In Russia, the terminal Neoproterozoic formally includes the Vendian of western part of the East European platform and the concurrent Yudoma Group of Siberia. As is shown in this work, the designated subdivisions correspond in the stratotypes only to the upper, Yudomian Series of the Vendian. In the Siberian platform, the Ust-Yudoma and Aim horizons of the Yudomian are tightly interrelated. The lower of them, bearing remains of Ediacaran Fauna, represents the Ediacarian Stage, whereas the upper… 
Facies and Paleogeographic Reconstructions of Vendian Postglacial Deposits in the Southeastern Nepa–Botuoba Anteclise
The work is based on extensive factual material, including a core collection and GIS data on 84 deep wells drilled in the southeastern Nepa–Botuoba anteclise (Siberian Platform). Lithological studies
New biostratigraphical constraints on the lower Cambrian Ratcliffe Brook Formation, southern New Brunswick, Canada, from organic-walled microfossils
Organic-walled microfossils from the Ratcliffe Brook Formation of southern New Brunswick enable recognition of the three lowest Cambrian acritarch-based zones established in southeastern Poland and
The Lower Boundary of the Vendian in the Southern Urals as Evidenced by the Rb–Sr Age of Glauconites of the Bakeevo Formation
Abstract —This work presents the results of the mineralogical, crystallochemical, and geochronological study of globular phyllosilicates (GPS) of glauconite–illite series from the Bakeevo Formation.
The earliest Cambrian record of animals and ocean geochemical change
The Cambrian diversification of animals was long thought to have begun with an explosive phase at the start of the Tommotian Age. Recent stratigraphic discoveries, however, suggest that many taxa
A deep root for the Cambrian explosion: Implications of new bio- and chemostratigraphy from the Siberian Platform
Much uncertainty remains as to the temporal relationship between the Ediacaran and Cambrian biotas, yet this is critical to our understanding of the rise of metazoans. Here we present new

What is pre-life? We have no idea, since it is hidden in chemical molecules that conceal its future genetic potential. From the biological standpoint, a prokaryotic cyanobacteria cell represents a
Integrated stratigraphical framework for the Vendian complex of southern Siberian Craton
Vendian deposits are widely distributed in the south of Siberian Craton. They represent disparate sedimentary environments, have different composition and variable stratigraphic completeness. A
Isotopic (Sm–Nd, Pb–Pb, and δ34S) and Geochemical Characteristics of the Metasedimentary Rocks of the Baikal–Patom Belt (Northern Transbaikalia) and Evolution of the Sedimentary Basin in the Neoproterozoic
This paper reports the results of a detailed isotopic (Sm–Nd, Pb–Pb, and δ34S) and geochemical studies of Neoproterozoic metasedimentary rocks from the Patom and Bodaibo domains of the Baikal–Patom


The Vendian System of Siberia and a standard stratigraphic scale
Abstract In Siberia Vendian is equated with a Yudoma Complex or Yudomian. Yudomian deposits of the Siberian Platform and adjacent geosynclines differ greatly in facies and thickness. According to the

Abstract The northeastern and eastern margin of the East European Craton exposes numerous Riphean and Vendian (Meso- and Neoproterozoic) sedimentary successions that were deposited in alluvial and
Biostratigraphy of the Vendian-Cambrian beds and the lower Cambrian boundary in Siberia
Abstract General agreement exists that the position of the base of the Cambrian (Precambrian–Cambrian boundary) should coincide with a biostratigraphic marker that can be widely traced and is linked
The Neoproterozoic Timanide Orogen of eastern Baltica
The Neoproterozoic Timanide Orogen of eastern Baltiea extends from the high Arctic to the southern Ural Mountains and represents significant crustal growth of the northeastern European continental
The Ediacaran Period: A New Addition to the Geologic Time Scale
The International Union of Geological Sciences has approved a new addition to the geologic time scale: the Ediacaran Period. The Ediacaran is the first Proterozoic period to be recognized on the
New constraints on the ages of Neoproterozoic glaciations in south China
The most complete Neoproterozoic successions in south China contain three diamictite intervals in the Changan, Tiesiao, and Nantuo Formations. The youngest and most widespread Nantuo glacial deposit
Global climates of the Vendian
The global climate of the Vendian has been the subject of considerable debate. In view of the diculties of stratigraphic correlations, the absence of reliably reconstructed positions of continents,
In situ U-Pb (Shrimp) dating of zircons from granosyenite of the Troitsk pluton, Kvarkush-Kamennogorsk Anticlinorium, central Urals
The Troitsk granosyenite pluton is located among the Neoproterozoic sedimentary sequences of the Kvarkush‐Kamennogorsk Anticlinorium on the western slope of the Urals. The sedimentary sequences
Paleobiology of the Neoproterozoic Svanbergfjellet Formation, Spitsbergen
A review of Proterozoic multicellular organisms reveals that a coenocytic grade of organization was common among early metaphytes and supports the view (that a cellularity is a derived condition in many ‘multicellular’ lineages).
