PHYLOGENY OF MICROORGANISMS – SNOTTITE

\"\"

What is the evidence for the cells that were found in the deep time?

EXTREMOPHILES SNOTTITE

So, let us see the importance of Snottite.

The thin spike of limestone hanging down from the roof of the cave which were the lived the place of microbes( like extremophiles) is called a Stalactite or Snottites. They are found in Southern Mexico, Italy and other places. Snottite has the consistency of phlegm ( The thick viscous substance secreted by the mucous membranes of the respiratory passages, especially when we suffer from a cold )in our nasal cavity.

Nasal Cavity

The term \”stalactite\” was coined in the 17th century by the Danish Physician Ole Worm. The term SNOTTITE was coined by CAVER JIM PISAROWICZ (1986) where the bacteria found in caves.

\"water

The H2s (Hydrogen Sulfide) gas ( toxic gas) utilized by chemosynthetic bacteria. Similar condition ( snottite in caves) with a lot of H2S (Hydrogen Sulfide) and almost no oxygen ( O2)was found in Earth\’s Early Atmosphere i.e., more than 3.5 billion (3 500 000 000 )years ago, and this probably when extremophile bacteria first evolved, at that time, the cells of all organisms were much less complex than those of plants and animals ( which did not appear on earth until around 2 billion (2 000 000 000) )One billion=one thousand million)years ago.

    The romantic tree of life makes us wonder about our common ancestor shared with earthworms or beetles or fish or birds or dinosaurs!
    …………………………..
    Little did our microbial ancestors know that some of their number would end up evolving into mushrooms, while their brothers and sisters would end up as hydras or humans!
    …………………………..
    Evolutionary trial and error led to delicate ‘perfection’ within a single lineage, having nothing to do with universal culmination of survival traits!
    …………………………..
    Man isn’t the pinnacle of evolution!
    …………………………..
    Man is simply the last surviving twig on a vast but delicate branching bush!
    …………………………..
    Species are constantly spawned and thrown into the evolutionary battlefield only to become extinct, sooner or later!
    …………………………..
    Morphological, biochemical and genetic data place all life on Earth into a single, sublime evolutionary tree!
    …………………………..
    The tree of life represents the phylogeny!
    …………………………..
    Phylogeny is the history of organismal lineages as they evolve through time!
    …………………………..
    Phylogeny is the evolutionary relationship among earthly organisms in reference to lines of descent!
    …………………………..
    Phylogeny presupposes that plants or animals of different types descended from common ancestors!
    …………………………..
    The phylogenetic (evolutionary) tree of life is the result of organic descent from earlier ancestors!
    …………………………..
    In the phylogenetic (evolutionary) tree of life, a domain is the trunk and species are the thinnest twigs! Living organisms sit like fragile leaves at the tips of the branches!
    …………………………..
    A species is a population of organisms that can all interbreed with each other!
    …………………………..
    Evolutionarily speaking, life is cheap! Nature treats living and non-living molecules alike!
    Life is molecular replication driven by blind evolution!
    …………………………..
    More than 99 percent of all species that ever lived on Earth are extinct!
    …………………………..
    Over five billion species came and went into evolutionary oblivion!
    …………………………..
    About 15 million species live on earth now!
    …………………………..
    From the smallest microbe to the largest whale or the smartest man – all are linked by the passage of genes along the branches of a sublime phylogenetic (evolutionary) tree!
