More than three hundred million years ago, vertebrate animals first ventured onto land. This title describes how some finned vertebrates acquired limbs, giving rise to more than 25,000 extant tetrapod species. The author uses paleontological, geological, physiological and comparative anatomical data to describe this monumental event. Also discusses the evolutionary pressures that may have led to vertebrates venturing onto dry land.
