About this book

Margulis has already advanced the idea that some speciation is the result of genomic fusion, for example that eukaryotes originated through the fusion of an archaebacterium with some eubacteria. It is also accepted that early in the history of life genomes were combined through lateral gene transfers. In this book the authors go further and argue provocatively that all speciation events are caused by symbioses, cooperation and the reticulation of genomes.
