Pulsed oxidation and biological evolution in the Ediacaran Doushantuo Formation
Recent geochemical data from Oman, Newfoundland, and the western United States suggest that long-term oxidation of Ediacaran oceans resulted in progressive depletion of a large dissolved organicExpand

Three-dimensional preservation of algae and animal embryos in a Neoproterozoic phosphorite
Phosphorites of the late Neoproterozoic (570 ± 20 Myr BP) Doushantuo Formation, southern China, preserve an exceptional record of multicellular life from just before the Ediacaran radiation ofExpand

Stratigraphy and paleogeography of the Ediacaran Doushantuo Formation (ca. 635-551Ma) in South China
Abstract The Ediacaran Doushantuo Formation (ca. 635–551 Ma) in South China contains exceptionally well-preserved fossils of multicellular eukaryotes including early animals, and it is one of theExpand

MACROSCOPIC CARBONACEOUS COMPRESSIONS IN A TERMINAL PROTEROZOIC SHALE: A SYSTEMATIC REASSESSMENT OF THE MIAOHE BIOTA, SOUTH CHINA
Abstract Carbonaceous compression fossils in shales of the uppermost Doushantuo Formation (ca. 555–590 Ma) at Miaohe in the Yangtze Gorges area provide a rare Burgess-Shale-type taphonomic window onExpand

Permineralized fossils from the terminal Proterozoic Doushantuo Formation, south China
Permineralized fossils of the terminal Proterozoic (600-550 Ma) Doushantuo Formation, China, provide an unusually clear window on biological diversity just before the Ediacaran radiation. In theExpand

New constraints on the ages of Neoproterozoic glaciations in south China
The most complete Neoproterozoic successions in south China contain three diamictite intervals in the Changan, Tiesiao, and Nantuo Formations. The youngest and most widespread Nantuo glacial depositExpand

On the eve of animal radiation: phylogeny, ecology and evolution of the Ediacara biota.
Ediacara fossils document an important evolutionary episode just before the Cambrian explosion and hold critical information about the early evolution of macroscopic and complex multicellular life.Expand

High CO2 levels in the Proterozoic atmosphere estimated from analyses of individual microfossils
Solar luminosity on the early Earth was significantly lower than today. Therefore, solar luminosity models suggest that, in the atmosphere of the early Earth, the concentration of greenhouse gasesExpand

New Ediacara fossils preserved in marine limestone and their ecological implications
Ediacara fossils are central to our understanding of animal evolution on the eve of the Cambrian explosion, because some of them likely represent stem-group marine animals. However, some of theExpand
