In the long range of rapidly wasting cliffs at the South Joggins, every successive year exposes new examples of erect trees and other fossils; and, as the removal of the fallen débris is equally rapid with the wasting of the cliff, it is only by repeated visits that the geologist can thoroughly appreciate the richness of this remarkable section, while every renewed exploration is certain to be rewarded by new facts and specimens. The present notice is intended to record the gleanings obtained… Expand
A history of research at the Joggins Fossil Cliffs of Nova Scotia, Canada, the world's finest Pennsylvanian section
The Joggins section is the finest natural exposure of Pennsylvanian strata anywhere in the world. These towering sea-cliffs fringing the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia have attracted geologists forExpand
The Pennsylvanian tropical biome reconstructed from the Joggins Formation of Nova Scotia, Canada
The Pennsylvanian (Langsettian) Joggins Formation contains a diverse fossil assemblage, first made famous by Lyell and Dawson in the mid-19th century. Collector curves based on c. 150 years ofExpand
The Amphibian Fauna from the South Joggins. Nova Scotia
The interest of the Nova Scotia Labyrinthodonts lies therefore in Dendrerpeton acadianum, which provides, not only in the structure of the skull but also of the vertebral column, a form intermediate between the Embolomeri and Rachitomi, combining structural features of both grades. Expand
Sir William Dawson (1820–1899): a very modern paleobotanist
Sir William Dawson was one of Canada’s most influential Nineteenth Century geologists. Although a lifelong opponent of the concept of evolution, a stance that resulted in him being sidelined by theExpand
Permian millipedes from the Fort Sill fissures of southwestern Oklahoma, with comments on allied taxa and millipedes preserved in karstic environments
Abstract. Permian millipedes are rare, especially so considering the relative abundance of millipedes in Carboniferous rocks. We report an early Permian millipede fauna containing three new generaExpand
Early Pennsylvanian (Langsettian) fish assemblages from the Joggins Formation, Canada, and their implications for palaeoecology and palaeogeography
A review of all available specimens of fossil fishes from the classic Pennsylvanian Joggins locality of Nova Scotia, Canada, reveals the existence of a diverse community of chondrichthyansExpand
