The range of Treptichnus pedum, the index trace fossil for the Treptichnus pedum Zone, extends some 4 m below the Global Standard Stratotype-section and Point for the base of the Cambrian Period at Fortune Head on the Burin Peninsula in southeastern Newfoundland. The identification of zigzag traces of Treptichnus isp., even further below the GSSP than T. pedum in the Fortune Head section, and in other terminal Proterozoic successions around the globe, supports the concept of a gradational onset…

their distribution in space and time (Seilacher 2007). They not only document the lifestyle of the producers but also help in the interpretation of the associated environments. In the absence of
Ichnological evidence for the Cambrian explosion in the Ediacaran to Cambrian succession of Tanafjord, Finnmark, northern Norway
Abstract The Ediacaran to Cambrian transition of the Digermul Peninsula consists of an ichnologically rich, thick, conformable, shallow marine siliciclastic succession that crosses the
Abstract:  The Cambrian index fossil Treptichnus pedum is reported from the Puerto Blanco Formation near Pitiquito, Sonora, Mexico, and new occurrences of the Neoproterozoic index fossil Cloudina are
Ediacaran macrofossils prior to the ~580 Ma Gaskiers glaciation in Newfoundland, Canada
Macrofossils of the inferred protist‐grade organism Palaeopascichnus linearis occur stratigraphically beneath glacial diamictites of the ~580 Ma, Gaskiers‐equivalent, Trinity ‘facies’ of the Rocky
Ichnostratigraphy of the Ediacaran-Cambrian boundary: new insights on lower Cambrian biozonations from the Soltanieh Formation of northern Iran
Abstract. Strata in the Central Alborz Mountains, northern Iran, are interpreted to show continuous sedimentation from Ediacaran through Cambrian times. The Soltanieh Formation consists of five
A complex trace fossil from the Spitskop Member (terminal Ediacaran–? Lower Cambrian) of southern Namibia
Streptichnus narbonnei igen. et isp. nov., a new trace fossil from the upper part of the Spitskop Member of the Urusis Formation, southern Namibia, consists of clusters of unidirectionally curved
Organic‐walled microfossils from the Ediacaran–Cambrian boundary stratotype section, Chapel Island and Random formations, Burin Peninsula, Newfoundland, Canada: Global correlation and significance for the evolution of early complex ecosystems
Although a variety of trace and body fossils have been described from the Cambrian strata in the stratotype section (global stratotype section and point) of the Precambrian–Cambrian boundary in the
Environmental tolerance and range offset of Treptichnus pedum: Implications for the recognition of the Ediacaran-Cambrian boundary
The Ediacaran-Cambrian boundary, arguably the most important in the stratigraphic column, is based on the first appearance of the ichnospecies Treptichnus pedum . However, most trace fossils have


A candidate stratotype for the Precambrian-Cambrian boundary, Fortune Head, Burin Peninsula, southeastern Newfoundland
The Burin Peninsula exhibits an exceptionally thick and essentially continuous succession of marine strata through the Precambrian–Cambrian transition. Fossils are abundant and include trace fossils,
Precambrian-Cambrian boundary global stratotype ratified and a new perspective of Cambrian time
The Precambrian-Cambrian boundary global stratotype is the base of the Phycodes pedum Zone at Fortune Head, southeastern Newfoundland. The initial, two-stage radiation of the Phanerozoic fauna (the
Teichichnus Seilacher 1955 and other trace fossils (Cambrian?) from the Charnian of Central England.
Abstract: The discovery of intense bioturbation with ichnofabrics characterized by Teichichnus indicates a probable Cambrian age for the Swithland Formation of the Brand Group, the highest unit of
Trace fossils and biofabrics at the Precambrian–Cambrian boundary interval in western Mongolia
Abstract A small suite of trace fossils from the Zavkhan Basin (Govi-Altay) includes many of the ichnotaxa typical of the Nemakit-Daldynian, Tommotian and younger Cambrian stages, and other
When the worm turned: Concordance of Early Cambrian ichnofabric and trace-fossil record in siliciclastic rocks of South Australia
Studies of sedimentary fabrics and trace fossils across the Precambrian-Cambrian interval in South Australia demonstrate that the appearance of Treptichnus pedum , which defines the base of the
The Placentian Series: Appearance of the Oldest Skeletalized Faunas in Southeastern Newfoundland
The lowest Cambrian of Avalon, or Placentian Series, is a relatively thick sequence (1,400 m) in southeastern Newfoundland. A newly proposed body fossil zonation supplements an existing trace fossil
Fossils found in the Pre-Cambrian Conception Group of South-eastern Newfoundland
THE Biscay Bay–Cape Race area of the southern end of the Avalon Peninsula, south-eastern Newfoundland (Figs. 1 and 2), was mapped by one of us (S. B. M.) during the summer of 1967; it was found to be
Precambrian-Cambrian transition: Death Valley, United States
The Death Valley region contains one of the best exposed and often visited Precambrian-Cambrian successions in the world, but the chronostratigraphic framework necessary for understanding the
Facies and sequence controls on the appearance of the Cambrian biota in southwestern Mongolia: implications for the Precambrian–Cambrian boundary
Abstract Neoproterozoic–Cambrian rocks of the Zavkhan Basin (Govi-Altay, western Mongolia) comprise large-scale alternations of siliciclastic- and carbonate-dominated units (cf. ‘Grand Cycles’).
The youngest Ediacaran fossils from southern Africa.
The discovery of fossils of the Ediacara biota near the top of the Spitzkopf Member at farm Swanpunt extends the known range of these remains in Namibia more than 600 m to near the sub-Cambrian unconformity and provides support for the concept of the "Vendobionta" as a late Neoproterozoic group of mainly multifoliate organisms with a distinctive quilted segmentation.
