Abstract Scarcity of fossiliferous boundary sections makes the Triassic-Jurassic biotic crisis the most enigmatic of the five major Phanerozoic faunal turnovers. We report a bivalve-dominated level-bottom fauna from the Triassic-Jurassic transition in southern Tibet, which is unique for two reasons: (1) it documents the faunal turnover across the system boundary without major facies changes, and (2) it provides paleobiological data from the immediate postextinction interval. In the extinction… 
MACROFAUNAL RESPONSE TO THE END-TRIASSIC MASS EXTINCTION IN THE WEST-TETHYAN KÖSSEN BASIN, AUSTRIA
Abstract Bivalves are the most common macrofauna present in marine sequences spanning the end-Triassic mass extinction and document the initial ecological response to the crisis. In the west-Tethyan
Ecological signature of the end-Triassic biotic crisis: what do bivalves have to say?
In order to understand the causes underlying the Triassic–Jurassic (T/J) mass extinction, we tested different bivalve features for extinction selectivity, i.e. shell mineralogy, age at the Rhaetian
Extinction: End‐Triassic Mass Extinction
One of the five greatest mass extinction events in Earth's history occurred at the end of the Triassic, c. 200 million years ago. This event ultimately eliminated conodonts and nearly annihilated
Mass Extinctions and Changing Taphonomic Processes
The biotic crisis of the Middle Permian through Early Triassic is unmatched in the Phanerozoic in terms of taxonomic diversity losses and paleoecological reorganization. However, the potential

The Triassic–Jurassic (Tr–J) boundary marks a major extinction event, which (∼200 Ma) resulted in global extinctions of fauna and flora both in the marine and terrestrial realms. There prevail great
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
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

The biotic crisis of the Middle Permian through Early Triassic is unmatched in the Phanerozoic in terms of taxonomic diversity losses and paleoecological reorganization. However, the potential
