Lecture no. 24 from the course: A New History of Life
Taught by Professor Stuart Sutherland | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Search for the origin of amniotes, which are egg-laying tetrapods, such as reptiles. Delve into the history of classification systems for life. The Linnaean system is based on resemblances between organisms. Learn why the more recent cladistic system, based on shared characteristics, implies that there is no such thing as a reptile.
