  1. 1. Endocranial Morphology and Phylogeny of Palaeozoic Gnathostomes (Jawed Vertebrates)

    Author : Martin D. Brazeau; Per Ahlberg; Graham Budd; Henning Blom; Michael Coates; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; systematics; palaeontology; anatomy; evolution; Organism biology; Organismbiologi;

    Abstract : Gnathostomes, or jawed vertebrates, make up the overwhelming majority of modern vertebrate diversity. Among living vertebrates, they comprise the chondrichthyans (“cartilaginous fishes” such as sharks, skates, rays, chimaeras) and the osteichthyans (“bony fishes” or bony vertebrates, inclusive of tetrapods).

  2. 2. Cambrian Series 2 (Stages 3-4) Small Shelly Fossils from East Antarctica

    Author : Thomas Claybourn; Lars Holmer; Christian Skovsted; Glenn Brock; Graham Budd; Jan Ove Ebbestad; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : An assemblage of Cambrian Series 2, Stages 3-4 small shelly fossils has been recovered from the Shackleton Limestone and Holyoake Formations of East Antarctica. Small shelly fossils from the early Cambrian are an important window into the world of Cambrian palaeobiology, biostratigraphy and biogeography. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biostratigraphy and Systematics of Cambrian Small Shelly Fossils from East Antarctica and South Australia

    Author : Thomas M. Claybourn; Lars E. Holmer; Glenn A. Brock; Christian B. Skovsted; Graham Budd; David Harper; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cambrian; Biostratigraphy; Systematics; East Antarctica; Small Shelly Fossils;

    Abstract : The remote lower Cambrian Byrd group of sedimentary rocks from East Antarctica has been studied intermittently since its discovery over a century ago. Previous insights into the trilobites and archaeocyaths indicated a close correlation to the sedimentary sequences of South Australia. READ MORE

  4. 4. The morphology and evolutionary significance of the anomalocaridids

    Author : Allison C. Daley; Graham E. Budd; Nigel C. Hughes; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; anomalocaridids; Cambrian; Burgess Shale; exceptional preservation; palaeontology; Historical geology and palaeontology; Historisk geologi och paleontologi; Historical Geology and Paleontology; Historisk geologi och paleontologi;

    Abstract : Approximately 600 to 500 million years ago, a major evolutionary radiation called the “Cambrian Explosion” gave rise to nearly all of the major animal phyla known today. This radiation is recorded by various fossil lagerstätten, such as the Burgess Shale in Canada, where soft-bodied animals are preserved in exquisite detail. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Comparative Study of Head Development in Mexican Axolotl and Australian Lungfish: Cell Migration, Cell Fate and Morphogenesis

    Author : Rolf Ericsson; Rolf Ohlsson; Graham Budd; Lennart Olsson; Per Ahlberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Head development; axolotl; lungfish; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental Biology; miljömedicinsk utvecklingsbiologi;

    Abstract : The development of the vertebrate head is a complex process involving interactions between a multitude of cell types and tissues. This thesis describes the development of the cranial neural crest and of the visceral arch muscles in the head of two species. READ MORE
