Archaea evolution and diversity

Submission status
Submission deadline

In the late 1970’s, our understanding of the tree of life was fundamentally changed with the discovery and recognition of Archaea, a third domain of life along with Bacteria and Eukarya. While superficially similar to bacteria, archaea display unique characteristics that allow them to occupy nearly all environments, including some of the most extreme conditions where they especially thrive.

The Collection offers a platform for the latest research on how archaea diversified and key adaptive features flourished, along with their evolutionary and ecological impacts.
