Inferred life cycle and high degree of organellar complexity of the last common ancestor of all extant eukaryotes
This image was taken from an article that touches upon the formation of a nucleus within cells (both prokaryotic and eukaryotic), as well as the initiation of mitosis in cellular evolution. I thought these steps of progress into the development of eukaryotic cells is a significant background to the difference between prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Within this article, is this image - The (inferred) lifecycle of what is thought to be a common ancestor to eukaryotes that are still around today.
