Abiogenesis, vel biopoiesis,[3] vel vulgo origo vitae,[4][5][6] in biologia evolutionaria est ratio naturalis per quam vita biologica, sicut composita organica, ex materia inorganica exoritur. Studium autem abiogenesis praesertim ad rationes quibus vita in Terra oriri potuit spectat.[7][5][8][9]

Primae vitae terrestris formae notae sunt coniecturabiles microorganismi fossilizati, in praecipitis ex foraminibus hydrothermalibus visi, qui abhinc annorum 4.28 billiones vixisse possunt, mox post aevum abhinc annorum 4.41 billiones, cum oceani primum facti essent, et quidem mox post tellurem formatam, abhinc annorum 4.54 billiones.[1][2]
Stromatolites Praecambrianae in Formatione Siyeh, Glacier National Park. Anno 2002, Gulielmus Schopf, investigator in UCLA, commentarium divulgavit in Nature (periodico) qui arguit formationes geologicas sicut haec formatio habere 3.5 Ga (abhinc annorum 3.5 billiones) microbia cyanobacteria fossilizata. Si hoc propositum est verum, ea sunt indicia primae vitae terrestris notae.
