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… Expand
Biotic recovery after the end-Triassic extinction event: Evidence from marine bivalves of the Neuquén Basin, Argentina
Abstract We analyze the Late Triassic extinction and Early Jurassic recovery of bivalve faunas within marine environments in the Atuel River area of the Neuquen Basin, Argentina. Data were collectedExpand
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-TethyanExpand
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 RhaetianExpand
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 annihilatedExpand
A two-phase end-Triassic mass extinction
Abstract The end-Triassic mass extinction was one of the big five crises of the fossil record. It affected diverse marine groups, including bivalves, brachiopods, ostracods, calcareous algae,Expand
Coping between crises: Early Triassic-early Jurassic bivalve diversity dynamics
Abstract The Triassic is bounded by two of the most severe biotic crises, but nevertheless this time was, for bivalves, both a recovery and a diversification period, and a moment to fully exploitExpand
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 potentialExpand
How quick was marine recovery after the end-Triassic mass extinction and what role did anoxia play?
Oxygen restricted conditions were widespread in European shelf seas after the end-Triassic mass extinction event and they are reported to have hindered the recovery of marine benthos. Here weExpand
POST-EXTINCTION BIOFACIES OF THE FIRST CARBONATE RAMP OF THE EARLY JURASSIC (SINEMURIAN) IN NE PANTHALASSA (NEW YORK CANYON, NEVADA, USA)
Abstract The end-Triassic mass extinction was global, severe, and accompanied by worldwide disturbance to carbonate ramp and platform sedimentation. We examine the earliest known Jurassic carbonateExpand
Competition in slow motion: the unusual case of benthic marine communities in the wake of the end‐Permian mass extinction
TLDR
A hyperbolic diversification model is proposed, which accounts for the positive relationship between the intensity of interspecific competition and the rate of niche differentiation and resolves the conundrum of delayed rediversification at a time when niche space was largely vacated. Expand

Triassic bivalves and the initial marine Mesozoic revolution: A role for predators?
TLDR
The data support earlier hypotheses that the recovery following the end-Permian extinction was very gradual and was not completed (in terms of both richness and ecologic complexity) until the Ladinian, and diversity slowly increased in the Middle Triassic and peaked in the Late Triassic. Expand
