Amphioxus PDFs

Cross references:  Amphioxus     Amphioxus Evolution   


    I think we can learn a lot by rooting our understanding of human psychology in the psychology of our ancient ancestor, the amphioxus.  Unfortunately, many of the links to the articles on the amphioxus are quite expensive for the general public.  Fortunately, the library at the local university has subscriptions to the expensive databases which allow me to use their computer to copy the PDFs onto my thumb drive for free.  I then use a screen capture program to copy the drawings.  
    I'm going to spend some time
copying the PDFs I find most interesting into this webpage so that they will be available for free to anyone who visits this site.  I'm hoping that this qualifies under the definition of "fair use".    
    The purple link is to the original article which is no longer available to the general public for free.  The green link is to the PDF which I was able to download at the local university library.
