By S. V. Boletzky (auth.), Federico Olóriz, Francisco J. Rodríguez-Tovar (eds.)

Relying at the newest analytical options, this all-embracing new reference deals finished insurance of the improvement, evolution, and morphology of either fossil and residing cephalopods. In 34 in-depth chapters a bunch of fifty one foreign neontologists and peleontologists supply and opverview of present equipment, info, analyses, and interpretations, and posit feedback for destiny study.
With its unheard of blend of nice contributions on residing and fossil cephalopods, this publication offers researchers and complicated scholars in paleontology, invertebrate zoology, evolutionary biology, and allied disciplines with a trove of modern facts and authoritative interpretations that would immeasurably profit their very own studies.

A complete study of these characters must include data from all members of the Ammonoidea. Most available data are from Mesozoic ammonoids, generally due to preservational biases. This study is an attempt to add to that data base by examining some Lower-Middle Devonian representatives of some of the most primitive ammonoid groups. Some data from Devonian ammonoids have been included in earlier studies (Branco 1880-81; Schindewolf, 1933; Erben, 1950, 1953, 1960, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1966). Both Branco and Schindewolf were interested in the embryonic characters of shelled cephalopods as they applied to the position of the Ammonoidea and the Nautiloidea within the Cephalopoda.
