Virtual Palaeontology Issue 2: Ammonoid Palaeobiology

Read here!

This, the second in the series of virtual issues of Palaeontology, charts the development of concepts in ammonoid palaeobiology, with reference to nine selected papers published in this journal from 1965 onwards. These cover a broad range of topics: goniatite bed palaeoecology, systematics and evolution in Scaphites, flow dynamics of cephalopod shells, shell growth and differential geometry, septal function, ammonoid assemblage analysis, evolutionary trends, stratocladistics, and soft part preservation.

Virtual Palaeontology Issue 1: Origins of Biodiversity

Read here!

This is the first of a series of virtual issues of Palaeontology, in which we present selections of articles published over the long history of the journal, since 1957. Palaeontology is frequently seen as a journal that is focused only on presenting descriptions and systematic accounts of fossils, but it has also been the venue for articles on wider topics, across themes in macroevolution, palaeoecology, functional morphology and taphonomy, for example.

About

Palaeontology is now integrated with Dryad, meaning that authors, upon submission, will be given the opportunity to create a data record on Dryad.

Data are important products of the scientific enterprise, and they should be preserved and usable for decades in the future.
