Building Blocks of Life: Bacteria

Life on earth comes in many different forms, but these forms can be broken into two different types depending on their cells. In biology, we call these eukaryotes and prokaryotes. 348 more words

Climbing Up the Tree of Life

Remember the tree of life? The monumental, ridiculously gigantic construct we would ponder upon in our biology textbooks at schools? We were told all of biology revolved around it – it was the underlying concept picturing the genealogy of all life forms on Earth, linking every single organism ever recorded in a single, colossal family tree, right down to our last known ancestor, L.U.C.A. 486 more words
