The onset of the Messinian salinity crisis in the Eastern Mediterranean (Pissouri Basin, Cyprus)
The Pissouri Basin in Cyprus contains one of the most suitable sedimentary successions with which to study the onset of the Messinian Salinity Crisis in the Eastern Mediterranean. Exposures along theExpand
The onset of the Messinian salinity crisis: Insights from Cyprus sections
Abstract The Neogene basins of Southern Cyprus provide a good opportunity to improve the knowledge of the paleoenvironmental changes involved in the triggering of the Messinian evaporite depositionExpand
Palaeogene climate evolution in the Paris Basin from oxygen stable isotope (δ18O) compositions of marine molluscs
The constraint of temperature evolution in coastal environments is an important factor in deciphering the Earth’s global climatic history. In this study, we reconstruct the evolution of sea-surfaceExpand
New Eocene Coleoid (Cephalopoda) Diversity from Statolith Remains: Taxonomic Assignation, Fossil Record Analysis, and New Data for Calibrating Molecular Phylogenies
New coleoid cephalopods are described from statolith remains from the Middle Eocene (Middle Lutetian) of the Paris Basin, indicating permanent aquatic settings in the infralittoral domain. Expand
Bivalves on mecochirid lobsters from the Aptian of the Isle of Wight: Snapshot on an Early Cretaceous palaeosymbiosis
The distribution of the bivalves on both sides of the crustaceans, their preservation and their downward growth orientation suggests no post-mortem attachment of the mollusks, and the association may be ascribed to a true palaeosymbiosis between these organisms. Expand
The molluscs of the “Falunière” of Grignon (Middle Lutetian, Yvelines, France): quantification of lithification bias and its impact on the biodiversity assessment of the Middle Eocene of Western
ABSTRACT Lithification is stressed as a major bias for the palaeobiodiversity evaluation. Although this bias is often discussed in the literature, it has rarely been quantified. This work offers aExpand
Iconography : Jsowerbya , new genus of Muricidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda) from the Eocene of the Paris (France) and Hampshire (England) basins with a phylogenetic assessment of its Ocenebrine versus
The species of Jsowerbya, often mistaken for the muricopsine genus Muricopsis, possess a unique combination of characters shared with the subfamilies Ocenebrinae and Ergalataxinae. Expand
Intense bone fluorescence reveals hidden patterns in pumpkin toadlets
It is shown that the origin of the fluorescence lies in the dermal bone of the head and back, visible through a particularly thin skin, and the luminescence properties of the toadlets’ bones are exceptionally fluorescent. Expand
UV Light Reveals the Diversity of Jurassic Shell Colour Patterns: Examples from the Cordebugle Lagerstätte (Calvados, France)
Fluorescent fossil shell colour patterns predating the oldest previously known instance of such patterns by 100 Myr are revealed, indicating a significant pre-Cenozoic diversification of colour patterns, especially in gastropods. Expand
Middle Lutetian climate in the Paris Basin: implications for a marine hotspot of paleobiodiversity
The present study reports the evolution of environmental conditions and seawater temperatures during the establishment of a marine hotspot of paleobiodiversity that took place in the Paris BasinExpand
