Fossil corals from Central America, Cuba, and Porto Rico: with an account of the American Tertiary, Pleistocene, and recent coral reefs
This is a reproduction of a book published before 1923. This book may have occasional imperfections such as missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc. that were either part of the original artifact, or were introduced by the scanning process. We believe this work is culturally important, and despite the imperfections, have elected to bring it back into print as part of our continuing commitment to the preservation of printed works worldwide. We appreciate your understanding of the imperfections in the preservation process, and hope you enjoy this valuable book.
A Monograph Of The British Fossil Corals: 2d Ser
This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.
Fossil Scleractinian Corals from James Ross Basin, Antarctica
Sixteen scleractinian species are known from the Upper Cretaceous and Paleocene strata of Seymour and Snow Hill islands, Antarctica, based upon all type and newly collected material; nine of those 16 species are described as new. Seven of those nine new species are referred to the Turbinoliidae; four genera of Turbinoliidae also are established as new.
