Book Description

Nearly one hundred and fifty years ago Agassiz, Thiolliere and Huxley distinguished the first fossil coelacanths, and later many more were recognized in rocks between 380 and 66 million years old. Exactly 100 years ago Woodward published the first review on these fishes. Fossils younger than 66 million years were never found, as if all coelacanths had become extinct at that time, very much like the dinosaurs. The bony structures in these fossil crossopterygians, especially their limbs, placed them close to the ancestor of the first amphibians and all other land vertebrates.
