Microstructural Organization of the Exoskeleton of Some Articulate Brachiopods (Terebratulida, Rhynchonellida) — The Importance of the Calcitic Granules and the Effects of Diagenesis
In order to interpret the different microstructural patterns observed in fossil brachiopod shells, the palaeontologist must fully understand the biomineralization processes which are involved inExpand

Thecosomata (pteropods) and their remains in late Quaternary deposits on the Bougainville Guyot and the central New Hebrides Island Arc
We undertook a quantitative study of Thecosomata shells (pelagic gastropods) and their remains in Quaternary foraminiferal oozes deposited on the tilted calcareous platform of the Bougainville GuyotExpand

Some Cretaceous long-looped terebratulide brachiopods analysed in the light of the diversity observed in the ontogeny of Recent representatives
The shape of the loop is of prime importance in brachiopod terebratulide classification and has been widely discussed and revised [Williams et al., 1996]. In the Rhynchonelliforma, we have focusedExpand

Analysis of growth and form in Aerothyris kerguelenensis (rhynchonelliform brachiopod) - Shell spiral deviations, microstructure, trace element contents and stable isotope ratios
Abstract Brachiopods are usually attached benthic marine invertebrates with a shell (exoskeleton) that archives modifications of the environment via chemical proxies. Growth lines regularly occurringExpand
