      They've tinkered with the genes of fish, and turned their fins into proto-limbs. Before getting into the details of the new experiment, leap back with me million years ago. That's about the time that our early vertebrate ancestors--lamprey-like jawless fishes--evolved the first fins. By about million years ago, those fins had become bony. Though Shubin set up the argument that fins and limbs have the same basic genetic directions, a key part of Dahn’s research is actually looking for differences between hands and fins. These small changes will point to the ways that the “basic” fin .

      And that’s sort of what happened as fish made the move to land and fins evolved into limbs: those Hox-activating cells stayed put and shifted from making fin .   One fascinating theme in evo-devo is how fish fins evolved into tetrapod limbs. Studies by many scientists, including geneticists, mathematical biologists, and paleontologists, have led to the idea that fins and limbs are homologous organs; now it is the job of developmental biologists to integrate these data into a reliable scenario for the Cited by:

Pelvic or ventral fins are typically located below and behind the pectoral fins and are equivalent to the hindlimbs of tetrapods.

Divided into sections on evolution, development, and transformations, the book begins with a historical introduction to the study of fins and limbs and goes on to consider the evolution of limbs into wings as well as adaptations associated with specialized modes of Format: Paperback.

The publication of the multi-authored Fins into Limbs carries on where Gaining Ground ended: its three sections and 19 chapters explore almost every aspect of limb evolution and development.

The first section discusses evolutional history, skeletal changes in the fin-to-limb transition (obviously written before the publication of Tiktaalik Cited by: Long ago, fish fins evolved into the limbs of land vertebrates and tetrapods.

During this transition, some elements of the fin were carried over while new features developed. Lizard limbs, bird wings, and human arms and legs are therefore all evolutionary modifications of the original tetrapod Fins into limbs book.

The fins of lobe-finned fish differ from those of all other fish in that each is borne on a fleshy, lobelike, scaly stalk extending from the body.

Pectoral and pelvic fins have articulations resembling those of tetrapod limbs. These fins evolved into legs of the first tetrapod land vertebrates, amphibians. New research reveals that the limbs of the earliest four-legged vertebrates, dating back more than million years ago, were no more structurally diverse than the fins of their aquatic ancestors.
