The extent of lateral gene transfer among diverse microbes has effectively broken down our concept of species when we seek to apply it to the microbial world. The explosive growth of whole genome sequences for a great number of microbes give us an unprecedented perspective on the entire process of cellular evolution known. The field is rife with controversies, which have been waged fiercely over the past 20 years and which now are all coming to a point of resolution. Sapp has brought together the best workers in this field to assess what we now know, and to try to reach an accommodation and consensus on the broad outline of how cellular life has evolved.

Review:

"This volume is timely, interesting, and important. Dr. Sapp has gathered a group of authors that includies the best in the field of microbial evolution. ... Any scientist interested in the origin and evolution of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells will want to peruse this book."--Nicholas Gillham,
J.B. Duke Professor of Biology Emeritus, Duke University
"This book has two great advantages. First, it sets out why the subject of bacterial evolution has become of central importance to considerations of the origins of living organisms and of a variety of their cell and molecular mechanisms. Second, it sets out the contrasting viewpoints on the
significance of recent research with unique coherence. The 21st century will see the continuing emergence of radical new ideas on the evolution and interrelationships of living organisms. No other book sets out the currect situation and possible future developments so clearly and
authoritatively."--Sir David Smith, Professor Emeritus at the University of Oxford, Fellow of the Royal Society of London

Book Description Oxford University Press. Hardcover. Condition: New. 352 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.2in. x 0.8in.The birth of bacterial genomics since the mid-1990s brought withit several conceptual modifications and wholly new controversies. Working beyond the scope of the neo-Darwinian evolutionary synthesis, a group of leading microbial evolutionists addresses the following and related issues, often with markedly varied viewpoints: Did the eukaryotic nucleus, cytoskeleton and cilia also orginate from symbiosis Do the current scenarios about he origin of mitochondria and plastids require revision What is the extent of lateral gene transfer (between species) among bacteria Does the rDNA phylogenetic tree still stand in the age of genomics Is the course of the first 3 billion years of evolution even knowable This item ships from multiple locations.
