The human race has an innate narcissistic curiosity about itself, and it is from these first terrestrial organsims that we as a species eventually arose. So it makes sense that this record is paid quite a bit of attention by researchers and enthusists alike.
These are the people who like to envision how it must have been back then. To have a giant sandstone continent, on whose coasts and in the shallow freshwater lakes, the first vertebrates decided to make a major life change and slowly adapted to life onshore.
From beginnings as fish with lungs to tetrapods with their
four limbs, the process of terrestrialization will never loose its popularity
with our own species.
