This chapter introduces early contributions to the science of symbiogenesis. It describes the historical contributions of Boris Kozo-Polyansky and Konstantin Sergeyevich Mereschkovsky to the great idea that cells with nuclei come from multiple lines of bacteria. Mereschkovsky addressed the idea of symbiogenesis in evolution in his The Theory of Two Plasms as the Basis of Symbiogenesis, a New Study of the Origins of Organisms. Kozo-Polyansky connected symbiogenetic ideas to evolution to Charles Darwin’s pangenesis and to Darwin’s famous statement. His book, The New Principle of Biology: An Essay of the Theory of Symbiogenesis, remains an important and remarkable publication about symbiogenesis.

Keywords:   symbiogenesis, Boris Kozo-Polyansky, Konstantin Sergeyevich Mereschkovsky, cells, nuclei, The Theory of Two Plasms, The New Principle of Biology
