The Holobiont Imperative – New book by Thomas Bosch and David Miller will be published soon
The Holobiont Imperative
Perspectives from Early Emerging Animall
Coming soon: a new book will be released soon on “The Holobiont Imperative”. Written by Thomas C.G. Bosch and David J. Miller, this book examines how the growing knowledge of animal-bacterial interactions, whether in shared ecosystems or intimate symbioses, is fundamentally altering our understanding of animal biology. This new view may have profound impact on understanding a strictly microbe/symbiont-dependent life style and its evolutionary consequences. The scope of this book is best described as an attempt to understand animal evolution in terms of symbiotic interactions and in light of the realization that we animals are intruders that have evolved within a microbial world.
Authors: Bosch, Thomas C. G., Miller, David J.
