Maastrichtian to early Tertiary stratigraphy and palaeogeography of the Central and Northern Oman Mountains
Abstract Maastrichtian to Tertiary sedimentary rocks outcrop extensively around the periphery of the Oman Mountains. They form part of a geologically distinct suite of strata deposited afterExpand

Rudists as gregarious sediment-dwellers, not reef-builders, on cretaceous carbonate platforms
Abstract It has sometimes been claimed that rudist bivalves competitively displaced corals from reef frameworks during the Cretaceous. This hypothesis combines two assertions: (1) that the autecologyExpand

Rudists and carbonate platforms in the Aptian: a case study on biotic interactions with ocean chemistry and climate
Variations in Aptian carbonate platform growth and associated turnover among rudists are reviewed and the results synthesized with evidence for climate change to yield an explanatory model. ExtensiveExpand

Corals to rudists—an environmentally induced assemblage succession
Abstract Corals and rudist bivalves commonly coexisted on the shallow carbonate platforms of the Cretaceous Tethyan Realm. Usually, the carbonate platforms show lateral and vertical biotic zonations.Expand
