From Evolution To Preservation of Fishes

Program:

Sunday, August 14, 2011 - 9:00pm

To understand the history of fish is to understand our own origins”. In fish evolution we see the origins of bone, the development of the first jaws and teeth, the first strong limbs, the first complex brains, the first lungs, the first ability to breath air and the example of copulation as a means of reproduction. It is no exaggeration to say the study of fossil fish is an exciting and dynamic field with surprising discoveries being made almost every year. Tonight on Inquiry we welcome JOHN A. LONG, Vice President of Research and Collections at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, author of many books including THE RISE OF FISHES: 500 MILLION YEARS OF EVOLUTION.

Inquiry welcomes back noted children’s book author MELISSA STEWART, who has written an ambitious wonderful series of books on ecology and animals for young readers to enjoy. Her latest book A PLACE FOR FISH looks at sharks, seahorses, trout and pike, what challenges they face and what children can do to help fish to continue to live. If you are concerned with educating your children or grandchildren about the environment and the creatures that live around us, be sure to listen!
