  • A newly studied Permian-Triassic (P-Tr) boundary section in Jameson Land, East Greenland, contains an abundant and well-preserved marine fauna as well as terrestrial palynomorphs. For the first time it is possible to compare the biotic crises of the marine and terrestrial realms using the same samples from the same section. The sediments record a negative excursion in δ 13 C carb values of 8‰–9‰, and in δ 13 C org values of 10‰–11‰. The presence of the conodont Hindeodus parvus, combined with… CONTINUE READING
