Item # 493090A

The phylum Chordata includes tunicates, sea lancelets, hagfish, and all familiar vertebrate animals. DVD explores how these seemingly diverse animals evolved and how the group is unified by 4 characteristic structures: hollow dorsal nerve chord, supportive notochord, gill slits, and post-anal tail. Milestones in vertebrate evolution are discussed, including improvements in swimming and feeding, evolution of paired fins and a primitive lung, movement onto land, and amniotic egg. Close-captioned.
