The Protistan Origins Of Animals And Fungi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Fungi and Metazoa constitute two of the major multicellular eukaryotic lineages and a large body of robust data confirms that they are close relatives (Brown et al. 2018; Derelle et al. 2015; Wainright et al. 1993). Together, along with a number of clades comprising unicellular taxa, Fungi and Metazoa make up the eukaryotic supergroup Opisthokonta (Adl et al. 2019). This chapter sets out to describe our current knowledge on the species and biology of the opisthokonts, with a particular emphasis on the unicellular representatives.
