About this book

Renowned researchers summarize the current knowledge on ammonoid paleobiology. The book begins with a description of the systematic position of the Ammonoidea within the Cephalopoda, providing the phylogenetic framework for the rest of the book. Following discussions include soft- and hard-part morphology of ammonoids, rate of growth and ontogeny, and taphonomy and ecology. Closing chapters explore the distribution of ammonoids in time and space as well as their extinction at the end of the Cretaceous. With its diverse viewpoints and new material, this resource will benefit researchers and graduate students in paleontology, marine biology, and evolutionary biology.

Reviews

`Impressively documents the knowledge that has been gained of these extinct animals from their fossilized shells and other hard remains and from the kinds and ages of sedimentary rocks that now preserve them.'
Choice

`The most important collation on the subject available in print, and complements other conference volumes over the last twenty years...A major contribution to ammonoid literature for which the editors deserve much credit.'
The Quarterly Review of Biology, March 1998
