Missing molluscs as evidence of large-scale, early skeletal aragonite dissolution in a Silurian sea
In the Silurian carbonate platform succession of Gotland, Sweden, interreef limestone and marl sequences have shallow-marine shelly assemblages dominated by brachiopods, typical of many PaleozoicExpand

Missing molluscs: Field testing taphonomic loss in the Mesozoic through early large-scale aragonite dissolution
As a field test for Cherns and Wright9s previously published hypothesis based on Paleozoic faunas—that the paucity of certain molluscan groups in the fossil record may be largely a taphonomic, notExpand

Lingulate brachiopods from the Lower Ordovician of the Anglo-Welsh Basin, Part 2
Part 2 of this monograph of lingulate brachiopod faunas from Tremadoc, Arenig, Llanvirn and Llandeilo rocks of the Anglo-Welsh Basin concludes with the descriptions of 34 species (17 new), 17 generaExpand

A pre-Hirnantian (Late Ordovician) interval of global cooling – The Boda event re-assessed
Facies analysis suggests that the early–mid Ashgill (Late Ordovician) ‘Boda event’ of Fortey and Cocks [Fortey, R.A., Cocks, L.R.M., 2005. Late Ordovician global warming—The Boda event. Geology 33Expand

Abstract The poorly known type species of Lingulella, Lingula davisii M‘Coy, 1851b, is redefined from new material collected from the type locality and horizon (Upper Cambrian, North Wales).Expand

Taphonomic windows and molluscan preservation
Recent studies on silicified fossil biotas have suggested that substantial skewing of the molluscan record resulted from early aragonite dissolution in mid-outer carbonate ramp settings. If thoseExpand

Taphonomic bias in shelly faunas through time: early aragonitic dissolution and its implications for the fossil record
Early diagenetic dissolution of skeletal carbonate in environments from seafloor to shallow burial has the potential to skew the marine fossil record of aragonitic shells, particularly molluscs.Expand

Tunneling trilobites: Habitual infaunalism in an Ordovician carbonate seafloor
Asaphus trilobites preserved in tunnel systems of the trace fossil Thalassinoides from the mid-Ordovician (ca. 465 Ma) Holen Limestone, Sweden, are interpreted as the trace makers, enabled by shallowExpand
