Your inner fish : a journey into the 3.5-billion-year history of the human body by Neil Shubin( Book )

31 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neil Shubin, a leading paleontologist and professor of anatomy who discovered Tiktaalik--the "missing link" that made headlines around the world in April 2006--tells the story of evolution by tracing the organs of the human body back millions of years, long before the first creatures walked the earth. By examining fossils and DNA, Shubin shows us that our hands actually resemble fish fins, our head is organized like that of a long-extinct jawless fish, and major parts of our genome look and function like those of worms and bacteria.--From publisher description

Your Inner Fish by Neil Shubin( Visual )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the many ways that our animal ancestors shaped our anatomical destiny. Using both the fossil record and DNA evidence, traces various parts of the human body's structure to creatures that lived long, long, ago
Great transformations in vertebrate evolution by Kenneth Paul Dial( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did flying birds evolve from running dinosaurs, terrestrial trotting tetrapods evolve from swimming fish, and whales return to swim in the sea? These are some of the great transformations in the 500-million-year history of vertebrate life. And with the aid of new techniques and approaches across a range of fields - work spanning multiple levels of biological organization from DNA sequences to organs and the physiology and ecology of whole organisms - we are now beginning to unravel the confounding evolutionary mysteries contained in the structure, genes, and fossil record of every living species. This book gathers a diverse team of renowned scientists to capture the excitement of these new discoveries in a collection that is both accessible to students and an important contribution to the future of its field. Marshaling a range of disciplines - from paleobiology to phylogenetics, developmental biology, ecology, and evolutionary biology - the contributors attack particular transformations in the head and neck, trunk, appendages such as fins and limbs, and the whole body, as well as offer synthetic perspectives. -- from back cover
Your Inner Monkey( Visual )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Have you ever wondered why our bodies look the way they do? In this three part series, paleobiologist Neil Shubin sets out to find the answers in a surprising place: the ancient animal ancestors that shaped our anatomy. In Your Inner Monkey, he travels from Ethiopia to Florida to explain how we inherited our versatile hands, amazing vision and capable brains from our primate progenitors - but also some less beneficial traits, including our bad backs and terrible sense of smell. Shubin concludes by tracing the evolution of the human brain - from a tiny swelling on the nerve cord of a wormlike creature, to the three-part architecture of a shark's brain and the complex brain of primates
Your Inner Reptile( Visual )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our primate progenitors had bodies a lot like those of modern monkeys and spent tens of millions of years living in trees. From them we inherited our versatile hands, amazing vision and capable brains - but also some less beneficial traits, including our bad backs and terrible sense of smell. Find out which beneficial traits-and some less useful ones-our primate progenitors bequeathed us
The universe within : [discovering the common history of rocks, planets, and people] by Neil Shubin( Recording )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neil Shubin takes an even more expansive approach to the question of why we are the way we are. Starting once again with fossils, Shubin turns his gaze skyward. He shows how the entirety of the universe's 14-billion-year history can be seen in our bodies. From our very molecular composition (a result of stellar events at the origin of our solar system), he makes clear, through the working of our eyes, how the evolution of the cosmos has had profound effects on the development of human life on earth
Your inner fish : [a journey into the 3.5-billion-year history of the human body] by Neil Shubin( Recording )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our arms, legs, necks and lungs were bequeathed to us by a fish that lumbered onto land some 375 million years ago. The genetic legacy of this creature can be seen today in our own DNA, including the genes used to build our hands and limbs. See how the genetic legacy of a fish can be seen today in our own DNA

A key moment in our evolutionary saga occurred 200 million years ago, when the ferocious reptile-like animals that roamed the Earth were in the process of evolving into shrew-like mammals. But our reptilian ancestors left their mark on many parts of the human body, including our skin, teeth and ears. Learn which parts of our bodies we've inherited from our reptilian ancestors

Your inner fish : the amazing discovery of our 375-million-year-old ancestor by Neil Shubin( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Have you ever wondered why our bodies look and work and fail the way they do? One of the world's leading experts in evolutionary history, Neil Shubin reveals that if we want to understand our limbs we should take a close look at Tiktaalik, the first fish capable of doing a push-up; that if we want to know why we hiccup, the answer is in the way fish breathe; and explains why it is that fish teeth are surprisingly similar to human breasts. Your Inner Fish is the unexpected story of human body and of our long journey out of the water."--Global Books in Print
