  • HOW many primary lineages of life exist and what are their evolutionary relationships? These are fundamental but highly controversial issues1. Woese and co-workers2–4 propose that archaebacteria, eubacteria and eukaryotes are the three primary lines of descent and their relationships can be represented by Fig. 1a (the 'archaebacterial tree') if one neglects the root of the tree. In contrast, Lake5,6 claims that archaebacteria are paraphyletic, and he groups eocytes (extremely thermophilic… CONTINUE READING
