Bibliography of Paleozoic AsterozoaThis bibliography is compiled by F. H. C. Hotchkiss as a continuing project. It was started in 1971. Over the years Vaclav Petr has been especially helpful in contributing to the compilation. The bibliography is added to and edited as time permits throughout each year. The bibliography is annotated at the whim of, and for the benefit of the compiler. The compiler disclaims any standard of completeness or consistency for these annotations. There is a working copy MS word file for each letter of the alphabet. Approximately once per year the latest version of the files is converted to pdf files that are put onto the MPRI website to share with scientists, students and the interested public. We hope that it will be of use to you.
Click on the letters A to Z to access the bibliography.
