A standardized method of describing fossils, using Echinoidea as an example
The main purpose of a research paper in palaeontology, or any scientific discipline, is to spread information within the field. In this paper, suggestions are made concerning the structure and organisation of systematic palaeontological papers, using the Echinoidea as an example. A comprehensive table of echinoid morphological features is presented. It is intended that authors following these guidelines will be facilitated in writing research papers that enable expeditious retrieval of information.
