Evolution of the inner ear: Insights from jawless fish

Les poissons placodermes du Spitsberg. The excellent summary presented by Richard Dawkinspp. New York: The Modern Library, Random House; 1859. Thus, this volume is totally unique, and takes a perspective that has never been taken before. Nowhere else in the vertebrate skeleton are different functional units packed so close together and jointly embedded in its skeletal environment, which also hampers the independent evolution of the ear components.

Book Subtitle Evidence from the Fossil Record• In an elegant computer-modeling program, involving simulation of minor modifications to improve optical performance starting from this basic arrangement, and using very conservative estimates of heritability and population variation, Nilsson and Pelger showed that to elaborate from a flat light-sensitive patch, through a cup-shaped invagination, to a camera-style eye, complete with graded lens similar to that of a fish, could be achieved in about 364,000 generations.
