    Here are some attributes of prokaryotes and eukaryotes and relevant hypotheses
    regarding multicellular organism evolution.


    Multicellular organisms require more energy than
    prokaryotes as they contain much more cells with
    various functions.

    Prokaryotes have no internal cytoskeleton while
    eukaryotes do

    Having a cytoskeleton could provide a mean to ...
