PHOSPHORUS AND THE ORIGIN OF LIFE
  • A. Gulick
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 1957
TLDR
The object of this monograph is to contemplate the earliest beginnings of life, an inquiry into the origin of the distinctively biological mode of life as illustrated by the land snails of the Hawaiian islands. Expand
Chemical evolution and the origin of life
TLDR
This paper presents a meta-analyses of the phytochemical properties of phosphorous, nitrogen, and phosphate in response to the presence of carbon dioxide in the gas mixtures of carboniferous strata ofimony,imony, and cadmium from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Expand
What history tells us X. Fifty years ago: the beginnings of exobiology
  • M. Morange
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of Biosciences
  • 2007
TLDR
The contrasting attitude of biologists towards the rise of exobiology, and the search for life on planets other than Earth, from the enthusiasm of Lederberg, Alexander Rich and Norman Horowitz to the harsh criticisms of George Simpson, Ernst Mayr, and most evolutionary biologists are described.

Dr. Blum's main thesis in this small volume is that from the origin of life, evolution has proceeded necessarily along certain channels, predetermined from without by the physical nature of theExpand
Interdisciplinary Search for Early Life Forms and for the Beginning of Life on Earth
Abstract The evolution of life and the nature of the oldest organisms depend on the atmospheric, hydropheric and lithospheric conditions during very early terrestrial history. Specialists, working inExpand
COMPARATIVE CYTOLOGY AND THE EVOLUTION OF LIFE
During the first half of the present century very little interest was displayed in the subject of the possible evolutionary history of living things in general and in their true interrelationships.Expand
PHOSPHORUS AS A FACTOR IN THE ORIGIN OF LIFE
come so far clarified by the stupendous mass of investigation since 1859, that for some time past it has been inescapable to ask, how far back does all this go and what, if any, was the startingExpand
Role of Clay Minerals in Chemical Evolution and the Origins of Life
A number of hypotheses have been proposed regarding the origins of life on Earth. In the Russian text of 1924, Oparin (1938) suggested that simple molecules (e.g., CH4, NH3) in the early Earth,Expand
Habitability of the Solar System
After Miller (1953) tested the idea of Urey (1952) about the synthesis of prebiotic molecules from inorganic compounds such as methane, water, and hydrogen, it was clear that abiotic matter couldExpand
The Origination of Life
A formal solution of the main problems concerning the origination of life is attempted, adopting as fundamental axiom the plausible assumption that it was a spontaneous, natural sequence of "mostExpand
