  • Résumé

Starting with Carolus Linnaeus in the 17th century, scientists have struggled to order and categorize the forms of life on Earth. In 1977, a lone scientist named Carl Woese determined that archaea were a distinct form of life. This book tells the story of their potential and investigates their history to provide an account of the discovery.
