Triassic climates — State of the art and perspectives
Abstract The climate of the Triassic period was characterized by a non-zonal pattern, dictated by a strong global monsoon system with effects that are most evident in the Tethys realm. This strongExpand
Eustatic and climatic control on the Upper Muschelkalk Sea (late Anisian/Ladinian) in the Central European Basin
The Upper Muschelkalk in the Central European Basin (CEB) is a key example of eustatic and climatic controls on inland seas. The late Anisian rapid transgression from Tethyan waters culminated in aExpand
Plant–insect interactions from Middle Triassic (late Ladinian) of Monte Agnello (Dolomites, N-Italy)—initial pattern and response to abiotic environmental perturbations
TLDR
These diverse Middle Triassic biota supply extensive evidence for insect herbivore colonization, resulting in specific and complex herbivory patterns involving the frequency and diversity of 20 distinctive damage types (DTs). Expand
TAPHONOMICAL IMPLICATIONS OF THE LADINIAN MEGAFLORA AND PALYNOFLORA OF THALE (GERMANY)
Abstract Paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatic conditions at Thale during the late Ladinian (Middle Triassic) are assessed using both the plant megaflora and palynoflora. These two datasets areExpand
Lycophytes from the Middle Triassic (Anisian) locality Kühwiesenkopf (Monte Prà della Vacca) in the Dolomites (northern Italy)
TLDR
Four different genera, each with one species, have been distinguished in the Anisian flora from Kuhwiesenkopf (Monte Pra della Vacca), Italy, and were well preserved and yielded leaf cuticles in all four taxa and in situ spores in two of them. Expand
MIDDLE TRIASSIC (ANISIAN) FERNS FROM KÜHWIESENKOPF (MONTE PRÁ DELLA VACCA), DOLOMITES, NORTHERN ITALY
TLDR
The description of the ferns found in the recently discovered Anisian locality of Kuhwiesenkopf (Monte Pra della Vacca) and a revision of the genera and species involved has been undertaken where necessary, with Anomopteris mougeotii Brongniart is unequivocally recorded for the first time from Italy. Expand
Permian ginkgophyte fossils from the Dolomites resemble extant O-ha-tsuki aberrant leaf-like fructifications of Ginkgo biloba L
TLDR
The hypothesis is that, at least for some groups of ginkgophytes represented by extant Ginkgo biloba, such sporophylls represent the ancestral state of fructifications, and some evidence is provided for the existence of ancestral laminar ginkinggophyte sporophyLLs. Expand
The Krasser collection in the Faculty of Sciences, Charles University, Prague – new insights into the Middle Jurassic flora of Sardinia
Abstract Revision of part of the Middle Jurassic flora of Sardinia, the Krasser collection, stored in Prague (Lovisato B collection), containing 23 fossil taxa of horsetails, ferns, cycadophytes,Expand
Late Permian (Lopingian) terrestrial ecosystems: A global comparison with new data from the low-latitude Bletterbach Biota
TLDR
It is shown that terrestrial ecosystems were structured and provincialised at high taxonomic levels by climate regions, and that latitudinal distribution is a key predictor of ecosystem compositional affinity. Expand
