Quick Reference

The attempted interpretation of the functions of particular organs or structures that occur in various fossils. In some cases it is difficult to interpret function in groups that have no living examples, but it is often possible to analyse growth and form in invertebrate groups and to relate this growth both to the biology of the organism and to the environment.
