The Giant Marine Gastropod Campanile Giganteum (Lamarck, 1804) as a High-Resolution Archive of Seasonality in the Eocene Greenhouse World Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Giant gastropods are among the largest mollusks in the fossil record, but their potential as paleoseasonality archives has received little attention. Here, we combine stable isotope and trace element analyses with microscopic observations and growth modeling on shells of two species of the gastropod genus Campanile: the extinct Campanile giganteum from Lutetian (~45 Ma) deposits in the Paris Basin (France), the longest gastropod known from ...
