Stromatolites Praecambrianae in Formatione Siyeh, Glacier National Park. Anno 2002, Gulielmus Schopf, investigator in UCLA, commentarium divulgavit in Nature 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.

Abiogenesis vel biopoiesis est studium rationum per quas vita biologica ex materia inorganica rationibus naturalibus oriri potuit. Vocabulum praesertim ad rationes quibus vita in Terra oriri potuit spectat.
