Abstract

Mr. H. L. ‘Hal’ Dixon (1941–2005) was an expert on Jamaican fossil echinoids who contributed to many publications on the Cretaceous and, mainly, Cenozoic geology and paleontology of the island. His research on the Upper Oligocene echinoderms of Jamaica was a particularly comprehensive study of fossils from an intractable limestone. His contribution to the research programs of other experts led to advancement in our knowledge of the Jamaican fossil record on a broad front, including such groups as decapod crustaceans (crabs), trace fossils, rudist bivalves and sirenians (sea cows).
