About this book

This volume presents the recent work of an international group of 46 brachiopodologists from 19 countries. Topics discussed in detail in this volume range from aspects of the early development, shell growth, and skeletal crystallography and nanostructure of brachiopods, to observations on the ecology of living and fossil species. The volume also deals with the latest developments in our understanding of the evolution of the shells of brachiopods and the skeletons of other possible lophophorates, the investigation of brachiopods from inaccessible areas, and collections of particular systematic/phylogenetic interest. In addition, one new order, one new subfamily, two new genera and eleven new species are established in this volume. The volume includes 124 text-figures, 30 plates and 23 tables.
