Overview

March Onto Land: The Silurian Period to the Middle Triassic Epoch by Thom Holmes

March Onto Land: The Silurian Period to the Middle Triassic Epoch depicts life's migration from sea to land and the rise of terrestrial organisms. Following the first land plants and terrestrial invertebrates, animals with backbones began to venture out of the water and onto dry land. After establishing themselves in their new surroundings, terrestrial vertebrates grew in number to become the most important large-bodied organisms on the planet. When the Middle Triassic Epoch began, the evolutionary stage was set for the rise of many new and distinct creatures, including mammals and dinosaurs. This full-color volume explores the first vertebrate groups, such as early tetrapods, amphibians, and reptiles, and examines their move from water to earth.
