Age: Cambrian.  

Formation: Wheeler. 

Location: Millard county, Utah.   

The algae together with the protozoa belong to the protoctist kingdom, but we have included it in the Paleobotanical section.

The Cambrian period produced the most intense outbreak of life ever known. The Cambrian explosion resulted in the emergence of an incredible diversity of life on earth that includes many of the main groups of animals present today. It is still unclear what was the spark that made this biological bonanza possible. It may be the oxygen present in the atmosphere that, thanks to the cyanobacterial and algae emissions when performing photosynthesis, reached the necessary levels to boost the growth of more complex body structures and life forms.
