It is strange how so many odd things occurred during the Ediacaran

period.

Do you have these things at your hand? I would be very interested, what happened then.

- low magnetic field

- snowball earth (or later or earlier?)

- evolution of multicelluar organisms.

Thank you!

did or did not affect evolution of plants and animals?

No magnetic field would increase mutation rate significantly, I think.
