Recently, Chinese and British scientists reported in Nature Geoscience that the formation of earth supercontinent Rodinia, 1 billion years ago, may have swept toxic hydrogen sulphide away from Proterozoic ocean coasts. This significantly accelerated the growing complexity of eukaryotic life there, the team surmised, as hydrogen-sulphide was replaced by eukaryote-friendly iron.
