Multicellularity: Origins and Evolution (Vienna Series in by Karl J. Niklas,Stuart A. Newman,John T. Bonner

By Karl J. Niklas,Stuart A. Newman,John T. Bonner

The evolution of multicellularity increases questions relating to genomic and developmental commonalities and discordances, selective merits and drawbacks, actual determinants of improvement, and the origins of morphological novelties. It additionally represents a metamorphosis within the definition of individuality, simply because a brand new organism emerges from interactions between unmarried cells. This quantity considers those and different questions, with contributions that discover the origins and effects of the evolution of multicellularity, addressing various subject matters, organisms, and experimental protocols.Each part makes a speciality of chosen issues or specific lineages that current an important perception or problem. The individuals think of the fossil checklist of the paleontological conditions within which animal multicellularity advanced; cooptation, recurrent styles, modularity, and believable pathways for multicellular evolution in crops; theoretical methods to the amoebozoa and fungi (cellular slime molds having lengthy supplied a strong version process for exploring the evolution of multicellularity), crops, and animals; genomic toolkits of metazoan multicellularity; and philosophical facets of the which means of individuality in gentle of multicellular evolution.
