Conodont Studies Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the First Conodont Paper (Pander, 1856) and the 40th Anniversary of the Pander Society
D. Jeffrey Over
Conodonts are extinct chordates resembling eels, known mainly from tooth-like microfossils called elements, found in Late Cambrian to Late Triassic fossil deposits (495 to 200 MYA). The nine manuscripts in this volume were, for the most part, first presented at conferences dedicated to conodont studies in 2006-2007 that each celebrated two milestones in conodont studies, the 150th anniversary of Christian H. Pander’s 1856 paper that first described and illustrated conodonts, and the organization of the society for conodont enthusiasts that now bears his name in 1967. These papers cover a wide range of topics, times, and regions, illustrating the broad utility of conodonts, primarily as biostratigraphic tools, but also in studies of, although not limited to, geochemistry, paleobiology, paleogeography, and sequence stratigraphy.
