Quantitative analysis of repaired and unrepaired damage to trilobites from the Cambrian (Stage 4 - Drumian) Iberian Chains, NE Spain

Abstract:

Repaired fossil skeletons provide the opportunity to study predation rates, repair mechanisms, and ecological interactions in deep time. Trilobites allow the study of repaired damage over long time periods and large geographic areas due to their longevity as a group, global distribution, and well-preserved mineralized exoskeletons. Repair frequencies on trilobites from three sites representing offshore marine environments in the Iberian Chains (Spain) show no injuries on 45 complete redl...
