        Ark Shells, Wrack Lines, and "Ecological Infidelity" One July morning during a lull between the storms, I walked the wrack lines on the beach at Flanders Bay (NY). These lines mark where the tides deposit their jumbled cargo of sea weed, shells, egg cases, broken crab carapaces and claws, threads of sea grass, and bits of plastic and other debris.

Diatoms account for approximately 40% of total oceanic primary productivity, and over 50% of organic carbon burial in marine sediments (Tréguer et al., ; Falkowski et al., ).As diatoms are diverse and widespread, they strongly reflect their environment and are usually the first to respond to environmental forcing, especially changes in nutrient : Itsuki Suto, Yuichiro Tanaka.

The Calvert Cliffs are a relatively continuous series of natural, m-( foot-) high outcrops along the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County, Maryland (Fig. 1).The Miocene strata exposed in these cliffs—the canonical Calvert, Choptank, and St.

Marys Formations (Shattuck,)—have been the focus of paleontologic and stratigraphic analysis since the late. Alopias palatasi ("Palatas' fox"), commonly referred to as the serrated giant thresher, is an extinct species of giant thresher shark that lived approximately to million years ago during the Miocene epoch, and is known for its uniquely serrated teeth.

It is only known from such isolated teeth, which are large and can measure up to an excess of 4 centimetres (2 in), equating to a Class: Chondrichthyes.
