Title: On Complexity and Simplicity as Different Evolutionary Strategies

Journal: Evolutionary Theory, 10, 317-320

Comments: Proposes that complexity and simplicity are not markers of the degree of evolution of an organism, just different evolutionary strategies. Simple organisms (prokaryotes) adapt by changing their phenotype and should exhibit jumping evolution and complex organisms (eukaryotes) a continuous walking evolution.
