Great waves of biological invasion sweep us into episode two of Australia: The Time Traveller's Guide. The oceans, replete from the explosion of life that began in the Cambrian, now spill their cargo onto the land. Australia, part of the super-continent Gondwana is truly a wide, brown land with no blush of life to blemish its barren surface. As Dr. Richard Smith discovers, that all changed in the Silurian, as planet Earth's forgotten pioneers - plants -invade the shores. Arthropod armies soon follow. Then, the rise and rise of fish and the emergence of four-legged animals onto the land. Once again, prehistoric life was busy bankrolling our modern economy and building the basic elements that we know and love as the Australia of today. Written by Ann Onamus
