Glacial Sedimentary Processes and Products: Special by Michael J. Hambrey, Poul Christoffersen, Neil F. Glasser, PDF

Associating ice plenty with the shipping and deposition of sediments has lengthy shaped a critical subject matter in glaciology and glacial geomorphology. the cause of this concentration is obvious, in that ice plenty are chargeable for a lot of the actual panorama which characterizes the Earth's glaciated areas. This organization additionally holds at various scales, for instance, from the grain-size features of small-scale moraines to the structural structure of large-scale, glacigenic sedimentary sequences in either floor and subaqueous environments.

Polypterids became extinct in South America sometime after the early Paleocene. The name Folypterus refers to the 5-18 flag-like dorsal finlets set atop an elongate body. Each finlet is supported by a sharp spine that can make handling the fish painful. Bichirs have a suite of primitive characters such as diamond-shaped ganoid scales, spiracles, spiral valve, gular plate, maxillary fused to the skull, heterocercal tail, lungs with ventral attachment to the gut, and fleshy pectoral fins (Greenwood, 1984a).

The adult stage of the large lampreys may last 2 years. FIGURE 5. Petromyzon marinus (Goode, 1884, Plate 251). Nonparasitic lampreys, sometimes called "brook" lampreys, do not feed after metamorphosis. These small species, usually less than 20 cm, hide for a few months after metamorphosis while their gonads develop. Then they spawn. All lampreys die after spawning. Spawning females usually have a ventral fin fold and spawning males have a genital papilla. The parasitic sea lamprey, Petromyzon marinus, has done tremendous damage to fish stocks in the Great Lakes.

A female this size may contain more than 7 million eggs (Bond, 1996). Various other size records can be found in Wood (1972). One ounce (28 g) of beluga caviar sells for $55 in a New York restaurant (Matthews, 1998). 41 ACTINOPTERYGIANS—RAY-FINNED FISHES The Sturgeons of Russia, Ukraine, and Iran are the sources of the most expensive caviar, mainly from A. gueldenstaedti, A Caspian-wide fishing ban is thought to be necessary in order to allow the sturgeon population time to recover from tremendous exploitation (Matthews, 1998).
