There is some fascinating material in Major Transitions and serious students of evolution won't want to miss it, but I would recommend more focused alternatives first, perhaps (from recent reading) Gerhart and Kirschner's Cells, Embryos, and Evolution, Carroll's Patterns and Processes in Vertebrate Evolution, or Dyson's Origins of Life.

Major Transitions in Vertebrate Evolution, edited by Jason S. Anderson and Hans-Dieter Sues, has its origins in a symposium at the Society of Verte- brate Paleontology meeting in St. Paul, Minnesota. Thus, unsurprisingly, it is a fairly technical volume aimed at the specialist audience, and assumes a fairly strong background in vertebrate /5(4).

This course provides a comprehensive survey of the origin and evolution of vertebrates through an examination of the fossil record. A primary focus will be on major events in Earth’s evolutionary history, with an emphasis on anatomical and physiological transformations in fish.

Great Transformations in Vertebrate Evolution is a challenge to those narratives and chapter after chapter reveals that life is not linear but full of unpredictable episodes of convergence, reversal to ancestral states, and much more intricate pictures of the patterns and processes of evolution This book demonstrates that great.
