This two-volume paintings is a testomony to the abiding curiosity and human fascination with ammonites. we provide a brand new version to provide an explanation for the morphogenesis of septa and the shell, we discover their habitats via the content material of reliable isotopes of their shells, we talk about the foundation and later evolution of this significant clade, and we carry hypotheses on its dying. The Ammonoidea produced a number of species that may be utilized in biostratigraphy and probably, this can be the macrofossil crew, which has been used the main for that function. however, many facets in their anatomy, mode of existence, improvement or paleobiogeographic distribution are nonetheless poorly known. 

Themes handled are biostratigraphy, paleoecology, paleoenvironment, paleobiogeography, evolution, phylogeny, and ontogeny. Advances comparable to an explosion of latest information regarding ammonites, new applied sciences akin to isotopic research, tomography and digital paleontology in most cases, in addition to non-stop discovery of recent fossil reveals have given us the chance to give a entire and well timed "state of the paintings" compilation. additionally, it additionally issues the best way for destiny reports to extra improve our realizing of this forever attention-grabbing staff of organisms.
