Mesozoic Ammonoids in Space and Time

Abstract

Mesozoic ammonoids were diverse and included not only “conventional” ammonites (belonging to the suborders Ammonitina, Haploceratina, and Perisphinctina) but also several other major and well-known groups such as the Triassic ceratites (Suborder Ceratitina) and the dominantly heteromorphic Cretaceous ancyloceratids (Suborder Ancyloceratina). Many of these, and indeed other ammonoid groups, had globally wide distributions, turning up wherever suitable marine environments of appropriate age were available; others, however, were more local in range. Each major group is briefly introduced, and the general features of its distribution in time and space are summarized.
