Read & Download Microcosmos 109 K provides a beautifully written view of evolution as a process based on interdependency and the interconnectedness of all life on the planet. Microcosmos is a history of evolution from the viewpoint of the bacteria It made me realize how accustomed I have become to reading books into which authors insert themselves They travel to various places to research their books and they tell about what they learn from their point of view The authors of this book in contrast seemed strangely absent or behind the scenes There are just a few humorous phrases to convey a feeling of Microcosmos coming from real actual people Grade school textbooks used to be like this The subject matter is certainly interesting and clearly and chronologically presented The stippled illustrations for each chapter heading are charming I agree with other reviewers that the last couple of chapters didn t fit well with the rest of the book because they got way too speculative I was also really tired from reading this book and could hardly wait to finish it It really isn t the kind of book that reads itself

Read & Download Microcosmos 109 Create a vivid new picture of the world that is crucial to our understanding of the future of the planet Addressed to general readers the boo. Life has existed on Earth for nearly 4 billion years For 80% of that time according to Microcosmos it consisted solely of pre cellular and single celled organisms Authors Margulis and Sagan give a convincing and engrossing account of how atoms and molecules on the early Earth may have coalesced and combined eventually forming complex molecules that could make copies of themselves Through a variety of chemical interactions these complex molecules combined together to form bacterial cells groups of molecules contained within a membrane that separated self from non self for the first time Bacteria consumed chemicals from the surrounding environment to produce energy that they used to maintain themselves and to reproduce The authors explain how early evolution depended as much on symbiosis between different bacteria specialized at different tasks such as photosynthesis or movement as it did on Darwin s survival of the fittest In the process they completely changed the Earth polluting the atmosphere with oxygen that later became a key element for later generations of bacteria Eventually the bacteria had developed and evolved almost all the basic biochemical reactions that drive all forms of life on Earth today Only after the biochemistry problems were solved did multi cellular life forms like plants and animals evolveThis is an amazing story and one that was just becoming understood when I took biology in high school in the late 1970s I would love to find out what discoveries have been made since this book was first published in 1985One weakness of the book is the final couple of chapters The authors leave microbes behind and outline the possible evolutionary history of plants dinosaurs and humans The final chapter speculates on how humans might evolve as they colonize other planets and space environments I found those chapters uite a departure from the earlier focus on the titular microscopic organismsBe aware that there is a lot of scientific vocabulary in this book and some descriptions of chemical reactions You don t have to remember your high school science to understand the gist of this book but it will certainly help if you do
