The fourth stage was the evolution of mechanisms that allowed cells to adjust their biochemistry to different, and often changing, environments. Organisms with these capabilities could form colonies comprising groups of interacting cells, and some eventually evolved into complex multicellular organisms. This chapter introduces key challenges posed in the evolution of life, whose solutions are elaborated in later chapters. Exploring a possible evolutionary origin for these fundamental processes makes their use, in contrast with that of potential alternatives, more understandable.

The dielectric constant of water is unusually high because of its polarity and capacity to form oriented solvent shells around ions. These oriented solvent shells produce electric fields of their own, which oppose the fields produced by the ions. Consequently, the presence of water markedly weakens electrostatic interactions between ions. The existence of life on Earth depends critically on the capacity of water to dissolve a remarkable array of polar molecules that serve as fuels, building blocks, catalysts, and information carriers.

The positions of the partial charges (δ+ and δ-) are shown. Hydrogen bonds are much weaker than covalent bonds. They have energies of 1-3 kcal mol-1 (4-13 kJ mol-1) compared with approximately 100 kcal mol-1 (418 kJ mol-1) for a carbon-hydrogen covalent bond. 5 Å separate the two nonhydrogen atoms in a hydrogen bond. The strongest hydrogen bonds have a tendency to be approximately straight, such that the hydrogen-bond donor, the hydrogen atom, and the hydrogen-bond acceptor lie along a straight line.
