Amphioxus and the Ancestry, of the Vertebrates

Excerpt from Amphioxus and the Ancestry, of the Vertebrates This volume originated in a course of University lectures prepared at my suggestion by the author. It seemed important that he should bring within the reach of students and of specialists among other groups, his own extensive observations upon Amphioxus and other remote ancestors of the Vertebrates, as well as the general literature upon this group. While our detailed knowledge of the structure and habits of these animals has been rapidly increasing in recent years, it is still in the main very widely scattered in monographs and special papers. Probably no single group illustrates more beautifully the principles of transformism; for the Protochordates in their embryonic development exhibit remarkable reminiscences of past adaptations, and, in their adult development, the most varied present adaptations to pelagic, deep-sea, littoral, free-swimming, and sessile life. As Lankester has shown, the Ascidians alone give us a whole chapter in Darwinism. But degeneration and change of function constitute only one side of their history.
