Post-Paleozoic crinoid radiation in response to benthic predation preceded the Mesozoic marine revolution
It has been argued that increases in predation over geological time should result in increases in defensive adaptations in prey taxa. Recent in situ and laboratory observations indicate that cidaroidExpand

Trends in shell fragmentation as evidence of mid-Paleozoic changes in marine predation
Abstract Recent observations indicate that shell fragmentation can be a useful tool in assessing crushing predation in marine communities. However, criteria for recognizing shell breakage caused byExpand

Bromalites from the Middle Triassic of Poland and the rise of the Mesozoic Marine Revolution
Abstract Durophagous predation has been an important cause of significant evolutionary changes in the history of life. One of the most dramatic predation-driven changes in marine ecosystems occurredExpand

Predator-induced macroevolutionary trends in Mesozoic crinoids
Sea urchins are a major component of recent marine communities where they exert a key role as grazers and benthic predators. However, their impact on past marine organisms, such as crinoids, is hardExpand

Putative Late Ordovician land plants.
The colonization of early terrestrial ecosystems by embryophytes (i.e. land plants) irreversibly changed global biogeochemical cycles (Berner & Kothavala, 2001; Berner et al., 2007; Song et al.,Expand
