In fact, eukaryotic structure and function are more complex than those of prokaryotes at all levels of organization, from the molecular level on up. Eukaryotes and prokaryotes have developed according to fundamentally different evolutionary strategies. Prokaryotes have exploited the advantages of simplicity and miniaturization: Their rapid growth rates permit them to occupy ecological niches in which there may be drastic fluctuations of the available nutrients.

This observation supports the classical notion that eukaryotes are descended from a highly developed prokaryote, possibly a mycoplasma.

The cytoplasm, which occupies the middle region of the drawing, is predominantly filled with ribosomes engaged in protein synthesis (Section 32-3). The left side of the drawing contains a dense tangle of DNA in complex with specific proteins. Only the largest macromolecules and molecular assemblies are shown. In a living cell, the remaining space in the cytoplasm would be crowded with smaller molecules and water (a water molecule would be about the size of the period at the end of this sentence).
