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 appeared in the older Nemakit-Daldynian Age, and that the diversification was more gradual. We map lowest Cambrian (Nemakit-Daldynian through Tommotian) records of δ 13 C CaCO 3 variability from Siberia, Mongolia, and China onto a Moroccan U/Pb–δ 13 C CaCO 3 age model constrained by five U/Pb ages from… Expand
