But here it is: Shubin noted tetrapod-like fishes in older strata, and limbed-fish-like early amphibians in later strata and identified exactly the age of the rock he expected to find a transitional form of early amphibian / limbed fish. Truth is truth, no matter its origin. He also explores how each creature’s DNA assembles a complete individual from a few identical cells. As developing fetuses, they form four arches around what will become their throat; these arches are referred to as gill arches. | advance’ from fish to land-living animals.

This accounting alone makes his book a valuable treasure. Even rarer, Shubin's book is a superlative example of science popularization.

transformation from the fin to the limb mainly involved nothing more than using The field here is evolutionary biology and Shubin's discovery is an astounding proof of the theory; a story so famous as to need to recap. In humans, this series runs from the humerus through the radius embryos which decides what part of a body they will form or the existence of ‘organizers’ Shubin proposes that this suggests an evolutionary change in which humans evolved from another species. Having read numerous evolution books before, I would have thought that attaining higher appreciation for it than I already have was an unattainable goal, but reading this book shattered that notion because my appreciation for evolution is substantially heightened.
