In the absence of a fossil record, theories relating to the evolution of protozoa have, for most of the twentieth century, been based on morphological and life cycle data despite their known limitations. However, recent advances in molecular methodology, notably the wide availability of accurate, automated DNA sequencing, have made it possible to deduce the evolutionary relationships of extant species from their genes. This paper focuses on new findings concerning the evolution of the… CONTINUE READING
