New discoveries of ancient vertebrates, filling in gaps in the fossil record, are quickly eroding the traditionally recognized differences between the principal groups of vertebrates-for example, between dinosaurs and birds-and radically changing our understanding of the evolutionary history of the major group of animals to which our species belongs. This book describes this changing scientific landscape and contributes to the revolution in our knowledge of the developmental mechanisms that underlie evolutionary transformation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
. . . This book is an outstanding contribution to evolutionary biology and paleontology. . . . Essential. * Choice *
...the volume as a whole offers a good deal more than just overviews of new fossils, namely a window into the contemporary Zeitgeist of vertebrate palaeontology itself... Major Transitions in Vertebrate Evolution reviews the rapidly growing knowledge in several of the most pertinent cases, and it also epitomises much that is good about the present state of the art.157 2009 -- T.S. Kemp * Zoological Jrnl Linnean Society *
[This] book is a fine snapshot of current research on vertebrate macroevolution. 2010 No. 31 * The Systematist *
. . . this is a useful volume - the individual chapters offer a combination of reviews and important new data that will interest an audience that should extend beyond vertebratepalaeontology to zoologists and evolutionary biologists.2009 -- Paul M. Barrett * Geological Magazine *
