Short summary
Growing shore-platform stromatolites are increasingly found on modern rocky coasts. Stromatolites are very similar to Archean and Proterozoic stromatolites. A study of modern stromatolites may shed light on the conditions that existed on the early Earth and other planets and possibly provide information on how life began.
