Ammonoid Paleobiology: From macroevolution to paleogeography


Klug, Christian; Korn, Dieter; De Baets, Kenneth; Kruta, Isabelle; Mapes, R H (2015). Ammonoid Paleobiology: From macroevolution to paleogeography. Zürich: Springer.

Abstract

This two-volume work is a testament to the abiding interest and human fascination with ammonites. We offer a new model to explain the morphogenesis of septa and the shell, we explore their habitats by the content of stable isotopes in their shells, we discuss the origin and later evolution of this important clade, and we deliver hypotheses on its demise. The Ammonoidea produced a great number of species that can be used in biostratigraphy and possibly, this is the macrofossil group
