Klug, Christian; Hoffmann, René (2015). Ammonoid Septa and Sutures. In: Klug, Christian; Korn, Dieter; De Baets, Kenneth; Kruta, Isabelle; Mapes, Royal H. Ammonoid Paleobiology: From anatomy to ecology. Dordrecht: Springer, 45-90.

Abstract

Introduction: Comparable to the conch of extant Nautilus, the ectocochleate ammonite conch is divided into two main parts: the most apertural (anterior) undivided body chamber, which contains the majority of the soft body of the living animal, and the apical posterior) chambered phragmocone. Both are separated from each other by the latest septum. From the last septum to its earliest (embryonic) part (the protoconch), the phragmocone was internally divided in chambers by aragonitic septa. All chambers are connected by the siphuncle, which extends from the protoconch (initial chamber).
