Description
The first terrestrial vertebrates evolved a group of membranes to surround and protect developing embryos. The amnion is one such membrane, containing the amniotic fluid of developing reptiles, birds, and mammals. Amniote Origins, an integration of modern systematic methods with studies of functional and physiological processes, illustrates how studies of paleobiology can by illuminated by studies of neontology. Inspired by the prospect of integrating fields that have long been isolated from one another, Amionte Origins proves a thorough and interdisciplinary synthesis of one of the classic transitions of evolutionary history-the transition from aquatic to terrestrial life.
