From endo- +‎ symbiosis.

Examples

  • Co-evolution is also not mentioned in the current version of this article, nor is endosymbiosis, which is thought to explain the appearance of mitochondria, chloroplasts, and possibly other organelles.

    Conservapedia - Recent changes [en]

  • Then there’s endosymbiosis, which is genetically equivalent to complete fusion of two previously independent genomes.

    The Last Universal Common Ancestor - The Panda's Thumb

  • He rejects the widely-held notion that endosymbiosis (which led to chloroplasts and mitochondria) was the driving force in the evolution of the eukaryotic cell itself or that it was a determining factor in cellular evolution, because that approach assumes a beginning with fully evolved cells.

    A Disclaimer for Behe?

  • Second, there is a great deal of consensus for endosymbiosis — the idea that prokaryotes in symbiotic relationships eventually led or helped to lead to eukaryotes.

    Behe and Gene discuss the Evolution of the Flagellum

  • Margulis is lauded for endosymbiosis, and ignored when she attacks neo-Darwinism in the same way that Behe does.

    Behe and Gene discuss the Evolution of the Flagellum

  • Whereas neo-Darwinists are willing to accept endosymbiosis or symbiogenesis, she will have none of theirs.

    Behe and Gene discuss the Evolution of the Flagellum

  • Neo-Darwinists including her ideas of endosymbiosis and symbiogenesis wouldn't mollify her along with theirs.

    Behe and Gene discuss the Evolution of the Flagellum

  • Do we need to observe one unicellular organism consume another and subsequently observe the consumed one evolve into an organelle before crediting endosymbiosis as plausible?

    Assessing Causality

  • This happened, according to her view, by either bacteria or protists engulfing other bacteria (endosymbiosis), or more recently, by multi-cellular organisms being infected by bacteria or viruses (symbiogenesis).

  • But you think they would offer at least a passing mention of Lynn Margulis's ideas of endosymbiosis and symbiogenesis.
