I'm not on Chapter 10 yet, but I'm interested to hear what this mistake could be.

Not tonight. :laugh:

Page 160 "As we've seen, each of these ear bones is derived from the gill arches: the stapes from the first arch, and the malleus and incus from the second arch."

Page 87 "The second arch forms the third small ear bone (stapes), a tiny throat bone, and most of the muscles that control facial expression."

In trying to find out whether or not the stapes comes from the second or first gill arch, I found a review of the book which also points out the error.

Unfortunately, however, a handful of minor errors have crept into an otherwise authoritative book. For example, although Shubin initially says (correctly) that the malleus and incus are derived from the first gill arch and the stapes from the second arch, later he gets it backward, saying that it's "the stapes from the first arch, and the malleus and incus from the second arch."

So much for being original ;-)
