Wanted: 'Obscure' 1889 Paper on Trilobite Eyes & The Fibonacci Series
In fact I would be grateful for any information regarding the appearance of the fibonacci series in the lens arrangement of trilobite eyes!
If you know the citation (or better still, have a copy) then please email me or post here.
NB This isn't the paper I'm looking for:
CLARKE, J. M. 1889. The structure and development of the visual area in the trilobite Phacops rana Green. Journal of Morphology, 2:253270.)
Finally, I emailed Niles Eldredge and he said "I've lost touch with it [the paper]--journal such as American Naturalist..". I don't have a subsciption to Jstor but someone did a search of American Naturalist on my behalf but couldn't find anything ('sigh').
