Beschreibung

In view of the wide range of disciplines involved in Quaternary research, this book offers a one-stop resource for the Quaternary research community, since it reviews the latest techniques and provides an approach to how mollusk shell remains are used in the reconstruction of marine environments in southern South America. Written by specialists in the field, this monograph sets the scene for multidisciplinary research involving taphonomy, paleoecology, paleobiography, morphometry, shell mineralogy analysis and sclerochronology performed on mollusk assemblages and/or selected taxa, and offers a consistent picture of spatial and temporal environmental and climatic changes.



Presents techniques used to employ the remains of mollusk shells in the reconstruction of marine environments

Sets the scene for multidisciplinary research on mollusk assemblages and selected taxa

Supplies a unique picture of spatial and temporal environmental and climatic changes



Autorentext
Sandra Gordillo is an Argentinean researcher at CONICET (Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas). She graduated and defended her PhD thesis at the National University of Córdoba and received postdoctoral training at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada (19971998). Her research focuses on Quaternary mollusk shells, mainly in comparison to their extant relatives. She has participated in paleontological fieldwork mainly in Argentinean Patagonia and in southern Chile. She has also been involved in fieldwork in New Zealand and on Antarctic expedition. In 2011 she obtained a DAADCONICET grant for a scientific visit to the AWI Bremerhaven in Germany. Her interests are related to faunistic changes on different time scales and to the understanding of the paleoenvironmental history of Quaternary molluscs in southern South America and Antarctica. She has authored and coauthored around 50 articles on taphonomy, systematics, paleoecology, paleobiogeography and paleoenvironmental reconstruction based on Quaternary molluscs.
