The major subject of the ebook is a reconstruction of the evolution of apprehensive platforms and brains in addition to of mental-cognitive talents, briefly “intelligence” from least difficult organisms to people. It investigates to which quantity the 2 are correlated. One principal subject is the alleged forte of the human mind and human intelligence and brain. it truly is mentioned which neural gains be certain animals and people clever and inventive: Is it absolute or relative mind measurement or the dimensions of “intelligence facilities” contained in the brains, the variety of nerve cells contained in the mind in overall or in such “intelligence facilities” decisive for the measure of intelligence, of brain and finally cognizance? And that are the using forces at the back of those methods? eventually, it's requested what all this implies for the classical challenge of mind-brain dating and for a naturalistic thought of mind.

3. Late Devonian mass extinction with the disappearance of about 70 % of organisms. 4. Permian-Triassic mass extinction about 248 mya, which is the greatest known mass extinction of all times, in which 57 % of families and 83 % of genera became extinct. This event is believed to have prepared the dominance of the dinosaurs during the Mesozoic. 5. Triassic-Jurassic extinction about 200 mya wiping out 23 of families and 48 % of genera. 6. End-Cretaceous (K-T) extinction about 65 mya, which marked the transition from the Cretaceous to the Tertiary.

Triassic-Jurassic extinction about 200 mya wiping out 23 of families and 48 % of genera. 6. End-Cretaceous (K-T) extinction about 65 mya, which marked the transition from the Cretaceous to the Tertiary. It destroyed about 17 % of families and 50 % of genera. It terminated the dominance of the dinosaurs and opened the way to the further evolution of mammals and birds. These mass extinctions mark most of the transitions between the geological ages. The mass extinctions did not affect organisms indiscriminately; rather, at one time they hit predominantly terrestrial and at other times predominantly marine groups of animals.

The great success in the elucidation of the molecular basis of evolutionary genetics cannot hide the fact that even until today the mechanisms underlying organismal evolution are largely not understood. Best confirmed is the concept of descent of all living beings from one common ancestor or gene pool. Only in this way can the similarities among all organisms regarding the structure and physiology of the cell, mechanisms of reproduction and metabolic pathways be explained in a satisfactory way.
