Crinoid systematics

Crinoids are the most primitive of the 5 living echinoderm classes. Crinoid research in the Palaeontology Department largely focuses on their Mesozoic fossil record.

Current projects include:

  • Development of faunal guides to the crinoids of the Gault and Lower Liassic.
  • Monographing of the Middle and Upper Jurassic fauna of the British Isles.
