Classification of Bivalvia
The Bivalvia are wholly aquatic benthos that have undergone secondary degeneration from the condition of the ancestral mollusk through the loss of the head and the adoption of a passive mode of life in which feeding is accomplished by the filtering of water or sifting of sediment for particulate organic matter.

The geological history of New Zealand and its life
The narrow-gutted but lofty archipelago of New Zealand, consisting of two large and many smaller islands, rises from a system of relatively shallow submarine rises and plateaux between the South WestExpand
A new species of fossil Chlamys from the Drygalski agglomerate of Heard Island, Indian Ocean
Abstract Chlamys (Zygochlamys) heardensis n. sp. is described from specimens collected from the Drygalski Agglomerate of Heard Island. Its relationships with other large forms of SubantarcticExpand
Quaternary sediments and plant microfossils from Enderby Island, Auckland Islands
Abstract At Enderby Island, a deposit of till, here named the Enderby Formation, locally separated into upper and lower members by lenses of laminated lake siltstone, overlies a sequence ofExpand
The bivalve mollusc genus Limatula: A list of described species and a review of living and fossil species in the Southwest Pacific
The genus has not previously been subdivided, but its phylogenetic and biogeographic history can only be approached by recognizing a number of species-groups, some of which are formally proposed as subgenera, using characters of shell shape and ornament that appear to be conservative. Expand
Sea lions as geological agents
ABSTRACT Sea mammals, although known to carry gastrolith pebbles in their stomachs, have not hitherto been considered important geological agents. Numbers of water worn pebbles on the surface andExpand
New Zealand Ichthyosaurs—a summary, including new records from the Cretaceous
Abstract The bones reported from the Triassic of Mount Potts last century are indeterminable Ichthyosauria. No bones preserved in collections or seen on recent visits approach the large sizesExpand
