Since their discovery in 1869, the dictyostelids have attracted the eye of scientists in a large choice of fields. This curiosity has stemmed from their odd way of life and developmental houses, that have been formed by means of the evolutionary forces that generated multicellularity in the course of eukaryotic evolution. extra lately, the dictyostelids have received realization as a result of amazing similarities discovered on the genomic, mobile and biochemical degrees with human cells, which has propelled the species Dictyostelium discoideum to develop into a version procedure for biology and drugs in lots of laboratories. This ebook covers the most recent advances in our wisdom of those notable organisms with issues spanning from their evolutionary historical past, ecology and variety to the new discoveries concerning their mobile and molecular biology.
