  • A Legacy in Fossils: a Tribute to Stan Wood – Preface
    • Authors: Nicholas C. Fraser; Timothy R. Smithson, Jennifer A. Clack
      Pages: 1 - 5
      Abstract: Stan Wood had a gift for finding exceptional Early Carboniferous fossils. Among them are 32 type specimens. His discoveries significantly changed our understanding of the history of life on Earth. Many of the fossils he collected are on display in museums across the UK and the localities he discovered continue to yield important new material. Here we briefly review some of Stan Wood's key achievements and describe the legacy he left.

  • What made Stan Wood a great collector'
    • Authors: Timothy R. Smithson; W. D. Ian Rolfe
      Pages: 7 - 17
      Abstract: Stan Wood was an exceptional fossil collector who, over a collecting career of more than 40 years, provided British palaeontology with an abundance and variety of new Carboniferous fossils, the like of which had not been collected since Victorian times. So, what made him a great collector' Here, with the help of Stan's family, his friends and colleagues, we try to provide the answer. There is no single factor that stands out, but a complex mixture of innate and learned behaviours that together produced a unique talent. Although he acquired an Open University degree in geology, Stan was largely self-taught as a collector and, in doing so, became an accomplished and confident field geologist. He was naturally curious, persistent and very observant, with a photographic memory. He was tough, very strong and enjoyed hard physical work. He was congenial, unorthodox and a calculated risk taker. He asked questions, tested ideas and had a healthy disregard for authority. He was systematic, kept detailed records and shared his discoveries. He not only loved collecting fossils but, in the process, discovered in himself the essential qualities of a true scientist.

  • Tristychius+arcuatus+(Agassiz,+1837)&rft.title=Earth+and+Environmental+Science+Transactions+of+the+Royal+Society+of+Edinburgh&rft.issn=0263-5933&">The neurocranium of the Lower Carboniferous shark Tristychius arcuatus
           (Agassiz, 1837)
    • Authors: Michael I. Coates; Kristen Tietjen
      Pages: 19 - 35
      Abstract: Tristychius arcuatus, from the late Viséan of Scotland, is known from numerous ironstone nodule-encased specimens. These are reinvestigated using computerised tomography (CT) scanning and 3-D digital reconstruction methods. CT scans of the neurocranium (braincase) corroborate many features of the existing reconstruction, but also reveal new details of the gross proportions, the external morphology and, for the first time, features of the internal morphology, including the otic skeletal labyrinth. The unusual position of the articulation for the palatoquadrate on the ventral surface of the postorbital process is confirmed, but the area for the hyoid articulation is relocated posteriorly and the configuration of nerve foramina within the orbit is changed. A preliminary phylogenetic hypothesis is offered, suggesting a place for Tristychius within a sequence of early branching events in the elasmobranch lineage. In this, Tristychius is not resolved as a hybodontid, but is instead a stem elasmobranch possibly related to genera such as Acronemus, and exemplifying anatomical conditions close to the base of the Euselachii. As such, the neurocranium of Tristychius offers important insight into a defining feature of these early members of the anatomically advanced elasmobranchs: the origin of specialised phonoreception.

      Abstract: The early tetrapod Crassigyrinus scoticus was a large aquatic predator from the mid Carboniferous (late Viséan or early Serpukovian) of Scotland, around 330 My in age. There are five main specimens with cranial remains: an articulated skeleton; two incomplete skulls; and two lower jaws. Crassigyrinus retains several apparently primitive features of the palatal dentition and lower jaw, and its phylogenetic position is disputed. A partial lower jaw resembling that of Crassigyrinus was discovered at Burnmouth in the Borders region of Scotland. The horizon in which it was found is dated as late Tournaisian, CM palynozone, around 350 My in age. Though it lacks dentition, the jaw preserves much of the postsplenial, angular and surangular, whose appearance externally and internally is almost identical to that of C. scoticus. Internally, the jaw shows a similarly limited extent of the suturing between the splenial series and the prearticular, a primitive condition. Externally, the type and distribution of dermal ornamentation closely matches that of C. scoticus, as does the deeply excavated and marginally positioned lateral line groove. As well as external and internal features, all specimens of C. scoticus are of similar skull size, though the Burnmouth jaw is somewhat smaller. If correctly attributable to Crassigyrinus, this specimen extends the existence of the genus by approximately 20 million years towards the base of the Carboniferous.

  • Glencartholm revisited: describing for the first time Stan Wood's
           discovery and excavation of Mumbie Quarry, adjacent to the important
           Palaeozoic fossil site of Glencartholm
    • Authors: Margaret Wood
      Pages: 47 - 54
      Abstract: Glencartholm in Dumfries and Galloway, Southern Scotland, is one of the most important Palaeozoic fossil fish sites in the world, with a fauna containing more than 30 species. Originally discovered in the bank of the River Esk in 1879, further collecting in the 1930s removed all the accessible fossiliferous strata. These strata were not known to occur elsewhere and despite the site's international importance, details of the section including the fossil bearing beds have not been described. An excavation of a new exposure at Mumbie, 50 metres east of the original site, was undertaken by Stan Wood in the 1990s. Sediments were logged over an 18-metre section. Three separate fish beds were identified and more than 200 specimens of ray-finned fish collected, including one possible new species. Differences in scale colour enables fishes from the different horizons to be distinguished. This should allow material collected previously to be more accurately assigned and assist palaeoecological analysis of the site. In addition to ray-finned fish, cartilaginous fishes were collected together with plants, bivalves, crustaceans, scorpions and horseshoe crabs which have not previously been reported from Glencartholm.

  • A partial lower jaw of a tetrapod from “Romer's Gap”
    • Authors: Donglei Chen; Yasaman Alavi, Martin D. Brazeau, Henning Blom, David Millward, Per E. Ahlberg
      Pages: 55 - 65
      Abstract: The first half of the Mississippian or Early Carboniferous (Tournaisian to mid- Viséan), an interval of about 20 million years, has become known as “Romer's Gap” because of its poor tetrapod record. Recent discoveries emphasise the differences between pre-“Gap” Devonian tetrapods, unambiguous stem-group members retaining numerous “fish” characters indicative of an at least partially aquatic lifestyle, and post-“Gap” Carboniferous tetrapods, which are far more diverse and include fully terrestrial representatives of the main crown-group lineages. It seems that “Romer's Gap” coincided with the cladogenetic events leading to the origin of the tetrapod crown group. Here, we describe a partial right lower jaw ramus of a tetrapod from the late Tournaisian or early Viséan of Scotland. The large and robust jaw displays a distinctive character combination, including a significant mesial lamina of the strongly sculptured angular, an open sulcus for the mandibular lateral line, a non-ossified narrow Meckelian exposure, a well-defined dorsal longitudinal denticle ridge on the prearticular, and a mesially open adductor fossa. A phylogenetic analysis places this specimen in a trichotomy with Crassigyrinus and baphetids + higher tetrapods in the upper part of the tetrapod stem group, above Whatcheeria, Pederpes, Ossinodus, Sigournea and Greererpeton. It represents a small but significant step in the gradual closure of “Romer's Gap”.

  • Diverse and durophagous: Early Carboniferous chondrichthyans from the
           Scottish Borders

      Pages: 67 - 87
      Abstract: Chondrichthyan teeth from a new locality in the Scottish Borders supply additional evidence of Early Carboniferous chondrichthyans in the UK. The interbedded dolostones and siltstones of the Ballagan Formation exposed along Whitrope Burn are interpreted as representing a restricted lagoonal environment that received significant amounts of land-derived sediment. This site is palynologically dated to the latest Tournaisian–early Viséan. The diverse dental fauna documented here is dominated by large crushing holocephalan toothplates, with very few, small non-crushing chondrichthyan teeth. Two new taxa are named and described. Our samples are consistent with worldwide evidence that chondrichthyan crushing faunas are common following the Hangenberg extinction event. The lagoonal habitat represented by Whitrope Burn may represent a temporary refugium that was host to a near-relict fauna dominated by large holocephalan chondrichthyans with crushing dentitions. Many of these had already become scarce in other localities by the Viséan and become extinct later in the Carboniferous. This fauna provides evidence of early endemism or niche separation within European chondrichthyan faunas at this time. This evidence points to a complex picture in which the diversity of durophagous chondrichthyans is controlled by narrow spatial shifts in niche availability over time.

  • A new tetrapod from Romer's Gap reveals an early adaptation for walking
    • Authors: Timothy R. Smithson; Jennifer A. Clack
      Pages: 89 - 97
      Abstract: A new early tetrapod, Mesanerpeton woodi gen. et sp. nov., collected by Stan Wood from the Ballagan Formation, Tournaisian CM palynozone, at Willie's Hole, Scottish Borders, is described. It includes vertebrae like those of Crassigyrinus, with poorly developed neural arches, a well ossified ulna with a large olecranon, and a humerus that is structurally intermediate between the pleisiomorphic condition of Devonian taxa and that of all later forms. A comparative analysis of this new material and other tetrapodomorph humeri revealed how an increase in humeral torsion transformed the course of the brachial artery and median nerve through the bone, from an entirely ventral path to one in which the blood vessel and nerve passed through the entepicondyle from the dorsal to the ventral surface. Increasing humeral torsion is suggested to improve walking in early tetrapods by potentially contributing to an increase in stride length, and is one of a number of changes to limb morphology during the Early Carboniferous that led to the development of terrestrial locomotion.

  • A new terrestrial millipede fauna of earliest Carboniferous (Tournaisian)
           age from southeastern Scotland helps fill ‘Romer's Gap'
    • Authors: Andrew J. Ross; Gregory D. Edgecombe, Neil D. L. Clark, Carys E. Bennett, Vicen Carrió, Rubén Contreras-Izquierdo, Bill Crighton
      Pages: 99 - 110
      Abstract: A diverse millipede (diplopod) fauna has been recovered from the earliest Carboniferous (Tournaisian) Ballagan Formation of the Scottish Borders, discovered by the late Stan Wood. The material is generally fragmentary; however, six different taxa are present based on seven specimens. Only one displays enough characters for formal description and is named Woodesmus sheari Ross, Edgecombe & Clark gen. & sp. nov. The absence of paranota justifies the erection of Woodesmidae fam. nov. within the Archipolypoda. The diverse fauna supports the theory that an apparent lack of terrestrial animal fossils from ‘Romer's Gap' was due to a lack of collecting and suitable deposits, rather than to low oxygen levels as previously suggested.

  • A review of recent discoveries of exceptionally preserved fossil fishes
           from the Gogo sites (Late Devonian, Western Australia)
    • Authors: John A. Long; Kate M. Trinajstic
      Pages: 111 - 117
      Abstract: Significant new material of Late Devonian Gogo Formation fish fossils is still surfacing. Collecting in the past decade has uncovered the first Gogo shark fossils (Gogoselachus plus another new undescribed taxon), the first acanthodian (Halmacanthodes ahlbergi), the first coelacanth, as well as the first placoderm embryos. Recent studies have elucidated the nature of placoderm claspers, pelvic girdles, synarcuals and embryos, the structure of their teeth, a description of well-preserved muscles in placoderms, and how muscles attach to bones. Molecular biomarkers have also been identified in Gogo fossils. There are now five basal ray-fin fishes in the fauna, including one undescribed new taxon. The lungfish fauna from Gogo is the most diverse known for any Devonian site, with 10 genera and 12 species. The dermal skeleton and endocast of the dipterid Rhinodipterus kimberleyensis have been described in detail from CT scans; and the ontogenetic stages of neurocranium formation in Griphognathus. New specimens of the tetrapodomorph fish Gogonasus andrewsae have shed further light on its endocranium, pectoral girdle and fin. Through their exceptional preservation of both hard and varied kinds of soft tissues, the Gogo fishes remain crucial for resolving key debates on the diversification, physiology, biomechanics and phylogenetic relationships of early gnathostomes.
