Jin, Jisuo and Renbin Zhan.
NRC Research Press
Jin (earth sciences, U. of Western Ontario) and Zhan (paleobiology and stratigraphy, Nanjing Institute of Geology and Paleontology) offer a survey of the Orthide and Billengsellide brachiopods of Anticosti Island in eastern Canada. The authors note that these orthides are significant because of their abundance and diversity during a time of global diversity decline and mass extinction. The monograph includes descriptions (with illustrations and photographs) of the numerous families and superfamilies of brachiopods, extensive references, and an appendix with locality data.
