Biography Irina Mikhailova
Born June 10, 1929. G. Cherepovets, Vologda region. Graduated from the Geological Faculty of Moscow State University (1952).
Doctor of Geological and Mineralogical Sciences (1981). Professor of Palaeontology Geological Faculty (1987)
. A member of a specialized council on paleontology and stratigraphy at Moscow State University (1975), Paleontological Institute RAS (1985).
. Winner of prizes MOIP (1983) for the collective monograph Urgonskie deposits Soviet Carpathians; (1986) for the monograph system and phylogeny of Cretaceous ammonoids.
. Research Interests: still a student expressed interest in the study of a group of minerals - ammonoideyam, which was dedicated to her thesis, and in subsequent dissertations and research
. Studied the ontogeny of Cretaceous ammonites, has reviewed the system and the phylogeny of higher taxa. Showed that the development can go as ammonoids from monomorphic to geteromorfam, and vice versa. Based on the study of ontogeny of Cretaceous ammonoids established types of evolutionary change blade line, which allowed to justify the reality of separation and possible kinship relationships of all taxa company officer and nadsemeystvennogo rank. Construct a system in which the main link is determined by the characteristics ranneontogeneticheskogo development - building prosutury and primasutury, manner and place for laying the new elements. Refined zonal scheme of the Aptian deposits of the southern USSR and held wide-ranging regional and interregional correlations. The focus of the stratigraphic studies drew on the support podyarusnogo and zonal division of the Lower Cretaceous deposits of the Caucasus, the Crimea, Mangyshlak, Kopetdag. Topic of Ph.D. thesis: Families Parahoplitidae Spath and Deshayesitidae from the Lower Cretaceous sediments of the North Caucasus. Subject doctoral dissertation: The system and phylogeny of Cretaceous ammonoids.
To teach more than 40 years. Gives lectures Paleontology. Practice on the fauna of the sea at the biological station of the biological faculty of the White Sea. For many years, took part in the conduct of the Crimean geological practice.
She has published over 115 scientific papers on Cretaceous ammonoideyam and biostratigraphy of the Lower Cretaceous south of the USSR, as well as general issues of Paleontology. Editor and author of several sections of a two-volume handbook Stratigraphy of the USSR. Cretaceous system.
