This artist ′ s reconstruction depicts a diverse array of organisms represented in fossils from the Burgess Shale site in British Columbia, Canada. Phylogenetic tree based on morphology and DNA of Living Vertebrates ( Figure 34.7 ). It is in agreement with Fossil Data. The earliest vertebrates lived in the ocean about 530 million years ago and had endoskeletons made of cartilage —a stiff tissue that consists of scattered cells in a gel-like matrix of polysaccharides and protein Fbers. Jawless fossil vertebrates (now extinct) from 480 million years ago were the first fossils to contain bone in the form of an exoskeleton enveloping the body. Vertebrates could not harvest food by biting until jaws evolved. Jaw evolved from anterior gill arches. ( Figure 34.10 ). Jaws were a big hit - almost all living vertebrates have them! Relative Species Abundance Among Vertebrates (Lobe-finned Fishes not Shown) Ray-fnned fshes Their fns are webs oF skin supported by bony spines ("rays"). Lobe-Finned Fishes- very common in the fossil record (see Devonian example below on right). Their feshy ¡ns share homologous bones and muscles with tetrapods....
