  1. 1. Decoding the fossil record of early lophophorates Systematics and phylogeny of problematic Cambrian Lophotrochozoa

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Aodhán D. Butler; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Brachiopoda; Chengjiang; Lagerstätte; Cambrian Explosion; palaeobiology; stem-group; entoproct; phoronid; tommotiid; exceptional preservation; Earth Science with specialization in Historical Geology and Palaeontology; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot historisk geologi och paleontologi;

    Sammanfattning : The evolutionary origins of animal phyla are intimately linked with the Cambrian explosion, a period of radical ecological and evolutionary innovation that begins approximately 540 Mya and continues for some 20 million years, during which most major animal groups appear. Lophotrochozoa, a major group of protostome animals that includes molluscs, annelids and brachiopods, represent a significant component of the oldest known fossil records of biomineralised animals, as disclosed by the enigmatic ‘small shelly fossil’ faunas of the early Cambrian.

  2. 2. Origin and Lifestyles of early Brachiopods and other Lophotrochozoans Insights from the Chengjiang and Guanshan Fossil-Lagerstätten

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Haizhou Wang; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cambrian Explosion; Chengjiang; Guanshan; Lagerstätten; Lophotrochozoa; Brachiopoda; Earth Science with specialization in Historical Geology and Palaeontology; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot historisk geologi och paleontologi;

    Sammanfattning : One of the great unsolved evolutionary questions concerns the origin and phylogeny of the major animal phyla that appeared in the fossil record more than 540 million years ago, during the Cambrian explosion. Although new molecular information has been very useful, we still have little understanding about the origin of most of the phyla of bilaterians living today. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The Cambrian lophotrochozoans of the Transantarctic Mountains, Antarctica

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Uppsala universitet

    Författare :Lewis Bassett-Butt; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Brachiopoda; Dailyatia; Cambrian; Drumian; Middle Cambrian; Early Cambrian; Antarctica; tommotiid; camenellan; palaeobiology; small shelly fossils; Earth Science with specialization in Historical Geology and Palaeontology; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot historisk geologi och paleontologi;

    Sammanfattning : The origin of many lophotrochozoan groups can be traced to “small shelly fossil” (SSF) faunas of the Early Cambrian. Antarctica is a key region of study, due to the continent’s known close geographical proximity to well-studied Australian and Indian basins in in the Cambrian. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Exceptionally Preserved Cambrian Lophotrochozoa : Taxonomy, Systematics and Taphonomy of Chengjiang and Indian Springs Lophophorates

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Aodhán D. Butler; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Brachiopoda; Chengjiang; Lagerstätte; Cambrian Explosion; palaeobiology; stem-group; entoproct; phoronid; tommotiid; exceptional preservation.; Earth Science with specialization in Historical Geology and Palaeontology; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot historisk geologi och paleontologi;

    Sammanfattning : The origin and evolution of Lophotrochozoa can be traced to the plethora of lower Cambrian scleritome taxa.  We aim to determine the character suites linking these stem-Lophotrochozoa to their extant crown relatives, in particular the small shelly tommotiids and the stem-group brachiopods.

  5. 5. Ordovician (Billingen and Volkhov stages) Brachiopod Faunas of the East Baltic

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Eva Egerquist; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Earth sciences; Early Middle Ordovician; Billingen Regional Stage; Volkhov Regional Stage; Diversity; Brachiopoda; Conodonta; Ostracoda; Estonia; Russia; Geovetenskap; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Lower-Middle Ordovician (Arenig) successions in the East Baltic have been investigated for more than one hundred and fifty years. Nevertheless detailed sampling still yields new species and better knowledge of the environment in which these organisms lived. LÄS MER
