Bacterial Lenses: How bacteria have shaped the world within and around us
"We are more bacteria than we realize, not just in number of cells, but because of the many ways in which bacteria have shaped our history and evolution."
Bacterial Lenses shows how closely related human and bacterial evolution are in a constantly changing world. Medina's goal is to provide the reader with an entertaining and easily accessible guide to understanding the impact of bacteria on our history and everyday lives.
In this book, you will discover:
- How bacteria shaped the behavior of unicellular organisms to evolve into communities that gave rise to multi-cellular life forms.
- How bacteria have helped the creation of society, moving the first humans from isolated groups to settlements.
- How bacteria have shaped the evolution of humanity.
- And more...
If you are curious about the world around you, and interested in a book that explores human history from an entirely different point of view, Bacterial Lenses will be a welcome addition to your library.
