​This two-volume paintings is a testomony to the abiding curiosity and human fascination with ammonites. we provide a brand new version to give an explanation for the morphogenesis of septa and the shell, we discover their habitats through the content material of good isotopes of their shells, we speak about the beginning and later evolution of this significant clade, and we carry hypotheses on its death. The Ammonoidea produced various species that may be utilized in biostratigraphy and probably, this is often the macrofossil team, which has been used the main for that objective. however, many features in their anatomy, mode of lifestyles, improvement or paleobiogeographic distribution are nonetheless poorly recognized.  

Themes handled are biostratigraphy, paleoecology, paleoenvironment, paleobiogeography, evolution, phylogeny, and ontogeny. Advances akin to an explosion of latest information regarding ammonites, new applied sciences corresponding to isotopic research, tomography and digital paleontology in most cases, in addition to non-stop discovery of latest fossil unearths have given us the chance to give a complete and well timed "state of the artwork" compilation. additionally, it additionally issues the best way for destiny experiences to extra improve our figuring out of this perpetually attention-grabbing team of organisms.
