A unique account of life's evolution using the most recent research and weaving evolution of fungi into evolution of eukaryotes.Casting aside common theories on life's origins, this is a mycological perspective on the emergence of life on Earth. Moore describes how the first biofilms contributed to the formation of unicellular stem eukaryotes, highlighting the role of the fungal grade of organisation in the evolution of higher organisms.Casting aside common theories on life's origins, this is a mycological perspective on the emergence of life on Earth. Moore describes how the first biofilms contributed to the formation of unicellular stem eukaryotes, highlighting the role of the fungal grade of organisation in the evolution of higher organisms.The rhythm of life on Earth includes several strong themes contributed by Kingdom Fungi. So why are fungi ignored when theorists ponder the origin of life? Casting aside common theories that life originated in an oceanic primeval soup, in a deep, hot place, or even a warm little pond, this is a mycological perspective on the emergence of life on Earth. The author traces the crucial role played by the first biofilms  products of aerosols, storms, volcanic plumes and rainout from a turbulent atmosphere  which formed in volcanic caves 4 billion years ago. Moore describes how these biofilms contributed to the formation of the first prokaryotic cells, and later, unicellular stem eukaryotes, highlighting the role of the fungal grade of organisation in the evolution of higher organisms. Based on the latest research, this is a unique account of the origin of life and its evolutionary diversity to the present day.1. Learning from life on Earth in the present day; 2.
