Tube structure and ultrastructure of serpulids from the Jurassic of France and Switzerland, its evolutionary implications


Vinn, O; Furrer, H (2008). Tube structure and ultrastructure of serpulids from the Jurassic of France and Switzerland, its evolutionary implications. Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie, 250(2):129-135.

Abstract

Four different tube ultrastructures were identified in the eight studied Jurassic serpulid species. The simple prismatic structure of single layered Serpula aff. convoluta and Tetraserpula planorbiformis, and the spherulitic prismatic structure of outer tube layer in S. aff. trigona are interpreted as the original tube ultrastructures. The fine homogeneous granular structure in Mucroserpula quinquangularis, Serpula conformis, S. limata, S. aff. subcrispa, S. aff. trigona and coarse angular crystal homogeneous structure in Filogranula tricristata are interpreted as diagenetically altered structures. The diagenetically altered tube ultrastructure is common in the Jurassic serpulids, which can be explained by their original aragonitic or dominantly aragonitic composition. There is no evidence of complex oriented tube ultrastructures in the Jurassic, such as calcitic lamello-fibrillar structure, which may have evolved later in the Cretaceous or early Cenozoic.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
