From Fish to 4-Limbed Animals

Lecture no. 10 from the course: Major Transitions in Evolution

From Fish to 4-Limbed Animals

Taught by Professor Anthony Martin and 1 others | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

The canopies provided by early forests gave vertebrates new opportunities to get out of the water and start moving around on land. Learn how all four-limbed vertebrates (tetrapods) owe their evolutionary origins to lobe-finned fish that started this transition about 380 million years ago.
