The Amateur Paleontologist posted a topic in DocumentsIf you guys might remember from a another tread, I said that some of the documents from the Møns Klint Paleontological Library are too large to be uploaded to TFF. Instead, the papers (see below) can be sent by email. This post can be considered as some sort of "storage facility", where all the records of large files are held. Keep in mind that not all of the papers make a direct reference to Møns Klint's paleo-fauna, but can instead be used as "comparative research material to contextualise and broaden understanding of MK's fossil fauna" (forgive my excess of pedantic language there) If you wish to have any of the following works, please include your email address and the number(s) of the desired work(s) in your reply. A pdf copy (or copies) shall be sent to you by email upon request. The list of numbered works can be seen below. 1) Birkelund (1993): "Ammonites from the Maastrichtian White Chalk of Denmark" - complete review of the Danish chalk ammonite fauna, very useful for field ID. Some of the material presented in the paper is from MK 2) Hansen & Surlyk (2014): "Marine macrofossil communities in the uppermost Maastrichtian chalk of Stevns Klint, Denmark" - a good number of the faunal elements reviewed in the paper are very similar (if not identical) to MK 3) Jagt (2000): "Late Cretaceous-Early Paleogene echinoderms and the K/T boundary in the southeast Netherlands and northeast Belgium --- Part 3: Ophiuroids; with a chapter on: Early Maastrichtian ophiuroids from Rügen (northeast Germany) and Møn (Denmark) by Kutscher & Jagt" - this comprehensive review describes a good amount of ophiuroid material from MK 4) Jagt (2000): "Late Cretaceous-Early Paleogene echinoderms and the K/T boundary in the southeast Netherlands and northeast Belgium --- Part 4: Echinoids" - none of the material is from MK but many of the taxa presented in the paper can be found at MK 5) Jagt (2000): "Late Cretaceous-Early Paleogene echinoderms and the K/T boundary in the southeast Netherlands and northeast Belgium --- Part 5: Asteroids" - no material from MK, but many taxa presented in the paper can be found over there. There is a small reference to Pycinaster aff. cornutus marginal ossicles from the Lower Maastrichtian of MK. 6) Jagt et al. (1999): "Giant scaphitid ammonites from the Maastrichtian of Europe" - can be used to identify fossils of Acanthoscaphites and Hoploscaphites (two scaphitid genera from MK) 7) Ravn (1928): [in Danish] "De regulære echinider i Danmarks kridtaflejringer" [the regular echinoids from the Danish Chalk exposures] - somewhat outdated, but can be useful for field ID. It also includes some of the most detailed accounts of regular echinoids from MK 8) Reich et al. (2004): "The echinoderms of the Rügen White Chalk (Maastrichtian, Germany)"- general overview of the echinoderm fauna from the Rügen chalk, which is almost identical to that of MK 9) Reich & Frenzel (2002): [in German with an abstract in English] "Die Fauna ind Flora der Rügener Schreibkreide (Maastrichtium, Ostsee)" [The fauna and flora of the Rügen Chalk (Maastrichtian, Blatic Sea] - very comprehensive account of the fossil fauna from the Rügen chalk, which can be used to ID material from MK due to very similar faunal contents 10) Schlüter et al. (2012): "Late Cretaceous phymosomatids and the true identity of Cidarites granulosus Goldfuss, 1829 (Echinoidea, Phymosomatoida)" - some of the phymosomatid material presented is from MK So what paper(s) would you want? Feel free to pick any!
Hello everyone, and welcome to the Møns Klint Paleontological Library! It consists of (mostly) papers dealing with the chalk fauna from the Maastrichtian of Møns Klint, and a few related topics. Entrance fee is 10 eur- just kidding But if you guys want some of the larger PDF's (which can't be attached here), I can send them to you by email. Enjoy... -Adolfssen & Ward 2014: "Crossing the boundary: an elasmobranch fauna from Stevns Klint, Denmark" - describes the rather extensive record of various shark teeth from Maastrichtian and K-Pg boundary Danish sediments. Most of the specimens described are from Stevns Klint, but two taxa (a possible Megasqualus sp. squalid and Anomotodon plicatus) are represented by material from Møns Klint Adolfssen & Ward 2014 Danish Chalk elasmobranchs.pdf -Jørgensen 1979: "The ostracod fauna from the Maastrichtian white chalk of Denmark" - presents an overview of the ostracod fauna from the Danish chalk and compares it to faunas of similar sites (i.e. Rügen) Jørgensen 1979 Danish chalk ostracod fauna.pdf -Lindgren & Jagt 2005: "Danish Mosasaurs" - describes the scant remains (2-3 teeth and a few bone scraps) of mosasaurs in Maastrichtian Danish sediments. Recognised taxa include Mosasaurus cf. hoffmanni and Plioplatecarpus sp. Nothing described in the paper was found at Møns Klint (the first mosasaur remains from there had been found 2 years after the publication of this paper), but the material from MK is similar to what is in this paper. Lindgren & Jagt 2005 Danish Mosasaurs.pdf -Nielsen & Rosenkrantz 1942: "Martinosigra elongata n. g. et n. sp. a New Echinoid from the White Chalk of Denmark" - describes the Danish record of Martinosigra elongata, a holasteroid (irregular) echinoid; the remains were collected from Møns Klint and Rørdal (northern Jutland). The MK material illustrated in the paper consists of a partial echinoid "neck" Nielsen & Rosenkrantz 1942 Martinosigra from the Danish Chalk.pdf There's more to come...
