Conodonts are a homogeneous group. Basic interpretations must apply to all kinds of conodonts. Internal and outer morphologic features indicate that they were skeletal elements designed to lend a certain limited rigidity to an organ in which the maximation of surface area was an advantage. Conodonts show evidence of muscle insertion. Lower Carboniferous conodonts of similar morphological form occur at different horizons; they are interpreted as functional homeomorphs. There is a phylogenetic relationship between the following pairs of genera: Spathognathodus and Pseudopolygnathus, Polygnathus and Siphonodella, Polygnathus and Cavusgnathus, Spathognathodus and Gnathodus, .

Eight specimens representing four complete conodont animals have been recovered from Carboniferous sediments from central Montana. Book Chapter Conodont-Bearing Animals from the Bear Gulch Limestone, Montana Harold W. Scott, "Conodont-Bearing Animals from the Bear Gulch Limestone, Montana", Conodont Paleozoology, Frank H. T. A complete Carboniferous conodont sequence has been recognized and a preliminary biofacies framework has been established. It is now possible to recognize at least three broadly defined conodont biofacies at positions along an environmental gradient that includes basinal, outer shelf and inner shelf : Wang Chengyuan (王成源), Clark D L. This succinct treatise presents an up-to-date assessment on the nature and evolutionary development of a phylum of extinct marine invertebrates. Conodonts are represented by a diverse array of tiny tooth-like fossils, and are widely used in stratigraphical correlation. They are also vital in the search for petroleum because the colors of fossils brought up in drill cores .
The ultrastructure of 24 form-species of Ordovician conodonts has been examined with the scanning electron microscope. The conodonts represent two provincial and three subprovincial faunas and include hyaline forms, neurodonts (a subgroup of the hyalines), and cancellate forms (conodonts with white matter).

In the study of St. George Group conodonts, over 70 multielement species are represented in 45, conodont specimens from samples of 10 sections. Computer cluster analysis of most of those samples on the basis of similarity of conodont species was used to determine conodont community by: Ronald Leyshon Austin is the author of Conodont Paleozoology ( avg rating, 4 ratings, 0 reviews, published )/5(4).
