  journal={Swiss Journal of Geosciences},
Terebratuloid and cancellothyridoid brachiopods from the South-Helvetic Lutetian (Eocene) of the Fäneren region (NE Switzerland) are described: Carneithyris subregularis (Quenstedt) and two forms of Terebratulina s.l. under open nomenclature. Several species of Alpine and non-Alpine origin, related to Carneithyris subregularis, like Terebratula kickxi Galeotti, Terebratula aequivalvis Schafhäutl and Terebratula hilarionis Davidson show characters, which compare well with Carneithyris… 

First record of the brachiopod Erymnaria in the Chruteren Member (Euthal Formation) from a new Palaeogene site in the Brülisau Schuppenzone of northeastern Switzerland (Canton St. Gallen) with remarks on shell asymmetry

A small, smooth-shelled rhynchonellid brachiopod, Erymnaria Cooper, 1959 was discovered in a previously unknown locality in the so-called Brülisau Schuppenzone (imbricate zone) of the South Helvetic

Cretaceous to Recent net continental uplift from paleobiological data: Insights into sub-plate support

There are many geoscience problems for which constraining histories of uplift or subsidence of Earth’s surface is of direct or indirect importance, for example reconstructing tectonics, mantle



A reappraisal of the systematics of the Stethothyris group of brachiopods from the Cenozoic of New Zealand and Australia

The Paleocene to early Eocene (Teurian‐Waipawan) species Campages chathamensis Allan, 1932 is assigned to a new genus, Tioriorithyris, which is considered the likely basal stock from which later Stethothyridinae evolved.

It is suggested that the mode of life of this T. septentrionalis population provides an important insight into at least one of the possible evolutionary pathways which bring about such transformations.
