An evolutionary scenario for the transition to undifferentiated multicellularity

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America

Jan 28, 2003

Thomas Pfeiffer, Sebastian Bonhoeffer

Abstract

The evolutionary transition from single cells toward multicellular forms of life represents one of the major transitions in the evolution of complex organisms. In this transition, single autonomously reproducing cells became parts of larger reproducing entities that eventually constitut...read more
