Evolution of Biomineralization Systems within the Cephalopoda
ammonoids were more efficient than coeval coiled nautiloids in the precipitation of aragonite
the Sr and Mg chemistry of early ammonoid skeletons was much difference than later descendents, and 3) the shell chemistry of early nautiloids is not markedly different from their modern descendent, Nautilus.
