Engineering the Cambrian explosion: the earliest bioturbators as ecosystem engineers (2017)
Journal Article
Herringshaw, L. G., Callow, R. H. T., & McIlroy, D. (2017). Engineering the Cambrian explosion: the earliest bioturbators as ecosystem engineers. Geological Society Special Publications, 448(1), (369-382). doi:10.1144/sp448.18. ISSN 0305-8719

By applying modern biological criteria to trace fossil types and assessing burrow morphology, complexity, depth, potential burrow function and the likelihood of bioirrigation, we assign ecosystem engineering impact (EEI) values to the key ichnotaxa i... Read More

What does Ophiomorpha irregulaire really look like? (2015)
Journal Article
Leaman, M., McIlroy, D., Herringshaw, L., Boyd, C., & Callow, R. (2015). What does Ophiomorpha irregulaire really look like?. Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecology, 439, 38-49. doi:10.1016/j.palaeo.2015.01.022

Ophiomorpha irregulaire is a surprisingly poorly characterised ichnotaxon given its common occurrence in hydrocarbon reservoir facies. Current debate surrounds the ichnotaxobases suitable for ichnospecific-level identification and also the palaeogeog... Read More

Natural fractures in a United Kingdom shale reservoir analog, Cleveland Basin, northeast England (2014)
Journal Article
Imber, J., Armstrong, H., Clancy, S., Daniels, S., Herringshaw, L., McCaffrey, K., …Warren, C. (2014). Natural fractures in a United Kingdom shale reservoir analog, Cleveland Basin, northeast England. AAPG Bulletin, 98(11), 2411-2437. doi:10.1306/07141413144

Faults and fractures within the well-exposed Lower Jurassic Cleveland Ironstone and Whitby Mudstone Formations may provide insights into the tectonic history of gas-prospective, Mississippian shale in northern England. Subvertical opening mode fractu... Read More
