About this book

Eukaryotes – organisms whose cells possess a nucleus and internal membranes – first appeared on earth around two billion years ago, when one prokaryotic cell engulfed another. The resulting cells went on to give rise to all fungi, animals, and plants. Origin and Evolution of Eukaryotes discusses the evolutionary processes that led to the appearance of eukaryotes and how they subsequently evolved.
