    Excerpt from Bulletin of the Natural History Society of New Brunswick, Vol. 11: 1893

    To illustrate the past, let us take a brief survey of some peculiarities of existing climates by contrasting tropical marine life with the living beings of the northern seas; and also by observing the kinds of animals that characterize the shores as contrasted with those found in deep water.

    We will thus learn what kind of creatures are suited to warm water and on the other hand what other kinds prefer to live in the cold seas, and if we can prove by the distribution of the sea-animals in ancient times that there were areas of cold water, and others of warm water on the surface of the globe, we have shown the existence of varying climates on the land as well as in the sea; for I have only to call your attention to the well-known in¿uence of the Gulf Stream on the climate of Western Europe, to show what effect warm currents in the ocean will produce on the neighboring land.

    Certain broad features in which tropical marine life differs from that of northern seas are of a kind that might have left their impress on the animals of former geological ages, had these animals been constituted then, as their descendents are now. Such creatures, for instance, as the corals and the shell-fish (shelled molluscs), whose skeletons are composed of stony matter, would have left imperishable memorials of their existence, to show where these animals had ¿ourished, and also to certify us of the particular kinds which had once existed on the earth.
