Virtual Palaeontology Issue 4: Arthropod Papers of Enduring Influence
Palaeontology has published many papers that deserve to have a long citation life. Unlike many of the physical sciences, work done well in palaeontology continues to be the source of data for subsequent hypotheses, while past reviews offer new students the chance to build their expertise with confidence – eventually to discover the flaws that serve to advance the science. Richard Fortey's list includes papers on trilobites in particular, but with a reference to a paper that has contributed to the larger question of how the trilobites sit within the Arthropoda as a whole.
