Abstract The supercontinent Pangea was mainly formed during the Permian, but when it reached maximum land is unsure because the configuration of the East Asian blocks during the Permo-Triassic is still highly debated. Fossil tetrapods provide one of the best calibrations to the time of connection between continents, but the data of Permo-Triassic tetrapods have rarely been applied in the previous reconstructions. Here we review the oldest records of non-marine tetrapods on the East Asia blocks…

Abstract The paleogeographic evolution of the North Qiangtang Block during the Middle and Late Permian has been a contentious issue in recent decades. In this study, the Permian foraminiferal faunas
Provenance of upper Permian–Triassic sediments in the south of North China: Implications for the Qinling orogeny and basin evolution
Abstract The Triassic Qinling Orogenic Belt was formed during the closure of the Paleo-Tethys Ocean, and its evolution can be traced by provenance analysis of sediments in the south of North China.
The source and tectonic setting of the Changhsingian K-bentonites in the Huaying Mountain region, South China
Abstract Numerous volcanic ash (or K-bentonite) beds are ubiquitous in the Permian-Triassic boundary (PTB) successions in South China and are conjectured to have been a critical factor in global

ABSTRACT Permian dicynodonts were discovered in strata exposed on the flanks of the Bogda Mountains (Xinjiang, China) in 1928. Nearly all known specimens were collected in the Guodikeng Formation (=
The youngest occurrence of embolomeres (Tetrapoda: Anthracosauria) from the Sunjiagou Formation (Lopingian, Permian) of North China
It is hypothesize that the dispersal and decline of the embolomeres from Carboniferous to late Permian (Lopingian) is related to the climate changes, especially aridification, of the paleotropical regions.
Carboniferous tetrapod footprint biostratigraphy, biochronology and evolutionary events
The Carboniferous record of tetrapod footprints is mostly of Euramerican origin and provides the basis for a footprint biostratigraphy and biochronology of Carboniferous time that identifies four


Geological reconstructions of the East Asian blocks: From the breakup of Rodinia to the assembly of Pangea
Abstract Pangea is the youngest supercontinent in Earth's history and its main body formed by assembly of Gondwana and Laurasia about 300–250 Ma ago. As supported by voluminous evidence from reliable
Late Triassic and Early Jurassic palaeogeography of the world
Abstract A new version of global and regional palaeogeographic maps is presented for two time intervals. These maps depict the plate tectonic configuration, palaeoenvironment and lithofacies during
Opening of the Neo-Tethys Ocean and the Pangea B to Pangea A transformation during the Permian
We studied the stratigraphy, composition, and paleomagnetic properties of lateritic weathering profiles of Permian age from northern Iran and western Karakoram, Pakistan. A limited set of samples
New age constraints for the Middle Triassic archosaur Lotosaurus: Implications for basal archosaurian appearance and radiation in South China
Abstract Archosaurians were the dominant terrestrial tetrapods during the Mesozoic and became one of the most successful tetrapod clades on Earth following the end-Permian mass extinction. The lower
A review of the Guadalupian (middle Permian) global tetrapod fossil record
Abstract Until recently, the Guadalupian (middle Permian) tetrapod fossil record was known almost exclusively from the Karoo Basin of South Africa and the Cis-Urals region of Russia, limiting
The marine Permian of East and Northeast Asia: an overview of biostratigraphy, palaeobiogeography and palaeogeographical implications
Abstract The Permian marine biostratigraphy, faunal successions and mutual correlations (where possible) throughout East and Northeast Asia are synthesized, region by region, based on both published
Triassic deformation of Permian Early Triassic arc-related sediments in the Beishan (NW China): Last pulse of the accretionary orogenesis in the southernmost Altaids
Abstract The Beishan orogenic collage (BOC) in the southernmost Altaids provides evidence of the final stage of evolution of the Paleo-Asian Ocean. However, the closure time of the Paleo-Asian Ocean
Closure of the East Paleotethyan Ocean and amalgamation of the Eastern Cimmerian and Southeast Asia continental fragments
Abstract The Phanerozoic record of Southeast Asia preserves the history of opening and subsequent consumption of the Paleotethyan Ocean and the assembly of continental fragments into Asia as part of
Paleomagnetic constraints on the tectonic history of the major blocks of China duing the Phanerozoic
Paleomagnetic study of China and its constraints on Asia tectonics has been a hot spot. Some new paleomagnetic data from three major blocks of China. North China Block (NCB), Yangtze Block (YZB) and
