Thomson Job Vacancies

It is a chronological journal, split into eleven chapters that tells the story of the “slow burning fuse” that led to the explosion of life in the Cambrian, the development of the Phyla of organisms that are still with us today. The text is informative, not too technical and designed for the lay person to follow.
