Milestones of Vertebrate Evolution Poster

Vertebrate Evolution Chart

A105 Milestones of Vertebrate Evolution
    This incredible poster presents a tremendous amount of information in an easily understandable way. Along the left edge, the major milestones (physical developments) of vertebrate evolution are shown and described. The main design is an “Evolution Tree” superimposed over the geological time scale. (See page 8.) The milestones are marked on it to show the resulting animal clades. The beginning and end of each branch shows when they lived; the thickness of the branch indicates their relative abundance or scarcity during each geological period. 119 species are shown, all in the proper geological period. This makes it easy to see which animals lived at the same time. Interesting insets explain everything.
Laminated No. A105L $18.95

Poster Details

amniote egg     This exciting new poster provides a comprehensive overview of vertebrate evolution in accordance with the new cladistics system, which it introduces. The most important evolved characteristics are shown and explained as the "Milestones of Vertebrate Evolution."
   These provide the foundation for grouping similar animals together into "clades,." 
       The Evolution Tree is superimposed over a geological time chart. The branches show how milestones resulted in new groups of animals.  The position of the branches shows how animals are related.  The beginning, end and length of each branch shows when they lived, and, the thickness of branches provides a symbolic representation of the relative abundance or scarcity of those animals during each period of geological time.

   Insets provide a wealth of additional information about related subjects. These include an introduction to geological time, the dangers of unchecked evolution, the impact of mass extinctions, adaptive radiation and how various types of animals dominated the earth at various times. The evolution tree dramatically shows the impact of the mass extinctions and the animals that radiated as a result of them.
    This posters shows around 116 different species positioned to show the results of evolutionary milestones.  Collectively they provide an incredible overview of the diversity of prehistoric animals. The linage of each group can be followed forward or backward in time. 
The design makes it easy to see the mix of animals that lived at various times. 
   
Dr. Robert Reisz, vertebrate paleontology at the University of Toronto is a pioneer in cladistics.  He was the consultant on this poster, along with Alan Kazlev, webmaster of palaeo.com.

Three poster Set

 Animal Development, Milestones of Evolution and our new Animal Kingdom poster are designed to be used both individually and together.  Animal Development focuses on the invertebrates and Milestones of Vertebrate Evolution picks up where it leaves off.  Both show how the various clades evolved; Animal Kingdom show the results. Teachers, students and professionals will find them to be an invaluable reference. All are listed on the menu at left.
