Why life on Earth first got big © Charlotte Kenchington

Artist’s reconstruction of the community at Lower Mistaken Point. The positions, sizes and taxonomic identity of the organisms in the reconstruction are based on real data from the surface. This community was dominated by the rangeomorphs, Beothukis plumosa and Trepassia wardae. As these communities were below the photic zone, lighting depicted is from an artificial source.
