Críticas: This book will be of broad general interest to vertebrate biologists, indispensable for vertebrate functional and evolutionary morphologists, and essential reading for the next generation of vertebrate organismal biologists. The editors have done an enormous service to the field by collecting these thorough, incisive papers. One feels extremely invigorated and excited about what might be done next. "Great Transformations "will exert a strong impact on research agendas. --Michael Alfaro, University of California, Los Angeles" A well-crafted, intelligent, and probing series of papers by leading experts addressing the latest advances in the big transformations in our evolutionary history. This book will enthral anyone interested in learning about the big changes in our deep, distant evolution from fishes to land animals, the origins of reptiles, birds, and mammals, and how cutting-edge multidisciplinary approaches are used to solve evolutionary problems. --John A. Long, president of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, vice president of the Royal Society of South Australia "author of "The Dawn of the Deed: The Prehistoric Origins of Sex" "" This book honors the great Farish A. Jenkins Jr., who studied macroevolutionary transitions in vertebrates by combining a wealth of data from fossils, dissections, experimental analyses of behavior, evolutionary data, and more to reconstruct major changes in form and function, with a strong biological focus. Jenkins was so innovative, so big-question-oriented, and so influential that a book dedicated to him and the kinds of questions in which he was interested is not just appropriate, but "essential." The book is timely, summarizing and giving new perspectives on the greatest transitions in vertebrate evolution. The questions are huge. The authors are simply the best in the field. A landmark work from a star-studded cast of scientists. --John Hutchinson, Royal Veterinary College, University of London" A broad yet in-depth look at some of the most radical and fascinating changes in vertebrate anatomy and biology over the course of their evolutionary history. With contributions from 35 authors, this book greatly benefits from a range of expertise and many years of scientific research. . . . "Great Transformations "is an engaging and thorough book explaining not only what we know about vertebrate evolution, but, perhaps more importantly, the evidence behind what we know. --Jordan Bestwick, University of Leicester "Palaeontology Newsletter "" "Great Transformations"" in Vertebrate Evolution" is a timely landmark work that presents new intellectual and methodological grounds to unravel long-standing questions in the evolution of vertebrates. I highly recommend this excellent volume to all who have been enchanted by the mysterious beauty of our vertebrate history. --Martin Kundrat, Comenius University, Slovakia "Systematic Biology "" Those who have taken a course in comparative anatomy might be forgiven for thinking that the evolution of tetrapods has been well understood for a long time. Textbooks confidently detail the saga of the change from fish to modern mammals, birds, and reptiles, with seemingly few gaps in the story.However, as this volume points out, there are still missing pieces in scientific knowledge, and much of what is known was discovered only recently. . . . This very valuable work would make an excellent text for an upper-level undergraduate or graduate course in vertebrate evolution. . . . Essential. --J. L.

Descripción The University of Chicago Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condición: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. How did flying birds evolve from running dinosaurs, terrestrial trotting tetrapods evolve from swimming fish, and whales return to swim in the sea? These are some of the great transformations in the 500-million-year history of vertebrate life. And with the aid of new techniques and approaches across a range of fields-work spanning multiple levels of biological organization from DNA sequences to organs and the physiology and ecology of whole organisms-we are now beginning to unravel the confounding evolutionary mysteries contained in the structure, genes, and fossil record of every living species. This book gathers a diverse team of renowned scientists to capture the excitement of these new discoveries in a collection that is both accessible to students and an important contribution to the future of its field. Marshaling a range of disciplines-from paleobiology to phylogenetics, developmental biology, ecology, and evolutionary biology-the contributors attack particular transformations in the head and neck, trunk, appendages such as fins and limbs, and the whole body, as well as offer synthetic perspectives. Illustrated throughout, Great Transformations in Vertebrate Evolution not only reveals the true origins of whales with legs, fish with elbows, wrists, and necks, and feathered dinosaurs, but also the relevance to our lives today of these extraordinary narratives of change.
