    There is some inversion here:
    "and [all other vertebrates evolved from them]" can be changed to "and from them evolved all other vertebrates"

    Another example of this:
    My mother is the funniest person I know and from her I inherited my own crazy sense of humour!
    OR
    My mother is the funniest person I know and I inherited my own crazy sense of humour from her!
