Bacteria have a simpler body plan


Bacteria have a simpler body plan when compared with human beings. Does it mean that human beings are more evolved than bacteria. Provide a suitable explanation.


Both bacteria and human beings perform all the activities of life and live comfortably in their environments. They, therefore, seem

to be equally evolved. However, human beings have a far more complex organisation and differentiation which are absent in bacteria. Since complex

organisation and differentiation develop only through evolution, humans are far more evolved than bacteria.
