A Synoptical Classification of the Bivalvia (Mollusca)
Preface This classification summarizes the suprageneric taxonomy of the Bivalvia for the upcoming revision of the Bivalvia volumes of the Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology, Part N.
Recovery of benthic marine communities from the end‐Permian mass extinction at the low latitudes of eastern Panthalassa
Based on the quantitative community analysis using species‐level identifications, we track the restoration of benthic ecosystems after the end‐Permian mass extinction throughout the Lower Triassic of
Catastrophic ocean acidification at the Triassic-Jurassic boundary
Palaeobotanical and geochemical evidence indicate a sudden rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) across the Triassic-Jurassic boundary, probably reflecting the combined effect of extensive
Bivalves from the Olenekian (Early Triassic) of south-western Utah: systematics and evolutionary significance
The recovery from the end-Permian mass extinction event was a key interval in the history of life, but few modern studies provide systematic data on benthic marine faunas from the epoch immediately
Effect of end-Triassic CO2 maximum on carbonate sedimentation and marine mass extinction

Correlation of stratigraphic sections from different continents suggests a worldwide interruption of carbonate sedimentation at the Triassic–Jurassic boundary, which coincided with one of the most
Palaeoecology of the Spathian Virgin Formation (Utah, USA) and Its Implications for the Early Triassic Recovery
The Spathian (late Early Triassic) Virgin Formation of south-western Utah (USA) yields a comparatively diverse benthic fauna that flourished ∼2 Ma after the end-Permian mass extinction. In this
A New Paleoecological Look at the Dinwoody Formation (Lower Triassic, Western USA): Intrinsic Versus Extrinsic Controls on Ecosystem Recovery After the End-Permian Mass Extinction
The paleoecological analysis shows that the oldest Dinwoody communities are characterized by low diversity, low ecological complexity and high dominance of few species, suggesting that the well-known prevalence of generalized taxa in post-extinction faunas is primarily an effect of reduced competition that allows species to exist through the full range of their fundamental niches.
