More free Russian monographs and books online

Ben Creisler

Here are some additional Russian monographs and books that I have
found available to download for free online.



Additional vert-paleo material from the GeoKniga site. Again, these
need to be downloaded by right-clicking on the link to the pdf or djvu
file toward the bottom of the page.


After more searching with different queries, I found a number of
Russian books and monographs on fossil fish:

>From the Darwin Museum website:

V. G. Ochev memorial volume 2009 pdf

Shishkin, M. A.  & and Tverdokhlebov, V. P (eds.) (2009). Memories of
Professor Vitalii Georgievich Ochev (1931-2004). Nauchnaya Kniga

The pdf can be searched and copied (so text can be pasted into online
translation tools).

NOTE: The volume contains descriptions of a number of new fossil fish
taxa (including the genera Arctovitalia, Moltenia, Kapokichthys) that
do no show up in any of the online zoological and paleontological
databases I checked.

Includes a biography, list of publications, and various papers on
vertebrate paleontology topics with English title and abstract for
each paper.
