid pigment, bacterioruberin was obtained from the halophilic Archaea H. salinarum. Another pigment biosynthesized by halophilic Archaea, bacteriorhodopsin a retinal-protein complex was also investigated. The FTIR analysis of H. salinarum showed the presence of proteins and lipids, and the spectrum of isolated bacteriorhodopsin was different in that it contained retinal C-C stretching bands. FT Raman and FTIR analysis of the resistant biopolymer isolated from B. braunii indicated a composition of long straight chain polymethylenic macromolecule-termed algaenan. Moreover, these biopolymers can be preserved on geological timescales, hence the importance of generating a database of these materials for palaeobiology and astrobiology applications. The FT Raman and FTIR spectra acquired from T. conoideum contain intense aliphatic C-H stretching modes in the 2700-3000 cm(-1) region. Both the FT Raman and FTIR spectra are consistent with vibrational spectra obtained from algaenans isolated from extant chlorophytes, for example, B. braunii, or eustigmatophyte micro-algae.
