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.
The specimen has been acid-etched from limestone to reveal preserved braincase structure in the form of perichondral bone layers specimen illustrated by Goujet and Young. In order to understand the evolutionary changes that led three canals, the team looked at the only two types of jawless vertebrates that still exist on earth: and hagfish. the process involving deposition of mineralized hard tissue in the form of calcium phosphate, secreted by specialised bone-forming cells osteocytes osteichthyans the second major group of living fishes, differing from sharks and rays see chondrichthyans in possessing a complete bony skeleton.
However, the type of fossil preservation discussed in this article is largely unmentioned in general textbooks or more popular books on evolution.
Tightly encapsulated within the densest bone of the skeleton, it comprises the smallest elements of the vertebrate skeleton auditory ossicles and gives rise to several different senses: balance, posture control, gaze stabilization, and hearing.
Another unique condition of placoderm fishes is a subdivision of the braincase into two separate ossifications at the level of the optic nerve.
