The Geological Society of America Geologic Time Scale
The Geological Society of America has sponsored versions of the geologic time scale since 1983. Over the past 30 years, the Geological Society of America Geologic Time Scale has undergone substantialExpand
Chapter 19 – The Cambrian Period
Abstract: Appearance of metazoans with mineralized skeletons, “explosion” in biotic diversity and disparity, infaunalization of the substrate, occurrence of metazoan Konservat Fossil-Lagerstatten,Expand
Trilobites in Paleozoic Predator-Prey Systems, and Their Role in Reorganization of Early Paleozoic Ecosystems
Predation is a fundamental ecological process that has profound effects on the morphology, distribution, abundance, and evolution of metazoans. The earliest verified records of predation date to theExpand
Advances in Cambrian stratigraphy and paleontology: Integrating correlation techniques, paleobiology, taphonomy and paleoenvironmental reconstruction
Papers resulting from the Fourth International Symposium on the Cambrian System, held in Nanjing, China, in 2005 cover three major aspects of geology and paleontology: (1) the developing globalExpand
Reevaluation of the timing and extent of late Paleozoic glaciation in Gondwana: Role of the Transantarctic Mountains
Evidence from Antarctica indicates that a 2000-km-long section of the Transantarctic Mountains—including Victoria Land, the Darwin Glacier region, and the central Transantarctic Mountains—was notExpand
Trilobite malformations and the fossil record of behavioral asymmetry
Study of healed injuries of polymeroid trilobites shows that injuries attributed to sublethal predation tend to be most commonly preserved on the pleural lobes, the posterior half of the body, and the right side. Expand
The global boundary stratotype section and point (GSSP) of the drumian stage (Cambrian) in the drum mountains, Utah, USA
(GSSP) for the base of the Drumian Stage (Cambrian Series 3) is defined at the base of a limestone (calcisiltite) layer 62 m above the base of the Wheeler Formation in the Stratotype Ridge section,Expand
Global Standard Stratotype‐section and Point (GSSP) of the Furongian Series and Paibian Stage (Cambrian)
The Global Standard Stratotype-section and Point (GSSP) of the Furongian Series (uppermost series of the Cambrian System) and the Paibian Stage (lowermost stage of the Furongian Series), has beenExpand
Systematics, Paleobiology, and Taphonomy of Some Exceptionally Preserved Trilobites from Cambrian Lagerstätten of Utah
The presence of a mineralized alimentary tract and digestive glands in some specimens of Meniscopsia beebei and Coosella kieri suggests that the gut was fluid filled at the time of burial and that the species were predaceous. Expand
The Global Boundary Stratotype Section and Point (GSSP) of the Guzhangian Stage (Cambrian) in the Wuling Mountains, Northwestern Hunan, China
The Global boundary Stratotype Section and Point (GSSP) for the base of the Guzhangian Stage (Cambrian Series 3) is defined at the base of a limestone (calcisiltite) layer 121.3 m above the base ofExpand
