Re: So, Big_Al35, what is MACROevolution?

All references to evolution on bacteria are referred to as micro not macro. A simple google search will tell you that.

Funny, when I searched google scholar, this article was on the first page:

Macro-and microevolution of bacteria in symbiotic systems

From the abstract:

Macroevolutionary rearrangements of bacterial genomes result from the structural changes in their populations, wherein various selection modes are combined with stochastic processes (genetic drift, population waves) induced in the symbiotic systems.

All micro-evolution, indeed...
