A new study led by researchers at the Earth-Life Science Institute of Tokyo Tech provides new answers to this question.
 According to Yuka Fujii lead researcher of the study from NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), New York, and the Earth-Life Science Institute at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan: "Using a model that more realistically simulates atmospheric conditions, we discovered a new process that controls the habitability of exoplanets and will guide us in identifying candidates for further study."
According to Jennifer Hoyal Cuthill, from University of Cambridge's Department of Earth Sciences and Tokyo Institute of Technology's Earth-Life Science Institute, and Simon Conway Morris, from Cambridge, rangeomorphs showed a strong degree of ecophenotypic plasticity that gave them an advantage in a world that was rapidly changing at the time.
