  1. 1. Diversity and Ecology of a Middle Campanian (Late Cretaceous) Marine Reptile Assemblage from Skåne, Southern Sweden

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Lena Källsten; [2015]
    Keywords : Landmark morphometrics; Marine amniotes; Cretaceous; Mosasauridae; Plesiosauridae; Aigialosuchus; Landmärkesbaserad morfometri; marina amnioter; Kritaperioden; Mosasauridae; Plesiosauridae; Aigialosuchus;

    Abstract : This study has looked at an assemblage of fossilised teeth from Mesozoic marine amniotes from the Kristianstad basin in southern Sweden in order to make an estimate of the ecomorph diversity within said assemblage through looking at the morphology of the teeth. This was done as a pilot study to see if further studies would be able to produce worthwhile results. READ MORE

  2. 2. First evidence of Late Cretaceous decapod crustaceans from Åsen, southern Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Author : Aron Praszkier; [2013]
    Keywords : Decapoda; Crustacean; Axiidea; Cretaceous; Campanian; Åsen; Kristianstad basin; Scania; Sweden; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Decapod crustacean remains were uncovered in 2011 at Åsen, the first from this site. Åsens Late Creta-ceous strata are part of the Kristianstad Basin, in southernmost Sweden. Seven cheliped moulds and a number of other remains such as pereiopod imprints were found in carbonate-cemented nodules within the sediments of the Campanian B. READ MORE

  3. 3. Paleoecology and sedimentology of the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian), marine strata at Åsen, Kristianstad Basin, Southern Sweden, Scania

    Abstract : The Campanian marine strata from Åsen, north east part of the Kristianstad Basin (southern Sweden) contain a most diverse vertebrate and invertebrate marine fossil assemblages. A diverse fossil fauna was collected from Campanian deposits from a ca. 4.15m thick section during June-August 2010-2012. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dental histology of Cretaceous mosasaurs (Reptilia, Squamata) : incremental growth lines in dentine and implications for tooth replacement

    Abstract : The dentine of teeth from five genera of mosasaurs [i.e., Clidastes, Halisaurus, Dollosaurus (Prognathodon),cf. Platecarpus, and Tylosaurus] and a Mesozoic crocodylian (Aigialosuchus) from the Campanian of the Kristianstad Basin, southernmost Sweden, displays two types of incremental growth lines; i.
