Chapter 25(2)

  1. 1. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings PowerPoint Lectures for Biology, Seventh Edition Neil Campbell and Jane Reece Lectures by Chris Romero Chapter 26 The Tree of Life An Introduction to Biological Diversity
  2. 2. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Overview: Changing Life on a Changing Earth • Life is a continuum – Extending from the earliest organisms to the great variety of species that exist today
  3. 3. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Geological events that alter environments – Change the course of biological evolution • Conversely, life changes the planet that it inhabits Figure 26.1
  4. 4. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Geologic history and biological history have been episodic – Marked by what were in essence revolutions that opened many new ways of life
  5. 5. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Concept 26.1: Conditions on early Earth made the origin of life possible • Most biologists now think that it is at least a credible hypothesis – That chemical and physical processes on early Earth produced very simple cells through a sequence of stages • According to one hypothetical scenario – There were four main stages in this process
  6. 6. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Synthesis of Organic Compounds on Early Earth • Earth formed about 4.6 billion years ago – Along with the rest of the solar system • Earth’s early atmosphere – Contained water vapor and many chemicals released by volcanic eruptions
  7. 7. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings As material circulated through the apparatus, Miller and Urey periodically collected samples for analysis. They identified a variety of organic molecules, including amino acids such as alanine and glutamic acid that are common in the proteins of organisms. They also found many other amino acids and complex, oily hydrocarbons. RESULTS Figure 26.2 Miller and Urey set up a closed system in their laboratory to simulate conditions thought to have existed on early Earth. A warmed flask of water simulated the primeval sea. The strongly reducing “atmosphere” in the system consisted of H2, methane (CH4), ammonia (NH3), and water vapor. Sparks were discharged in the synthetic atmosphere to mimic lightning. A condenser cooled the atmosphere, raining water and any dissolved compounds into the miniature sea. EXPERIMENT Electrode Condenser Cooled water containing organic molecules H2O Sample for chemical analysis Cold water Water vapor CH4 H 2 NH 3 CONCLUSION Organic molecules, a first step in the origin of life, can form in a strongly reducing atmosphere. • Laboratory experiments simulating an early Earth atmosphere – Have produced organic molecules from inorganic precursors, but the existence of such an atmosphere on early Earth is unlikely
  8. 8. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Instead of forming in the atmosphere – The first organic compounds on Earth may have been synthesized near submerged volcanoes and deep-sea vents Figure 26.3
  9. 9. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Extraterrestrial Sources of Organic Compounds • Some of the organic compounds from which the first life on Earth arose – May have come from space • Carbon compounds – Have been found in some of the meteorites that have landed on Earth
  10. 10. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Looking Outside Earth for Clues About the Origin of Life • The possibility that life is not restricted to Earth – Is becoming more accessible to scientific testing
  11. 11. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Abiotic Synthesis of Polymers • Small organic molecules – Polymerize when they are concentrated on hot sand, clay, or rock
  12. 12. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Protobionts • Protobionts – Are aggregates of abiotically produced molecules surrounded by a membrane or membrane-like structure
  13. 13. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Laboratory experiments demonstrate that protobionts – Could have formed spontaneously from abiotically produced organic compounds • For example, small membrane-bounded droplets called liposomes – Can form when lipids or other organic molecules are added to water
  14. 14. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings 20 m (a) Simple reproduction. This lipo- some is “giving birth” to smaller liposomes (LM). (b) Simple metabolism. If enzymes—in this case, phosphorylase and amylase—are included in the solution from which the droplets self-assemble, some liposomes can carry out simple metabolic reactions and export the products. Glucose-phosphate Glucose-phosphate Phosphorylase Starch Amylase Maltose Maltose Phosphate Figure 26.4a, b
  15. 15. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings The “RNA World” and the Dawn of Natural Selection • The first genetic material – Was probably RNA, not DNA
  16. 16. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • RNA molecules called ribozymes have been found to catalyze many different reactions, including – Self-splicing – Making complementary copies of short stretches of their own sequence or other short pieces of RNA Figure 26.5 Ribozyme (RNA molecule) Template Nucleotides Complementary RNA copy 3 5 5
  17. 17. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Early protobionts with self-replicating, catalytic RNA – Would have been more effective at using resources and would have increased in number through natural selection
  18. 18. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Concept 26.2: The fossil record chronicles life on Earth • Careful study of fossils – Opens a window into the lives of organisms that existed long ago and provides information about the evolution of life over billions of years
  19. 19. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings How Rocks and Fossils Are Dated • Sedimentary strata – Reveal the relative ages of fossils
  20. 20. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Index fossils – Are similar fossils found in the same strata in different locations – Allow strata at one location to be correlated with strata at another location Figure 26.6
  21. 21. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • The absolute ages of fossils – Can be determined by radiometric dating Figure 26.7 1 2 3 4 Accumulating “daughter” isotope Ratioofparentisotope todaughterisotope Remaining “parent” isotope 1 1 1 1 Time (half-lives) 2 4 8 16
  22. 22. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • The magnetism of rocks – Can also provide dating information • Magnetic reversals of the north and south magnetic poles – Have occurred repeatedly in the past – Leave their record on rocks throughout the world
  23. 23. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings The Geologic Record • By studying rocks and fossils at many different sites – Geologists have established a geologic record of Earth’s history
  24. 24. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • The geologic record is divided into – Three eons: the Archaean, the Proterozoic, and the Phanerozoic – Many eras and periods • Many of these time periods – Mark major changes in the composition of fossil species
  25. 25. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • The geologic record Table 26.1
  26. 26. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Mass Extinctions • The fossil record chronicles a number of occasions – When global environmental changes were so rapid and disruptive that a majority of species were swept away Figure 26.8 Cambrian Proterozoiceon Ordovician Silurian Devonian Carboniferous Permian Triassic Jurassic Cretaceous Paleogene Neogene Numberoffamilies() Number of taxonomic families Extinction rate Cretaceous mass extinction Permian mass extinction Millions of years ago Extinctionrate() Paleozoic Mesozoic 0 20 60 40 80 100 600 500 400 300 200 100 0 2,500 1,500 1,000 500 0 2,000 Ceno- zoic
  27. 27. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Two major mass extinctions, the Permian and the Cretaceous – Have received the most attention • The Permian extinction – Claimed about 96% of marine animal species and 8 out of 27 orders of insects – Is thought to have been caused by enormous volcanic eruptions
  28. 28. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • The Cretaceous extinction – Doomed many marine and terrestrial organisms, most notably the dinosaurs – Is thought to have been caused by the impact of a large meteor Figure 26.9 NORTH AMERICA Chicxulub crater Yucatán Peninsula
  29. 29. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Much remains to be learned about the causes of mass extinctions – But it is clear that they provided life with unparalleled opportunities for adaptive radiations into newly vacated ecological niches
  30. 30. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • The analogy of a clock – Can be used to place major events in the Earth’s history in the context of the geological record Figure 26.10 Land plants Animals Multicellular eukaryotes Single-celled eukaryotes Atmospheric oxygen Prokaryotes Origin of solar system and Earth Humans Ceno- zoicMeso- zoic Paleozoic Archaean Eon Billions of years ago Proterozoic Eon 1 2 3 4
  31. 31. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Concept 26.3: As prokaryotes evolved, they exploited and changed young Earth • The oldest known fossils are stromatolites – Rocklike structures composed of many layers of bacteria and sediment – Which date back 3.5 billion years ago
  32. 32. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Lynn Margulis (top right), of the University of Massachussetts, and Kenneth Nealson, of the University of Southern California, are shown collecting bacterial mats in a Baja California lagoon. The mats are produced by colonies of bacteria that live in environments inhospitable to most other life. A section through a mat (inset) shows layers of sediment that adhere to the sticky bacteria as the bacteria migrate upward. Some bacterial mats form rocklike structures called stromatolites, such as these in Shark Bay, Western Australia. The Shark Bay stromatolites began forming about 3,000 years ago. The inset shows a section through a fossilized stromatolite that is about 3.5 billion years old. (a) (b) Figure 26.11a, b
  33. 33. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings The First Prokaryotes • Prokaryotes were Earth’s sole inhabitants – From 3.5 to about 2 billion years ago
  34. 34. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Electron Transport Systems • Electron transport systems of a variety of types – Were essential to early life – Have: some aspects that possibly precede life itself
  35. 35. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Photosynthesis and the Oxygen Revolution • The earliest types of photosynthesis – Did not produce oxygen
  36. 36. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Oxygenic photosynthesis – Probably evolved about 3.5 billion years ago in cyanobacteria Figure 26.12
  37. 37. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • When oxygen began to accumulate in the atmosphere about 2.7 billion years ago – It posed a challenge for life – It provided an opportunity to gain abundant energy from light – It provided organisms an opportunity to exploit new ecosystems
  38. 38. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Concept 26.4: Eukaryotic cells arose from symbioses and genetic exchanges between prokaryotes • Among the most fundamental questions in biology – Is how complex eukaryotic cells evolved from much simpler prokaryotic cells
  39. 39. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings The First Eukaryotes • The oldest fossils of eukaryotic cells – Date back 2.1 billion years
  40. 40. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Endosymbiotic Origin of Mitochondria and Plastids • The theory of endosymbiosis – Proposes that mitochondria and plastids were formerly small prokaryotes living within larger host cells
  41. 41. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • The prokaryotic ancestors of mitochondria and plastids – Probably gained entry to the host cell as undigested prey or internal parasites Figure 26.13 Cytoplasm DNA Plasma membrane Ancestral prokaryote Infolding of plasma membrane Endoplasmic reticulum Nuclear envelope Nucleus Engulfing of aerobic heterotrophic prokaryote Cell with nucleus and endomembrane system Mitochondrion Ancestral heterotrophic eukaryote Plastid Mitochondrion Engulfing of photosynthetic prokaryote in some cells Ancestral Photosynthetic eukaryote
  42. 42. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • In the process of becoming more interdependent – The host and endosymbionts would have become a single organism
  43. 43. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • The evidence supporting an endosymbiotic origin of mitochondria and plastids includes – Similarities in inner membrane structures and functions – Both have their own circular DNA
  44. 44. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Eukaryotic Cells as Genetic Chimeras • Additional endosymbiotic events and horizontal gene transfers – May have contributed to the large genomes and complex cellular structures of eukaryotic cells
  45. 45. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Some investigators have speculated that eukaryotic flagella and cilia – Evolved from symbiotic bacteria, based on symbiotic relationships between some bacteria and protozoans Figure 26.14 50 m
  46. 46. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Concept 26.5: Multicellularity evolved several times in eukaryotes • After the first eukaryotes evolved – A great range of unicellular forms evolved – Multicellular forms evolved also
  47. 47. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings The Earliest Multicellular Eukaryotes • Molecular clocks – Date the common ancestor of multicellular eukaryotes to 1.5 billion years • The oldest known fossils of eukaryotes – Are of relatively small algae that lived about 1.2 billion years ago
  48. 48. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Larger organisms do not appear in the fossil record – Until several hundred million years later • Chinese paleontologists recently described 570-million-year-old fossils – That are probably animal embryos Figure 26.15a, b 150 m 200 m (a) Two-cell stage (b) Later stage
  49. 49. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings The Colonial Connection • The first multicellular organisms were colonies – Collections of autonomously replicating cells Figure 26.16 10 m
  50. 50. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Some cells in the colonies – Became specialized for different functions • The first cellular specializations – Had already appeared in the prokaryotic world
  51. 51. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings The “Cambrian Explosion” • Most of the major phyla of animals – Appear suddenly in the fossil record that was laid down during the first 20 million years of the Cambrian period
  52. 52. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Phyla of two animal phyla, Cnidaria and Porifera – Are somewhat older, dating from the late Proterozoic Figure 26.17 Early Paleozoic era (Cambrian period) Millionsofyearsago 500 542 Late Proterozoic eon Sponges Cnidarians Echinoderms Chordates Brachiopods Annelids Molluscs Arthropods
  53. 53. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Molecular evidence – Suggests that many animal phyla originated and began to diverge much earlier, between 1 billion and 700 million years ago
  54. 54. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Colonization of Land by Plants, Fungi, and Animals • Plants, fungi, and animals – Colonized land about 500 million years ago
  55. 55. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Symbiotic relationships between plants and fungi – Are common today and date from this time
  56. 56. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Continental Drift • Earth’s continents are not fixed – They drift across our planet’s surface on great plates of crust that float on the hot underlying mantle
  57. 57. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Often, these plates slide along the boundary of other plates – Pulling apart or pushing against each other Figure 26.18 North American Plate Caribbean Plate Juan de Fuca Plate Cocos Plate Pacific Plate Nazca Plate South American Plate African Plate Scotia Plate Antarctic Plate Arabian Plate Eurasian Plate Philippine Plate Indian Plate Australian Plate
  58. 58. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Many important geological processes – Occur at plate boundaries or at weak points in the plates themselves Volcanoes and volcanic islands TrenchOceanic ridge Oceanic crust Seafloor spreading Subduction zone Figure 26.19
  59. 59. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • The formation of the supercontinent Pangaea during the late Paleozoic era – And its breakup during the Mesozoic era explain many biogeographic puzzles Figure 26.20 India collided with Eurasia just 10 million years ago, forming the Himalayas, the tallest and youngest of Earth’s major mountain ranges. The continents continue to drift. By the end of the Mesozoic, Laurasia and Gondwana separated into the present-day continents. By the mid-Mesozoic, Pangaea split into northern (Laurasia) and southern (Gondwana) landmasses. Cenozoic North America Eurasia Africa South America India Madagascar Antarctica Australia Laurasia Mesozoic Gondwana At the end of the Paleozoic, all of Earth’s landmasses were joined in the supercontinent Pangaea. Pangaea Paleozoic 251 135 65.5 0 Millionsofyearsago
  60. 60. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Concept 26.6: New information has revised our understanding of the tree of life • Molecular Data – Have provided new insights in recent decades regarding the deepest branches of the tree of life
  61. 61. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Previous Taxonomic Systems • Early classification systems had two kingdoms – Plants and animals
  62. 62. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • Robert Whittaker proposed a system with five kingdoms – Monera, Protista, Plantae, Fungi, and Animalia Figure 26.21 Plantae Fungi Animalia Protista Monera Eukaryotes Prokaryotes
  63. 63. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings Reconstructing the Tree of Life: A Work in Progress • A three domain system – Has replaced the five kingdom system – Includes the domains Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukarya • Each domain – Has been split by taxonomists into many kingdoms
  64. 64. Copyright © 2005 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Benjamin Cummings • One current view of biological diversity Figure 26.22 Proteobacteria Chlamydias Spirochetes Cyanobacteria Gram-positivebacteria Korarchaeotes Euryarchaeotes,crenarchaeotes,nanoarchaeotes Diplomonads,parabasalids Euglenozoans Alveolates(dinoflagellates,apicomplexans,ciliates) Stramenopiles(watermolds,diatoms,goldenalgae,brownalgae) Cercozoans,radiolarians Redalgae Chlorophytes Charophyceans Domain Archaea Domain Eukarya Universal ancestor Domain Bacteria Chapter 27 Chapter 28
