Often, prokaryotic cells exist as simple unicellular organisms, but in some species, prokaryotic cells can grow together in colonies or filaments. In addition, some species, such as Cynaobacteria or Myxobacteria, demonstrate intercellular communication, or might even produce specialized cells and structures. However, only eukaryotic cells form the bodies of multicellular organisms with complex internal specialization. Develop one or two hypotheses explaining why only eukaryotic cells are found in multicellular organisms.

Only eukaryotic cells form the bodies of multicellular organisms with complex internal specialization. Why is this so? Think about it. Larger cell types can specialize. Smaller cell types can't specialize as much. ...
