Osteolepiforms and the ancestry of tetrapods
Fossil discoveries and improved phylogenies, have greatly improved our understanding of the origin of tetrapods, making it possible to reconstruct sequences of character change leading to tetrapodExpand

Second tristichopterid (Sarcopterygii, Osteolepiformes) from the Upper Devonian of Canowindra, New South Wales, Australia, and phylogeny of the Tristichopteridae
ABSTRACT A new tristichopterid, Cabonnichthys burnsi gen. et sp. nov. from the Upper Devonian Mandagery Sandstone near Canowindra, New South Wales, Australia, is the second tristichopterid to beExpand

Fish fingers: digit homologues in sarcopterygian fish fins.
A defining feature of tetrapod evolutionary origins is the transition from fish fins to tetrapod limbs. A major change during this transition is the appearance of the autopod (hands, feet), whichExpand

Evolution and development of the vertebrate neck
Muscles of the vertebrate neck include the cucullaris and hypobranchials. Although a functional neck first evolved in the lobe‐finned fishes (Sarcopterygii) with the separation of theExpand

Origin and evolution of gnathostome dentitions: a question of teeth and pharyngeal denticles in placoderms
The fossil group Placodermi is the most phylogenetically basal of the clade of jawed vertebrates but lacks a marginal dentition comparable to that of the dentate Chondrichthyes, Acanthodii andExpand

REDESCRIPTION OF THE PECTORAL FIN AND VERTEBRAL COLUMN OF THE RHIZODONTID FISH BARAMEDA DECIPIENS FROM THE LOWER CARBONIFEROUS OF AUSTRALIA
Abstract The original description of the pectoral fin of the rhizodontid Barameda decipiens emphasized the narrowness of the fin, based on a narrow radius and low number of preserved lepidotrichia.Expand

Separate Evolutionary Origins of Teeth from Evidence in Fossil Jawed Vertebrates
Placoderms are extinct jawed fishes of the class Placodermi and are basal among jawed vertebrates. It is generally thought that teeth are absent in placoderms and that the phylogenetic origin ofExpand
