Implications for the Paleobiogeography
of Marine and Terrestrial biotas.
They begin with a review of basic terminology in paleogeography, plate tectonics and paleobiogeography
(very useful for students) and then apply that terminology to Avalonia, Armorica and Perunica.
Ostracodes, which are small (~1 mm), bivalved crustaceans with a nearly 500-million-year fossil record, are one of the most useful fossil groups for use in paleobiogeography
, and thus can contribute to understanding ancient plate tectonic configurations.

The chapters cover topics such as morphometrics, phylogenetic analysis, paleobiogeography
and time series analysis.

of montane islands in the Great Basin since the last glaciopluvial.
Over the next few months, using data from fossil bryozoans of Pakistan, New Zealand, and the United States, Morozova and Gilmour finalized a major monograph, The Late Permian Paleobiogeography
of Bryozoans of the World.
