  • Distinguished Professor Ross Large has uncovered the missing link in Darwin’s theory of evolution. That link is the trace element selenium. His research has found that selenium correlates to nearly every major extinction and growth event in Earth’s 4.5 billion year history. Research has found that selenium correlates to nearly every major extinction and growth event in Earth’s 4.5 billion year history. It is movement of the Earth’s continents that influences the amount of selenium in the oceans. As the continents move and collide mountains are created. These mountains erode over time and disperse nutrients via rivers into the ocean. Levels of selenium become low when there is little movement in the earth's continents. It is a rare trace element, so without an active supply it can become dormant in the sediment on the ocean floor. Without it, things begin to die and life cannot flourish again until the continental plates collide, releasing selenium back into the oceans. Professor Large and his team have developed a method for mapping the oceans trace elements over the ocean’s 3.5 billion year history. The method is only possible using the unique facilities at the University of Tasmania, which is the only lab of it’s kind in the world.
  • Heaven in tasy.. some one who always wants to feel young should stay on campus all the time
