Noted biologist and author John Tyler Bonner has experimented with cellular slime molds for more than sixty years, and he has done more than anyone else to raise these peculiar collections of amoebae from a minor biological curiosity to a major model organism--one that is widely studied for clues to the development and evolution of all living things. Now, five decades after he published his first pioneering book on cellular slime molds, Bonner steps back from the proliferating and increasingly specialized knowledge about the organism to provide a broad, nontechnical picture of its whole biology, including its evolution, sociobiology, ecology, behavior, and development. The Social Amoebae draws the big lessons from decades of research, and shows how slime molds fit into and illuminate biology as a whole. Slime molds are very different from other organisms; they feed as individual amoebae before coming together to form a multicellular organism that has a remarkable ability to move and orient itself in its environment. Furthermore, these social amoebae display a sophisticated division of labor; within each organism, some cells form the stalk and others become the spores that will seed the next generation. In The Social Amoebae, Bonner examines all these parts together, giving a balanced, concise, and clear overview of slime mold biology, from molecules to cells to multicells, as he advances some unconventional and unexpected insights.… (més)

Thorough yet readable overview of Dictyostelium discoideum and its foundational studies.

Quite a bit on evolutionary species divergence (despite what another review says). I was hoping for more insight and broad picture comparisons of the altruistic behavior of the organism. Though the altruistic label on the stalk forming amoebae seems slightly undermined by the fact that their differentiation is induced not on own their own accord, but by a signaling substance from the amoebae destined to become spores. (The author here makes a comparison to termites: "..which show a balance in different castes. For instance, termites have a fixed ratio for the numbers of workers and soldiers, and it is known that the ratio is maintained by one caste that gives off a substance that controls the number - or percentage - of individuals of the other caste.")

The Social Amoebae: The Biology of Cellular Slime Molds Rather short book about cellular slime molds. ( )

This should have been a concise, 10-page article. Instead it's a point against the scientists in the eternal battle of scientists-versus-writers-writing-science. This is an enthusiastic but woefully unedited ramble by a slime mold expert. ( )
