Oxygen and carbon stable isotopes of modern land snail shells as environmental indicators from a low-latitude oceanic island
Abstract Land snails provide a unique opportunity to study terrestrial paleoenvironments because their shells, which are generally highly abundant and well-preserved in the fossil record, contain aExpand

Stable isotope (δ18O, δ13C, and δD) signatures of recent terrestrial communities from a low-latitude, oceanic setting: Endemic land snails, plants, rain, and carbonate sediments from the eastern
Abstract Stable isotopes of oxygen and carbon extracted from fossil land snail shells have been used increasingly to interpret past environments. To evaluate the utility of this approach forExpand

Climatic cycles inferred from the aminostratigraphy and aminochronology of Quaternary dunes and palaeosols from the eastern islands of the Canary Archipelago
Aminochronological and aminostratigraphical methods have been used to study the Quaternary a e o l i a n deposits f r om the islands located east of the Canary Archipelago (Fuerteventura andExpand

A contribution to the understanding of late Pleistocene dune sand-paleosol-sequences in Fuerteventura (Canary Islands)
Abstract This paper describes dune sand-paleosol-sequences of four pits in Northern Fuerteventura (Canary Islands). The elaborated stratigraphy is reinforced with luminescence dating to provide aExpand

Millennial-scale cyclical environment and climate variability during the Holocene in the western Mediterranean region deduced from a new multi-proxy analysis from the Padul record (Sierra Nevada,
Abstract A high-resolution multi-proxy approach, integrating pollen, inorganic and organic geochemical and sedimentological analyses, has been carried out on the Holocene section of the PadulExpand

Testing limiting similarity in Quaternary terrestrial gastropods
Abstract The hypothesis of limiting similarity, which postulates that morphologically and/or ecologically similar species will differ enough in shape, size, or other variables to minimizeExpand

A continuous multi-millennial record of surficial bivalve mollusk shells from the Sao Paulo Bight, Brazilian shelf
Abstract To evaluate the potential of using surficial shell accumulations for paleoenvironmental studies, an extensive time series of individually dated specimens of the marine infaunal bivalveExpand

ECOLOGICAL FIDELITY OF PLEISTOCENE–HOLOCENE LAND SNAIL SHELL ASSEMBLAGES PRESERVED IN CARBONATE-RICH PALEOSOLS
Abstract Studies that assess the ecological fidelity—preservation of the original community—of terrestrial shell accumulations are uncommon but essential to infer accurate changes in past ecosystems.Expand

Drilling predation intensity and feeding preferences by Nucella (Muricidae) on limpets inferred from a dead-shell assemblage
Although limpets are common in rocky intertidal shores, little is known about drilling predation on them. Drilling intensity and preferences by Nucella (Muricidae) on three Lottiidae species (LottiaExpand
