    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Käkförsedda havsborstmaskar (polychaeter) var artrika och vanliga i de tidigpaleozoiska haven. Maskarnas käkar, benämda scolecodonter i den vetenskapliga litteraturen, är mycket vanliga mikrofossil i sedimentära bergarter, främst kalkstenar av denna ålder. READ MORE

    Abstract : 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.

    Abstract : Extinct organisms that cannot be accommodated in any extant phylum are generally referred to as "problematic fossils". They are more numerous in progressively older strata and constitute an important part of the late Proterozoic and early Palaeozoic biota. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Martin D. Brazeau; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; systematics; palaeontology; anatomy; evolution; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi 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).
