The mollusc collection in Frankfurt am Main consists of both Recent and fossil Tertiary molluscs and is one of the world’s major research collections. Compared to the osteological record of herbivorous dinosaurs from the Late Cretaceous Prince Creek Formation of northern Alaska, there are relatively fewer remains of theropods. The theropod record from this unit is mostly comprised of isolated teeth, and the only non-dental remains known can be attributed to the troodontid cf. Troodon and the tyrannosaurid Nanuqsaurus. Thus far, the presence.
In a structured assemblage, the mean numbers of units in a single block should be significantly higher than the score expected by chance, according to a null model –.The number of units in a single block for any pair of species is calculated by: CU = (r i –S) (r j –S), where r i and r j correspond to the totals in a row, and S is the number of sites occupied by both species. D, gastropod shell showing geopetal infilling (sample NHMW //). E, echinoid spine, documenting a marine environment (sample NHMW //). F, G, ‘black pebbles’, dark-brown stained carbonate extraclasts, fossil in F is Cayeuxia sp. (sample NHMW //).
There are publicly accessible projects as of August 2, in MorphoBank. Publicly available projects contain , images and matrices. Introduction. The evolution and diversification of metriorhynchid crocodylomorphs in the Mesozoic seas is a classic example of an evolutionary radiation in the fossil record,.Metriorhynchids are highly aberrant compared to other crocodylomorphs (which are terrestrial or semi-aquatic), and evolved numerous adaptations to their pelagic lifestyle, including a complete loss of their osteoderm.

Taxonomy and palaeobiology of the largest‐ever marsupial, Diprotodon Owen, (Diprotodontidae, Marsupialia) Article in Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society (2) June ) fossil plants may be treated as morphotaxa—a fossil taxon that, for nomenclatural purposes, comprises only the parts, life-history stages or preservational states rep.

Here we revise the taxonomy and palaeobiology of the bivalve superfamily Etherioidea from this region and discuss some palaeohydrological implications. In the Iridininae (Mutela, Pleiodon), the. “Palaeobiology & Geobiology of Fossil Lagerstätten through Earth History” – Göttingen, Abstracts.
A reinvestigation of some historic specimens together with several newly discovered. strobili composed of B. inopinata from Pechgraben near Bayreuth (Germany) provide new insights into the morphology of this enigmatic fossil.
Bernettia. In the bivalve classification of Bieler et al. (), they list Limida Moore, This is not in their reference list, but there is a Moore et al. () "Invertebrate Fossils". Palaeontologists received a considerable boost in the s with the publication of the theory of evolution by punctuated equilibria 3, 4, an idea that could only be tested using the fossil record, and which attracted many evolutionists and ‘phyletic gradualism’ viewpoint assumes that evolving lineages change at variable rates (Fig.
1a), but more or less continuously. Figure 1: Morphological Evidence Supporting a New Orangutan Species (A) Current distribution of Pongo tapanuliensis on holotype locality is marked with a red star.

Most of the fossil remains of the Kanapoi Formation have been obtained from deposits between the lower pumiceous tuff and the Kanapoi tuff, including remains of Australopithecus anamensis Leakey, (Leakey et al.,Leakey et al.,Ward et al., ).Freshwater mollusks have only been obtained from sediments above the upper pumiceous tuff.
These are a few of the pdf files (and a few Microsoft Word documents) that I've accumulated in my web browsing. MOST of these are hyperlinked to their source. If you want one that is not hyperlinked or if the link isn't working, e-mail me at [email protected] and I'll be happy to send it to you.
Please note that this list will be updated continuously as I find more available resources. Figure 3 shows an example of one gastropod species (see FOSSIL INVERTEBRATES | Gastropods) changing or replacing another in an ancestor-descendent sequence (gradual speciation by anagenesis) by a shift in the modal shell form as measured by morphometric discriminant this example the gradual change has been correlated with increasing depth of water.
Sauropoda (/ s ɔː ˈ r ɒ p ə d ə / or / ˌ s ɔːr ə ˈ p oʊ d ə /), or the sauropods (/ ˈ s ɔːr ə p ɒ d z /; sauro-+ -pod, "lizard-footed"), are a clade of saurischian ("lizard-hipped") had very long necks, long tails, small heads (relative to the rest of their body), and four thick, pillar-like legs.
They are notable for the enormous sizes attained by some species. Some species are vectors of parasites which cause severe human diseases. Fossil shells are used to determin the stratigraphic age of rocks and to reconstruce of past ecosystems and climate.
Pollution and habitat destruction threaten many mollusc, especially terrestrial gastropods and freshwater bivalves that are in danger of extinction and need. Introduction.
For fossil decapod crustaceans, a limited number of specimens are typically available for study because of their limited preservation potential compared to other marine invertebrates (e.g.
Kidwell & Flessa ; Foote & Sepkoski ; Stempien ).As a result, the systematics of fossil decapods is typically based on qualitative or marginally quantitative descriptions.

Ankylorhiza tiedemani is a large ( mm bizygomatic width; body length est. m) stem odontocete with limited polydonty (10 postcanine teeth) and moderate rhiza differs from all other odontocetes in the extreme development of nuchal crests and differs from all other stem odontocetes in its larger size and combination of derived (mostly single-rooted teeth.
Based on both modern and fossil record observations, it appears that gastropods in the Early Triassic evolved in response to extreme extrinsic conditions. Payne () found evidence for size selectivity at the end-Permian mass extinction including a significant decrease in mean and maximum gastropod body size (but see Brayard et al., ).
Tiganophyton karasense, an evergreen dwarf shrub, is described as a new species.A new genus and family are also proposed for it in the order Brassicales. Phylogenetic analysis of DNA sequence data indicate that Tiganophyton is sister to Bataceae/Salvadoraceae, and all three sister to realized to be undescribed inT.
karasense is a rare species known only. A second specimen, SHN, corresponding to some axial and appendicular elements of a large-sized individual, from upper Tithonian strata in the same geographic area, is tentatively proposed as referred material.
Also, an isolated femur previously tentatively assigned to Lourinhanosaurus antunesi is interpreted as belonging to a. In addition to soft-bodied animals, some arthropods may not be preserved because their exoskeletons are not calcified unlike in bivalves, gastropods, or brachiopods.
Supporting such a view is the nature of the feeding strategies unique to the Early Triassic, namely demersal suction feeding in Cartorhynchus and lunge feeding in Hupehsuchia. Both. We found that central Chinese L. mandelli differed from those from India through northern Southeast Asia to southeast China in plumage, morphometrics and were easily classified by song, and (wing + culmen)/tail ratio overlapped only marginally.
Both groups were reciprocally monophyletic in a mitochondrial cytochrome b (cytb) gene tree, with a mean divergence of ± %.Malacology is the scientific study of molluscs (phylum Mollusca), the most diverse living group of animals.
The Malacology Section of the Senckenberg Research Institute Frankfurt am Main belongs to the Department of Marine Zoology.Analysis of morphological disparity can overcome some of the sampling bias of the fossil record (Wills ); it also compliments patterns of taxonomic diversity.
By focusing on shape differences, morphologic disparity is relatively independent of taxonomy; it allows comparison of samples in which a variable proportion of taxa are preserved or.
