The Earth system has evolved through major transitions towards its present well oxygenated, biologically diverse and ecologically complex state, but have these changes made ecosystems and environments more stable with time? 

This symposium will debate a series of major transitions in the light of the most recent research findings that may help us to assess the evolution of biosphere resilience.

The four main themes of this meeting are:

  1. Earth system transitions: the Precambrian
  2. Earth system transitions: the Palaeozoic Era
  3. Earth system transitions: the Mesozoic and Cainozoic eras
  4. How resilient is the biosphere - key notes and discussion.
