A Symbiotic View of Life: We Have Never Been Individuals
TLDR
Recognizing the “holobiont”—the multicellular eukaryote plus its colonies of persistent symbionts—as a critically important unit of anatomy, development, physiology, immunology, and evolution opens up new investigative avenues and conceptually challenges the ways in which the biological subdisciplines have heretofore characterized living entities. Expand
Evolution by association : a history of symbiosis
TLDR
In telling the exciting story of an evolutionary biology tradition that has effectively challenged many key tenets of classical neo-Darwinism, Sapp sheds light on the phenomenon, movements, doctrines, and controversies that have shaped attitudes about the scope and significance of symbiosis. Expand
Getting the Hologenome Concept Right: an Eco-Evolutionary Framework for Hosts and Their Microbiomes
TLDR
Holobionts and hologenomes are incontrovertible, multipartite entities that result from ecological, evolutionary, and genetic processes at various levels that constitute a wider vocabulary and framework for host biology in light of the microbiome. Expand
Genesis: The Evolution of Biology
Part I: evolution and revolution the origin Darwin's champions Darwinism and socio-political thought mutualism dissent from Darwin. Part II: the myth of cell theory the body politic evolvingExpand
The New Foundations of Evolution: On the Tree of Life
TLDR
This review concludes with a summary of the highlights of the author's research, which focused on the " kingdoms at Biology's Borders" and the "three Domains" of the Eukaryote. Expand
Phylogeny and beyond: Scientific, historical, and conceptual significance of the first tree of life
TLDR
The way in which this monumental discovery was made, its context within the historical development of evolutionary thought, and how it has impacted the authors' understanding of the emergence of life and the characterization of the evolutionary process in its most general form are described. Expand
Beyond the Gene: Cytoplasmic Inheritance and the Struggle for Authority in Genetics
TLDR
The organism, heredity, and the cold war in genetics: problems with 'master molecules' and patterns of power. Expand
Getting the Hologenome Concept Right: An Eco-Evolutionary Framework for Hosts and Their Microbiomes
TLDR
Holobionts and hologenomes are incontrovertible, multipartite entities that result from ecological, evolutionary and genetic processes at varying levels and constitute a wider vocabulary and framework for host biology in light of the microbiome. Expand
The Prokaryote-Eukaryote Dichotomy: Meanings and Mythology
  • J. Sapp
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Microbiology and Molecular Biology Reviews
  • 1 June 2005
TLDR
The great historical irony that the “prokaryote,” in both its organizational and phylogenetic senses, was defined (negatively) on the basis of structure is examined. Expand
The dynamics of symbiosis: an historical overview
TLDR
The role of symbiosis in evolution and the evolution and ecology of symbiotic theory are discussed, and research on mycorrhizas has been paradigmatic for revealing the dynamic nature of symbia and the inherent complexities of cost–benefit accounting across the parasitism–mutualism continuum. Expand
