Research interest

Dr. Brian D.E. Chatterton specializes in the systematics of trilobite, conodont, and rostroconch fossils from Ordovician through Devonian times. Particular interests include: ontogeny, heterochrony and evolution of trilobites; event stratigraphy and its effect on evolution, extinction and survivorship; biostratigraphy; biogeography; and paleoecology. Present work includes description and classification of new faunas, and classification of known and new faunas using a combination of cladistic and stratophenetic approaches. Fossils are derived mainly from Canada, but also from Sweden, Iran, and Australia.
