Land and freshwater mollusca found in Great Britain and Ireland by Arthur Stelfox, 1911-1917

About the Project

Could clams help create an environment where fossils can form? Fragments of hadrosaur eggshells were found in only two sites at Dinosaur Provincial Park of southern Alberta that contained large amounts of pisidiid (pea) clams and other species. Scientists think calcium carbonate released from the shells helped the fragile eggshells to fossilize. Irish naturalist Arthur Wilson Stelfox (1883-1972) was studying non-marine Mollusca in Great Britain and Ireland long before the findings in Canada. This journal contains his field notes from June 1911 to September 1917. Specimen lists includes comments about abundance, commonality, measurements, and water temperatures along with some photographs.
