The enormous rise in atmospheric oxygen concentration about 2500 million years ago, presumably due to oxygenic photosynthesis, led to a decline of anaerobes, which survived by occupying residual niches with a low concentration of oxygen (Kasting, 2001; Anbar and Knoll, 2002; Catling et al, 2005; Kerr, 2005).
