Abstract

On the arrival of oxygen in the atmosphere and with the evolution of aerobic respiration and oxygen transport systems, large multicellular forms of life became those most readily apparent on the surface of the Earth. Because of the physico-chemical properties of oxygen, anoxic environments are still compatible with the oxygenated general atmosphere, and in these obligate anaerobic bacteria flourish.
