Annual cycle of shell growth increment formation in two continental shelf bivalves and its paleoecologic significance
The bivalves Spisula solidissima , the Atlantic surf clam, and Arctica islandica , the ocean quahog, from the continental shelf off New Jersey, contain repeating structures in their shells. ByExpand

Origin of the white shark Carcharodon (Lamniformes: Lamnidae) based on recalibration of the Upper Neogene Pisco Formation of Peru
Abstract:  The taxonomic origin of the white shark, Carcharodon, is a highly debated subject. New fossil evidence presented in this study suggests that the genus is derived from the broad-toothedExpand

Marking time with bivalve shells; oxygen isotopes and season of annual increment formation
Most bivalve shells contain macroscopic growth-increment patterns which form with an annual periodicity. These are best observed in radial shell cross-sections and consist of alternating darkExpand

Annual internal growth banding and life history of the ocean quahog Arctica islandica (Mollusca: Bivalvia)
Internal growth bands visible in cross-sections of the valves and hinge plates of Arctica islandica Linné are deposited annually, possibly in response to the reproductive cycle. Growth rate andExpand

Records of upwelling, seasonality and growth in stable‐isotope profiles of Pliocene mollusk shells from Florida
Oxygen and carbon isotopic profiles across the shells of well-preserved bivalves and gastropods from the Pliocene Pinecrest Beds near Sarasota, Florida, provide detailed records of theExpand

Origin of the epeirogenic uplift of Pliocene-Pleistocene beach ridges in Florida and development of the Florida karst
Marine fossils of Pleistocene age are known to occur in beach ridges near the border of northern Florida and southern Georgia at elevations of between 42 and 49 m above mean sea level. No evidenceExpand
