U-Pb zircon dates from volcanic ash beds within the Doushantuo Formation (China) indicate that its deposition occurred between 635 and 551 million years ago, indicating synchronous deglaciation.

Abstract The Sinian (Terminal Proterozoic) and Early Cambrian shallow- to deep-water sequences of the Yangtze Platform were investigated. Based on integrated lithostratigraphic, biostratigraphic, and…
Carbon isotope chemostratigraphy and sedimentary facies evolution of the Ediacaran Doushantuo Formation in western Hubei, South China
Rise to modern levels of ocean oxygenation coincided with the Cambrian radiation of animals
New molybdenum isotope data are presented that demonstrate that the areal extent of oxygenated bottom waters increased in step with the early Cambrian bioradiation of animals and eukaryotic phytoplankton, marking the first establishment of a key environmental factor in modern-like ecosystems.

Decimetre-scale multicellular eukaryotes from the 1.56-billion-year-old Gaoyuzhuang Formation in North China
The discovery of macroscopic fossils from the 1,560-Myr-old Gaoyuzhuang Formation, Yanshan area, North China, that exhibit both large size and regular morphology provide the strongest evidence yet that multicellular eukaryotes with decimetric dimensions and a regular developmental program populated the marine biosphere at least a billion years before the Cambrian Explosion.
