Hi!
For most of people yeasts are Sac. cerevisiae.
For most of yeastists yeasts are the fungi with single cells stage of 
development. But Mucor spp. can give us such kind of cells in condition 
without O2 as well.  
So, how do you think about "what are yeast" and "their origin"?

    origin of yeasts:
          / ...                    / fungi1             / yeasts
    Fungi - ...        or    yeast - fungi2     or    X - fungi
          \ yeasts                 \ fungi...           \ ...

    or ...

Have a nice day!
