Microfossils

From Pilbara

Evidence in the microscopic

To date, no microfossils have been found in association with the ancient stromatolites of the 3.5 billion year old Pilbara. But it is not surprising - microbes do not have bony structures that are preserved. Instead there are shapes in rocks that suggest microfossils. In the early Archean these are controversial - see the Schopf Locality for more information.
