  author={Andrey G. Sennikov and Valeriy K. Golubev},
  journal={Paleontological Journal},
Eastern Europe shows the most complete in the world continuous sequence of continental Permian and Triassic deposits, which allows the development of tetrapod faunas over more than 17 successive stages to be traced. The newly obtained data on transitional Vyazniki and Sundyr tetrapod faunas provide more complete characteristics of the Severodvinian (Late Guadalupian, pre-Lopingian) and Permian-Triassic ecological crises and the ways of replacement of the dominant vertebrate groups of Eastern…

The Late Permian ( Lopingian ) and Early Triassic flora of the Moscow Syneclise
The Late Permian (Lopingian) and Early Triassic successions of the Moscow Syneclise have been studied in twenty localities. We recognized of two phases of development of the Late Permian flora.
A New Primitive Therocephalian (Theromorpha) from the Middle Permian of Eastern Europe
The largest East European scylacosaurid therocephalian Julognathus crudelis gen. et sp. nov. is described based on materials from the middle Permian locality of Sundyr-1, Mari El Republic, Russia.

Abstract Extensive geological and paleontological materials from the upper Permian and the Lower Triassic of the East European Platform had been accumulated by the end of the 20th century. Recently

Abstract. The Moscow Syneclise on the East European Platform is an important area for the study of the continental biota of late Permian to Early Triassic age in continuous sections. This study

Lycosuchid therocephalian Gorynychus sundyrensis sp. nov. is described based on material from the middle Permian locality of Sundyr-1, Mari El Republic, Russia. Within the Sundyr tetrapod community,

Permian-Triassic vertebrate footprints from South Africa: Ichnotaxonomy, producers and biostratigraphy through two major faunal crises
Abstract The fossil record of mid to late Permian terrestrial vertebrates in the South African Karoo Basin is regarded as the most abundant and diverse in the world. Despite the extensive research on
Permo-Triassic tetrapods and their climate implications
Abstract The narrow active temperature ranges of ectothermic tetrapods can be used as proxies for reconstructing paleoclimates. Here we deduce the climatic preferences of major Permo-Triassic
Coprolite with Conchostracans from the Terminal Permian of Central Russia—Paleobiological and Stratigraphic Significance
Abstract The coprolite containing conchostracans from the terminal Permian Bykovka locality of Vyaznikovian tetrapod faunistic assemblage (the east of the Vladimir Region, Russia) are described for


The Faunal Assemblages of Permian Terrestrial Vertebrates from Eastern Europe
The scheme of the faunal assemblages of Permian terrestrial vertebrates from Eastern Europe is considered. The following faunal superassemblages are distinguished: (1) Eryopoidean Superassemblage,
Dinocephalian stage in the history of the Permian tetrapod fauna of Eastern Europe
The first tetrapods entered continental communities as consumers of the highest order, forming the subdominant and aquatic tetrapod communities. At the end of the Carboniferous, herbivorous tetrapods
Patterns of changes in Theromorph taxa of Permian terrestrial communities of Eastern Europe
The evolution of Late Permian tetrapod communities which include Theromorpha is examined in the territory of Eastern Europe. It is noteworthy that changes in the taxonomic composition of analogous
Evolution of the Permian and Triassic tetrapod communities of Eastern Europe
Abstract The Permo-Triassic terrestrial and freshwater tetrapod communities of Eastern Europe are reconstructed as food-webs. The Late Permian theriodont-dinocephalian community (Ocher, Mezen,
