  1. 0 Chapter 16 The Origin and Evolution of Microbial Life: Prokaryotes and Protists

  2. Colorized SEM 650 PROKARYOTES • 16.7 Prokaryotes have inhabited Earth for billions of years • Prokaryotes are the oldest life-forms • And remain the most numerous and widespread organisms Figure 16.7

  3. Three Domains – Archaea, Bacteria, Eukarya

  4. 16.8 Bacteria and archaea are the two main branches of prokaryotic evolution • Domains Bacteria and Archaea • Are distinguished on the basis of nucleotide sequences and other molecular and cellular features

  5. Differences between Bacteria and Archaea Table 16.8

  6. Colorized SEM 3,000 Colorized SEM 12,000 Colorized SEM 9,000 • 16.9 Prokaryotes come in a variety of shapes • Prokaryotes may be shaped as • Spheres (cocci) • Rods (bacilli) • Curves or spirals (vibrio or spirochaete) Figure 16.9A–C

  7. 16.10Various features contribute to the success of prokaryotes • External Structures • Cell wall • Pili • Flagella • Reproduction and adaptation • Specialized internal structures • Form colonies • Varied methods of obtaining food

  14. 16.11 Prokaryotes obtain nourishment in a variety of ways • As a group • Prokaryotes exhibit much more nutritional diversity than eukaryotes

  15. Types of Nutrition • Autotrophs make their own organic compounds from inorganic sources • Photoautotrophs harness sunlight for energy and use CO2 for carbon • Chemoautotrophs obtain energy from inorganic chemicals instead of sunlight

  16. Heterotrophs obtain their carbon atoms from organic compounds • Photoheterotrophs can obtain energy from sunlight • Chemoheterotrophs are so diverse that almost any organic molecule can serve as food for some species Figure 16.11A
