Fruitbat's Pdf Library - Cephalopoda (Paleocene - Pleistocene)

Recommended Posts


These are a few of the pdf files (and a few Microsoft Word documents) that I've accumulated in my web browsing.

MOST of these are hyperlinked to their source.

If you want one that is not hyperlinked or if the link isn't working, e-mail me at joegallo1954@gmail.com and I'll be happy to send it to you.



Please note that this list will be updated continuously as I find more available resources. All of these files are freely available on the Internet so there should be no copyright issues.





Articles with author names in RED are new additions since May 23, 2018.
