Abstract

The background to the preparation of the rudist sections for the ongoing complete revision of the Bivalvia volumes of the ‘Treatise on Invertebrate Palaeontology’ is described. The progress on publication is reported. The plans for further work are outlined. Three introductory chapters on rudists have already been published in ‘Treatise Online’ (University of Kansas, Paleontological Institute). Future work will be devoted to the preparation of the taxonomic descriptions of genera and a synoptic example of which is provided for the genus Pachytraga.
