Example text

In others, nitrogen ixation takes place at night, when there is no photosynthesis. Nitrogen ixation in the terrestrial environment is carried out primarily by bacteria of the genus Rhizobium, which live symbiotically in special nodules on the roots of legumes (family Fabaceae) (Fig. 7). As one more addendum, recent phylogenetic studies (see Hemp and Pace 2010) of the molecular complexes involved with oxygen metabolism in a wide variety of organisms indicate that the genes required for aerobic respiration were transferred from cyanobacteria to a number of diferent bacteria and archaea via horizontal gene transfer.

He diploid phase comes about as specialized cells from genetically diferent strains serve as gametes and fuse together. he zygote undergoes meiosis ater a period of dormancy, generating haploid zoospores that become vegetative cells. Redrawn from Haupt 1953. Contrast this again with the more familiar life cycle of animals, in which the zygote develops into a multicellular diploid individual. he zoospore phase is bypassed, and meiosis is delayed until the animal matures, and then it produces gametes.

He ancestral eukaryote appears to be most closely related to modern archaeans called thermoacidophiles, organisms that thrive in water of extreme temperatures or acidity. hese protoeukaryotes were remarkable in several ways and quite unlike other prokaryotes. hey were lexible, “naked” cells without walls, and capable to some degree of changing shape. hey at least could form pockets at their surfaces that, like tiny mouths, could pinch of around food items and bring them inside. hey were early protoypes of modern amoebas (Fig.
