Timeline of the evolutionary history of life

This timeline of the evolutionary history of life represents the current scientific theory outlining the major events during the development of life on planet Earth. In biology, evolution is any change across successive generations in the heritable characteristics of biological populations. Evolutionary processes give rise to diversity at every level of biological organization, from kingdoms to species, individual organisms and molecules, such as DNA and proteins; the similarities between all present day organisms indicate the presence of a common ancestor from which all known species and extinct, have diverged through the process of evolution. More than 99 percent of all species, amounting to over five billion species, that lived on Earth are estimated to be extinct. Estimates on the number of Earth's current species range from 10 million to 14 million, of which about 1.2 million have been documented and over 86 percent have not yet been described. However, a May 2016 scientific report estimates that 1 trillion species are on Earth, with only one-thousandth of one percent described.

While the dates given in this article are estimates based on scientific evidence, there has been controversy between more traditional views of increased biodiversity through a cone of diversity with the passing of time and the view that the basic pattern on Earth has been one of annihilation and diversification and that in certain past times, such as the Cambrian explosion, there was great diversity. Species go extinct as environments change, as organisms compete for environmental niches, as genetic mutation leads to the rise of new species from older ones. Biodiversity on Earth takes a hit in the form of a mass extinction in which the extinction rate is much higher than usual. A large extinction-event represents an accumulation of smaller extinction- events that take place in a brief period of time; the first known mass extinction in earth's history was the Great Oxygenation Event 2.4 billion years ago. That event led to the loss of most of the planet's obligate anaerobes. Researchers have identified five major extinction events in earth's history since: End of the Ordovician: 440 million years ago, 86% of all species lost, including graptolites Late Devonian: 375 million years ago, 75% of species lost, including most trilobites End of the Permian, "The Great Dying": 251 million years ago, 96% of species lost, including tabulate corals, most extant trees and synapsids End of the Triassic: 200 million years ago, 80% of species lost, including all of the conodonts End of the Cretaceous: 66 million years ago, 76% of species lost, including all of the ammonites, ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs and nonavian dinosaurs Smaller extinction-events have occurred in the periods between these larger catastrophes, with some standing at the delineation points of the periods and epochs recognized by scientists in geologic time.

The Holocene extinction event is under way. Factors in mass extinctions include continental drift, changes in atmospheric and marine chemistry and other aspects of mountain formation, changes in glaciation, changes in sea level, impact events.

Johan Evertsen

Johan Evertsen was an admiral, born in the 17th century. Like his five brothers, Evertsen started his military career as a lieutenant after the death of his father, "Captain Jan", he moved through the ranks, fighting battles with corsairs and protecting Dutch ships from other privateers. Evertsen was promoted to the rank of admiral during the Anglo-Dutch Wars. Despite Evertsen's successes and influence in the Dutch Navy, his abilities were questioned due to rumours that he was a coward. Evertsen was born in Vlissingen, he was the eldest son of Johan Evertsen known as Captain Jan who died in 1617 fighting near La Rochelle against a French corsair. In gratitude for the services he rendered, all five sons of Captain Jan were named lieutenants by the Admiralty of Zeeland. At age 18, he was made captain of a ship, he fought near La Rochelle in 1625 under Willem de Zoete, in 1626 and 1627 in a campaign against the Barbary Coast under Laurens Reael. Between 1628 and 1636, he distinguished himself while fighting the Dunkirk corsairs.

His greatest successes were in 1628, when he prevented the Dunkirkers from intercepting the captured treasure fleet of Piet Heyn and in 1636, when he captured corsair Jacob Collaert. He played an important part in the Dutch victory in the Battle of the Slaak against the Spanish. In the wake of this battle, he came into conflict with Witte Corneliszoon de With, receive no other important commands. During this time, he developed a friendship with stadtholders Frederick Henry and William II. At the outbreak of the First Anglo-Dutch War, Evertsen was left aside by de With, who considered him an orangist, but after de With's defeat in the Battle of the Kentish Knock, de With was replaced by Maarten Tromp, who reinstated Evertsen as a squadron commander. Evertsen helped to achieve victory in the Battle of Dungeness, extricating Tromp's flagship from an English attack. In 1653, he fought the last Battle of Battle of the Gabbard; the final Battle of Scheveningen was lost and Tromp was killed in battle.

Evertsen's ship was so badly damaged that he had to leave the command to de With. Because he withdrew, Evertsen was accused of cowardice by de With, he received no commands for the next 5 years. In May 1659, Evertsen sailed under Michiel de Ruyter in the fleet that assisted Jacob van Wassenaer Obdam in reconquering the Danish islands after they had been lost in the Battle of the Sound, in which de With was killed. Despite his age, Johan Evertsen was third in command of the fleet that faced the English in the Battle of Lowestoft; the battle went horribly wrong for the Dutch, the first and second in command, Jacob van Wassenaer Obdam and Egbert Bartholomeusz Kortenaer, were killed. Evertsen became commander, but the confusion in the Dutch fleet was so great, that Cornelius Tromp did the same. By evening, the Dutch fleet was in full flight. Evertsen was summoned to The Hague; when he travelled there, he was dragged from his carriage by an angry mob, bound hand and foot, thrown into the water. He saved himself by clinging to the stern of a ship.

He had to be escorted for his protection by an armed detachment to Den Helder, where he was tried for cowardice. The commanders of the fleet spoke out in his favour, when it became clear that Evertsen had prevented the worst possible scenario by covering the retreat of the fleet, receiving 150 bullet impacts in his ship, he was released; when Johan's brother Cornelis Evertsen the Elder was killed in the Four Days' Battle, Johan joined the fleet and took command of the vanguard of De Ruyter. He was killed on the first day of the St James's Day Battle. After much conflict between the Admiralty and the family over the costs, both brothers were buried in 1681 in the Abbey of Middelburg, where their shared grave memorial remains. Johan married Maayken Gorcum, they had five children, Johan Evertsen, the younger, Cornelis Evertsen the Younger, vice-admiral and three daughters. Jonge, J.

Theological University of Northern Italy – Turin Campus

The Theological University of Northern Italy is a university of the Catholic Church, has its main campus in Milan. The administration of the University, located in Milan, in the monastery annexed to the Basilica of St Simplician, is under the leadership of the Bishops of four ecclesiastical regions: Piedmont, Lombardy and Liguria. Liguria joined the other three regions recently; the Turin Campus is the Piedmont branch of the Theological University of Northern Italy. It offers academic degrees similar to those available in the Milan Campus, in the other regions. Instead, the Master Program in Moral Theology is offered only in the Turin Campus, on behalf of all the affiliates of the Theological University; the main building of the Turin Campus is the Palace of the Seminary located at 83, XX Settembre Street, close by the Cathedral of Turin, in the downtown area. The Theological University–Turin Campus offers a B. A. and a M. A. programs. The B. A. is a five-year program. The M. A. program is a two-year program with specialization in social emphasis.

A Master's degree of Theology is conferred at the conclusion of the studies. The Theological University of Northern Italy–Turin Campus is in charge of the supervision of the courses offered at the Higher Institute of Religious Sciences, located in the same building Archdiocese of Turin Turin Campus official website Central Administration in Milan official website
