7. Evolution and extinction Life is inextricably bound with the oceans, from its first origins to its blossoming into the rich variety we know today. The passage of life through the different eras of ocean history is marked by evolutionary divergence and episodes of mass extinction, when up to 80 per cent of the planet’s species were wiped out. Evolution has been painstakingly slow—from single-celled to multi-celled organisms, from asexual replication to sexual reproduction with associated mutations, and from soft-bodied creatures for which we have sparse fossil evidence to protective hard parts that are a thousand times easier to preserve.

4. Heredity in the Enlightenment The concept of heredity came of age during the Enlightenment. Botanists and naturalists pioneered the systematic study of sex and inheritance; natural philosophers refined their ideas about how seeds produce living bodies; professional breeders got a lot better at selecting and preserving desirable traits; and the birth of evolutionary theory at the end of the 18th century placed heredity at the very centre of scientific controversy. At the same time, rival ideas about heredity were central to both political philosophies in this age of revolution and reaction and competing attitudes towards gender, slavery, and colonialism.
