About this book

The present volumes deal with all Paleozoic corals, but also includes description of some Mesozoic descendants, especially among the Chaetetida. The groups described in this Supplement to Treatise Part F were, in the original edition of Part F (1956, reprint 1967), arranged in three different sections, which were treated as orders of the class Anthozoa: Rugosa by Dorothy Hill (p. F233-324), Heterocorallia by Dorothy Hill (p. F324-327), and Tabulata by Dorothy Hill and Erwin C. Stumm (p. F444-477), totaling approximately 140 pages. In this revision Dorothy Hill merged the order Heterocorallia as an order with the Rugosa, thus returning time-honored twofold division of the Paleozoic corals into Rugosa and Tabulata, now treated as subclasses of the class Anthozoa.
