Proceedings third international conference - Lyon
2 fasc., 690 p., 85 pl., 160 fig., 39 tabl.
third Conference of the International Bryozoology Association
was held in the University Claude Bemnard of Lyon (France), 2-11
september 1974. Professor Frank Maturo (University of Florida)
presided ; the Conference chairman was Professor L. David (University
of Lyon) and Miss P. L. Cook (British Museum - Natural History
- London) was Conference Secretary. The Association records its
sincere thanks to the Department of Geological Sciences of Lyon
for the facilities provided.
members attended the Conference and fifty-five papers were read
at the sessions. A wide range of topics relating to both living
and fossil Bryozoa was considered in the papers and seminar discussions.
A palaeontological excursion was held to Miocene localities of
the Rhône basin. A field to the island of Chateau d'If near
Marseille allowed shore collection and dredging.
variety of the papers presented at the Conference, and those comprising
the present volume, reflect the research activity in Bryozoology.
The dialogue developed between zoologists and palaeontologists
has proved most fruitful.
papers are published here reflecting the wide variety of interest
in the Bryozoa. These interests centre on morphology and structure,
growth and budding patterns, on classification, ecology and palaeocology,
on phylogeny and bibliography of the Bryozoa.
a series of papers of this variety by authors from 14 different
countries presents many problems. It is evident there are still
varied usages of some bryozoological terms. Semantic difficulties
may well account for some of these variations in understanding
and it is good that it has been possible to include two summaries
of papers, in the English and in the French.
reasons of limited space, it is flot possible to print here abstracts
of other papers read at the Conference but not published in this
volume. In the order of presentation at the Conference these papers
M. Gurgel : "Bryozoa of the North and North-eastern coast
Ph. Sandberg : "Ontogeny and probable phylogeny of the frontal
wall of umbonuloids (Cheilostomata, Ascophora)".
J. D. Farmer : "The ground-plan concept and its bearing on
the question of ectoproct ancestry".
D. Lorenz : "Patterns of structural adaptation in the skeletal
architecture of some erect Paleozoic Bryozoa".
A. Schaaf : "The structural growth in Steginoporella rhodanica
(bryozoa, cheilostomata). (This work is published in Docum.
Fac. Sci. Lyon, n° 60, 1974).
G. Hilmer and J. Kazmierczak : "Sponge nature of some Cretaceous
C. Nielsen and J. Rostgoard : "On structure and function
of the entoproct tentacle".

H. Ristedt : "Morphology and skeletal structure of some Membranipora

accumulation of observed data is essential and continues to be
of central interest to bryozoologists. It is certain that this
volume serves both to consolidate knowledge of phylum and to open
new fields for future research on the Bryozoa by both palaeontologists
