TitleHill, Dorothy: certificate of election to the Royal Society
DescriptionCertificate of Election
CitationDistinguished for her researches on fossil corals, especially rygose corals, in which field she is the leading authority. Her numerous publications (about 60) constitute an outstanding contribution to the terminology, morphology, systematics and affinities of Palaeozoic corals and the stratigraphical sequence of Palaeozoic coral faunas. Her work has had considerable influence on the correlation of Upper Palaeozoic strata, especially in Australia. Noteworthy also are her papers on the geographical distribution of Ordovician, Silurian and Carboniferous faunas on a world basis. She was associated in the production of the 1954 geological map of Queensland and two large-scale sheets of areas in (Bureau Min Res) and was responsible for much of the description of cores for the Great Barrier Reef Report 1942.
