The power of chance
Life is constantly evolving, and yet "progress" is not the right word for this process of organismal change, says evolutionary geneticist Jochen Wolf. A chasm of more than three-and-a-half billion years separates the beginnings of life from today's abundant biological diversity. Virtually all environments on Earth - even the supposedly most inhospitable ones such as Antarctica or the ocean depths - are inhabited by living organisms.
