The Fauna of the Pottsville Formation of Ohio Below the Lower Mercer Limestone (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Fauna of the Pottsville Formation of Ohio Below the Lower Mercer Limestone This report on the fauna of the Pottsville formation of Ohio below the Lower Mercer limestone is a portion of a much more ex tensive investigation which deals with the entire Pottsville fauna of Ohio, a large portion of which is at present in manuscript form. The field of study is practically new, as up to the present time very little work has been done on the Pottsville fauna of this State, with the exception of a few papers which treat of the Lower Mercer fossils of Flint Ridge and the vicinity. The formation as developed in Ohio includes thirteen fossiliferous horizons, of which six are marine lime stones, four iron ores which contain marine faunas, and three shale horizons associated with coal beds which contain fresh or brackish water fossils.
