The long term evolution of chemosynthetic ecosystems and its possible drivers

New taxa have colonized chemosynthetic ecosystems through most of Earth history. But was the timing of these colonizations stochastic or characterized by certain important events that interrupted long periods of evolutionary stasis? Addressing this question through a combination of fossil and molecular data starts to reveal a dynamic history of colonization and radiation that is linked to global environmental changes, especially during the mid-Cretaceous and the late Eocene-early Oligocene.
