"Hydrogenosomes and Mitosomes: Mitochondria of Anaerobic Eukaryotes" provides a summary of the current knowledge of these organelles which occur in unicellular, often parasitic organisms, including human pathogens. These organelles exhibit a variety of structures and functions. This work describes properties such as protein import, structure, metabolism, adaptation, proteome and their role in drug activation and resistance. Further topics include organelle evolution and biogenesis.

Compares the biogenesis, structure, and function of various type of mitochondria in distinct eukaryotic lineages

Provides new a new perspective on mitochondria origin and the evolution of eukaryotic cells

Investigates the constraints that led to the reduction of mitochondria in parasitic protists , furthering our understanding of the evolution of parasitism
