Evolutionary paleoecology : the ecological context of macroevolutionary change
One of the most important questions we can ask about life is "Does ecology matter?" Most biologists and paleontologists are trained to answer "yes," but the exact mechanisms by which ecology mattersExpand

Nutrients, temperature, disturbance, and evolution: a model for the late Cenozoic marine record of the western Atlantic
Abstract Major changes in the marine biota of the western Atlantic region occurred over the last five million years, but the causes of these changes, and especially the relative roles of changes inExpand

Late Neogene Oceanographic Change along Florida's West Coast: Evidence and Mechanisms
Evidence from vertebrate and invertebrate fossil assemblages and isotopic analyses supports the hypothesis that during the Pliocene biological productivity in the eastern Gulf of Mexico wasExpand

Role of temperature and nutrients in extinction of turritelline gastropods: Cenozoic of the northwestern Atlantic and northeastern Pacific
Abstract Turritelline gastropods (Mesogastropoda, Turritelline) are common to abundant components in many fossil (Cretaceous, Cenozoic) and Recent marine benthic communities, but the environmentalExpand

Age, environment and mode of deposition of the densely fossiliferous Pinecrest Sand (Pliocene of Florida); implications for the role of biological productivity in shell bed formation
The «Pinecrest Sand,» an abundantly fossiliferous Late Pliocene deposit best exposed near Sarasota, Florida, is a poorly understood stratigraphic unit of considerable paleobiological interest becauseExpand

Possible evidence for a large decrease in seawater strontium/calcium ratios and strontium concentrations during the Cenozoic
article i nfo Few constraints exist on the major element chemistry of ancient oceans. Turritellid marine snails precipitate aragonitic shells and are abundant in the Cenozoic fossil record, andExpand
