Also, the Archaea and Eukaryota use TATA-binding proteins to regulate the initiation of transcription, whilst the Eubacteria use sigma transcription factors. Overall, the Archaea and Eukaryota are more closely related to each other than either is to the Eubacteria and it follows from this that, despite their prokaryotic nature, members of the Archaea should not be regarded as bacteria, a conclusion that some bacteriologists still find difficult to accept (similarly, some mycologists find it difficult to accept that the Oomycota are not true fungi).

At bottom is a painting by Geoffrey Kibby that appeared under the title ‘an artist’s impression of the landscape of the Devonian period’ as a rear cover image on the magazine Field Mycology in April 2008. In the landscape portrayed in these paintings the fungus Prototaxites dominates as the largest terrestrial organism to have lived up to this point in time. Although vascular plants were already present at this time, these landscapes were still dependent on the more ancient primary producers: cyanobacteria (blue–green algae), eukaryotic algae, lichens and mosses, liverworts and their bryophyte relatives.

So, the first billion years (which is a little over 7% of the total age of the universe) would have provided sufficient time for several to many star lifetimes. These stellar life cycles would have created, even that distance of time ago, all the elements which are the building blocks of chemistry. And chemistry means evolution. Chemical evolution provides the potential for life. 3 The Goldilocks planet Fig. 6 million km distance. These images have been combined to illustrate the relative sizes of the two bodies.
