Descripción

xxiv, 247 pp; 32 plates. Original cloth. Near Fine, without dust jacket. 'Horses, one of the prime keys to evolution in the fossil world (as Drosophila has been to neobiology), inevitably became a target of [Simpson's] evolutionary interests. He even went beyond his evolutionary interest to study horses in modern times and as a factor in human history' (Everett C. Olson, Biographical Memoirs, National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 60, 1991). '[C]lassic work . . . included a wealth of information about the equid lineage, with chapters on modern breeds and fossil species and on the evolution of teeth, skulls, and limbs and feet' (John W. Hermanson, review of H.-D. Sues' Evolution of Herbivory in Terrestrial Vertebrates: Perspectives from the Fossil Record, for Journal of Mammalogy, Vol. 82, No. 4, Nov., 2001, pp. 1124-6). 'As horses underwent adaptive radiation they became exposed to new types of environmental opportunities involving both new kinds of food and new terrain. The changes in the position of the eye and in the structure of the foot and of other physical characteristics have been described in a fascinating way by Simpson in his book Horses' (Christian Anfinsen, The Molecular Basis of Evolution, 1959, p. 10).
