Remarks on modelling serial endosymbiosis and evolution of eukaryote tissue formation

  • P. L. Antonelli
  • S. F. Rutz
  • G. S. Ferreira Jr.


A model of L. Margulis' serial endosymbiosis theory, using projective geometry, is shown to be compatible with G.S. Ferreira Jr's recent model of tissue formation, which is based on differential adhesion of cells and Finslerian anholonomic frames describing phenotypic deformation. The Gould-Eldredge theory of punctuated equilibria is herein modelled and shown to be centrally important for this compatibility.
