A vertebrate is an animal that has a backbone and a skeleton. These are an animal of a large group distinguished by the possession of a backbone or spinal column, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fishes. This book reviews controversial topics such as the origin of chordates, punctuational evolutionary changes, and the nature of progress in evolution, providing analyses and comparisons of the homeostatic capacities and evolutionary potential of the various groups of vertebrates.
