Oldest humerus found
Some nice work by Neil Shubin and Ted Daeschler on an early humerus
of an amphibian that could push its body up, but couldn't walk. I
have a report up at
and the paper is in Science.
It looks like the evolutionary "tree" for ancestral amphibians was as
shrubby as the transition from bird to dinosaur, with lots of
evolutionary experiments going on simultaneously.
