Bill Schopf and his team discover organism that hasn't evolved in more than 2 billion years

Posted on Feb. 7, 2015

An international team of scientists, led by EPSS Professor Schopf, has discovered the greatest absence of evolution ever reported — a type of deep-sea microorganism that appears not to have evolved over more than 2 billion years. But the researchers say that the organisms’ lack of evolution actually supports Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. The findings are published online by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
