      Australia is separated from Indonesia to the northwest by the Timor and Arafura seas, from Papua New Guinea to the northeast by the Coral Sea and the Torres Strait, from the Coral Sea Islands Territory by the Great Barrier Reef, from New Zealand to the southeast by the Tasman Sea, and from Antarctica in the far south by the Indian Ocean.

It is deep and full of fish, and Abaia, the magic eel, dwells at the bottom. Abaia does not like to be disturbed. Like many snakes and eels in Melanesian beliefs, it is closely associated with weather, storms, and floods. Once a man found Abaia’s lake and caught many fish.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Skwarko, S. (Stanislaw K.) Mesozoic mollusca from Australia and New Guinea. Canberra: Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, The Mesozoic Era, covering an interval of Earth history from about million to 65 million years ago, comprises three geologic time periods: Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous.

The term, meaning "middle life," was introduced in by the English geologist John Phillips. Mollusca is the second-largest phylum of invertebrate animals after the members are known as molluscs or mollusks (/ ˈ m ɒ l ə s k /).Aro extant species of molluscs are recognized. The number of fossil species is estimated betw andadditional species.

The proportion of undescribed species is very m: Animalia. In the Palaeozoic, New Guinea contained the boundary between a Late Palaeozoic active margin in the east and a region of extension associated with Gondwana breakup along the western margin of Australia.

In the Permian and Early Triassic, New Guinea was an active margin resulting in widespread Middle Triassic granite intrusions. Australian Mesozoic trigoniids / by S.K. Skwarko; Dinosaurs in Australia: Mesozoic life from the southern continent / Benjamin P.

The Order Trigonioida was one of the most important groups of bivalves during the Mesozoic, Eocene mollusca of southern Australia.

Thomas A. Darragh trough east of Papua New Guinea and the. Mesozoic and Cenozoic rocks occur in widely distributed (though poorly exposed) basins onshore (the Great Artesian Basin in the eastern centre).

Offshore they occur on the western, southern, and eastern margins, including beneath Bass Strait, which separates Australia from Tasmania, and to the north in the submerged ground between the Banda arcs/New Guinea and the mainland.

This book documents the rich and spectacular heritage of the Australian continent over the last million years. Now in its third edition, The Geology of Australia provides a comprehensive overview of Australia's geology, landscapes and Earth resources.

They were written by the first two Commonwealth Palaeontologists, Frederick Chapman and Irene Crespin, and published as Palaeontological Bulletins between and When the BMR decided to launch a regular series of Bulletins inthese three earlier works were retrospectively included.

This book and its companion volume provide the first comprehensive account of the Mollusca in decades. Illustrated with hundreds of colour figures, it reviews molluscan biology, genomics, anatomy, physiology, fossil history, phylogeny and classification.

Throughout much of the Mesozoic, mammals remained mouse-sized and lived primarily in the underbrush, coming out primarily at night. The archaic egg-laying mammals of the Late Triassic and Jurassic are survived today by the platypus and spiny anteater of Australia and New Guinea that still lay soft-shelled eggs.

The phylum Mollusca is the second largest group of animals and occur in virtually all habitats. Many non-marine molluscs are threatened with more recorded extinctions than all tetrapod vertebrates combined. This two-volume set will provide the first general account of molluscs in decades and will include hundreds of colour figures.

General chapters bring together a diverse and extensive. The memoirs were initiated in as the Memoirs of the Association of Australasian Palaeontologists as a monographic series published by AAP.

In their series title was changed to Australasian Palaeontological Memoirs. It is published directly through the Association of Australasian Palaeontologists. List of monographs [ edit ]. Included are typical Mesozoic fossils, such as the ammonites, belemnites, and other collectible fossil mollusks characteristic of the Cretaceous, a variety of plants, well-preserved arthropods such as crabs and insects, turtles, crocodiles, and Rating: % positive.
