Evolution in a toxic world

How life responds to chemical threats

Evolution of oxygen

Oxygen: The Molecule That Made the WorldThis isn’t an article, but it is a fascinating book about the natural history of oxygen.  Oxygen: the molecule that changed the world, by Nick Lane and published by Oxford Press pretty much says it all in the title. For those interested in early earth history, the evolution of photosynthesis and oxygen on earth and the implications of these major shifts this is a great, readable book.
