By S. V. Boletzky (auth.), Federico Olóriz, Francisco J. Rodríguez-Tovar (eds.)

Relying at the most modern analytical thoughts, this all-embracing new reference bargains accomplished insurance of the improvement, evolution, and morphology of either fossil and dwelling cephalopods. In 34 in-depth chapters a bunch of fifty one overseas neontologists and peleontologists provide and opverview of present equipment, info, analyses, and interpretations, and posit feedback for destiny learn.
With its remarkable mix of pleasant contributions on dwelling and fossil cephalopods, this booklet presents researchers and complex scholars in paleontology, invertebrate zoology, evolutionary biology, and allied disciplines with a trove of contemporary facts and authoritative interpretations that might immeasurably gain their very own studies.

It is this material from P-23 and the new locality that form the basis of our ultrastructural study. By subjective analysis of the similarities of larger morphological characteristics, the holotype and other described material of Mapes (1979) are re-assigned to Shimanskya postremus (Miller). 3. METHODS: SHELL WALL ULTRASTRUCTURE A number of observations should be considered in the reassignment of Bactrites postremus from the Bactritoidea to the Spirulida. 1. Shimanskya ("Bactrites") postremus Scanning-electron-microscopy observations of the original unaltered shell wall structures in Shimanskya postremus demonstrates that the shell wall is composed of two distinctly separated prismatic layers; no nacreous layer appears to be present.

(B) Median cross-section through the same specimen showing the initial chamber (IC), flange (F), first septum or proseptum (I), septa 2-5, caecum (C), prosiphon (P), siphuncle (S), primary constriction (PC), primary varix (PV), and ammonitella edge (AE). ) narrowing called the primary constriction. In most Mesozoic and phylogenetically advanced Paleozoic ammonoids, this constriction is accompanied by a thickening of the shell called the primary varix.
