The merging of two independent populations of heterotrophs and autotrophs into a single population of mixotrophs has occurred frequently in evolutionary history. It is an example of a wide class of related phenomena, known as symbiogenesis. The physiological basis is almost always (reciprocal) syntrophy, where each species uses the products of the other species. Symbiogenesis can repeat itself after specialization on particular assimilatory substrates. We discuss quantitative aspects and… 

7 The Symbiontic Nature of Metabolic Evolution

A scheme for the evolution of the central metabolism with archaeal as well as eubacterial roots is proposed and a remarkable property of DEB theory for metabolic organization is that organisms of two species that exchange products can together follow a symbiogenic route such that the symbiosis behaves as a new organism that itself follows the DEB rules.

Causes and Consequences of Eukaryotization Through Mutualistic Endosymbiosis and Compartmentalization

This paper reviews and extends ideas of eukaryotization by endosymbiosis put within an historical context of processes that may have led up to and those that seem to have resulted from this process.

Dynamic energy budgets in syntrophic symbiotic relationships between heterotrophic hosts and photoautotrophic symbionts.

Consequences of symbiosis for food web dynamics

It becomes possible that a stable two-nutrient–two-prey population system becomes unstable by invasion of a predator and eventually the predator goes extinct together with the two prey populations, that is, the complete food web is destroyed.

Timescale separation and models of symbiosis: state space reduction, multiple attractors and initialization

Abstract Dynamic Energy Budget models relate whole organism processes such as growth, reproduction and mortality to suborganismal metabolic processes. Much of their potential derives from extensions

Excess carbon in aquatic organisms and ecosystems: Physiological, ecological, and evolutionary implications

The evolutionary and ecological implications of ‘‘excess C’’ both at the organism and ecosystem level, as well as governing the energy flux and C pathways at the ecosystem level are discussed.

A niche perspective on the range expansion of symbionts

This work presents a unified conceptual overview on range expansion of symbionts that integrates concepts grounded in niche and metapopulation theories and highlights the dual nature of the symbiont' niche, which is characterised by both host traits and the external environment.

SYMBIOTIC associations are widely distributed throughout the plant and animal kingdoms (Caullery, 1950; Buchner, 1953; Fuller, 1958), but to date relatively little is known about the detailed nature

The eukaryotic crown group Alveolata has a particularly complex history of plastid acquisition, and may or may not be descended from a single endosymbiotic event.

A view of early cellular evolution

A hypothesis, the archigenetic hypothesis, is presented, which generally agrees with Woese-Fox's concept of the common origin of eubacteria, archaebacteria, and eukaryotic hosts, but for the first time a case is made for the evolution of mitochondria from the ancient predecessors of pro- and eUKaryotes (protobionts), not from eub bacteria.

On the Strategy of "Eating Your Competitor": A Mathematical Analysis of Algal Mixotrophy

The classical theories of competition and predation are expanded to explore the effect on the microbial food web of one trophic group possessing both strategies and it is shown that the mixotroph can compensate for a "price" paid in reduced affinity for bacterial prey by a sufficiently high affinity for mineral nutrients.

Dynamic energy budget (DEB) theory identifies rules, which quantify how individuals acquire and use energy and nutrients, and provides constraints on the metabolic organization of subcellular processes.

Ratio of Energy and Nutrient Fluxes Regulates Symbiosis between Zooxanthellae and Corals

It has been an accepted dogma in coral biology that the extensive spatial and long-term temporal success of coral reefs in the oligotrophic littoral of tropical seas stems from the symbiotic association between endocellular microalgae (the zooxanthellae) and the host hermatype.
