Notes on the rates and patterns of size change in evolution
The rates and patterns of phyletic body size increase aild decrease are discussed on the assumption that size change proceeds toward some limit due to selective advantage. Because the selectionExpand

Geometric regularity of some oblique sculptures in pectinid and other bivalves: recognition by computer simulations
The geometric regularity of oblique sculptures in pectinids and some other bivalves was ex- amined both theoretically and empirically. Camptonectes microsculpture occurs exclusively on the externalExpand
