Editorial Reviews


Henry Gee has admirably mastered a formidable library of scattered reference to bring this timely book together...Palaeontologists, zoologists and geneticists should read this book and learn from it. - Endeavour
The book is a true mine of information. - Ethology Ecology & Evolution
Before the Backbone is certainly a valuable addition to my bookshelf, and I commend it to all of those interested in vertebrates in particular or in metazoan phylogeny as a whole. - Geological Magazine
