Re: Most Invertebrates have HARD parts.
And they look just like modern insects.

What else would they look like? Considering that over a million insect species have been classified, many of theses species look remarkably alike but they are genetically different.

Oxygen Levels and Multicellular life
http://www.cosmosmagazine.com/news/915/darwins-dilemma-solved-researchers

This article discusses the measurement of oxygen levels and the appearance of more complex life forms.

quote:
The sudden appearance of large animals more than 500 million years ago may be due to a huge increase of oxygen in the world's oceans, according to Canadian researchers.

quote:
The research analysed sediments found in 2002 by Narbonne and his research team that contained fossilised 575 million-year-old complex life forms sandwiched between layers of sandstone. Their find pushed back the age of Earth's earliest known complex life to soon after the melting of the "snowball" glaciers of the massive Gaskiers Glaciation 580 million years ago.
