Colleges, School and Institutes


The apparatus composition and architecture of the coniform conodont genus Panderodus (Llanvirn-Givetian) has been reconstructed from a bedding plane assemblage associated with soft parts from the Waukesha lagerstatte of Wisconsin, together with published clusters and discrete element collections. This modelling enables a redefinition of the apparatus and species concepts within Panderodus, which is now reconstructed as a nonimembrate apparatus, with four subdivisions in the graciliform element category. -from Authors
