Endosymbiosis: Lynn Margulis

The late Dr. Lynn Margulis, known for her theory on the origin of eukaryotic organelles, that was initially rejected by everyone (early 60s) but she pressed on until it became accepted science (1980s). Many subsequent discoveries followed including that mitochondria and chloroplast have their own genetic material apart from their cell’s nuclear DNA. She was also co-developer the “Gaia hypothesis” along with Dr James Lovelock which states in effect that the Earth is a life form in its own…

Lynn Margulis | Lynn Alexander | 1938-2011 | Biologist and University Professor in the Department of Geosciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She is best known for her theory on the origin of eukaryotic organelles, and her contributions to the endosymbiotic theory, which is now generally accepted for how certain organelles were formed. She showed that animals, plants, and fungi all originated from Protists.
