    Abstract

    Life on Earth epends on the endless recycling of elements as matter and energy are required to sustain life. The prokaryotes (Bacteria and Archaea) are the masters of the trade of life. After all, they were already responsible for the major biogeochemical cycles 3.000 million years ago, long before other groups of organisms emerged on this planet. Thus, it is not surprising that the phylogenetic and metabolic diversity of prokaryotes is so enormous compared to that of eukaryotes. ...Zie: Summary
