The oldest Zoophycos and implications for Early Cambrian deposit feeding
Abstract Zoophycos-group burrows are prevalent elements of the post-Cambrian trace fossil record. Here we report the oldest specimens of Zoophycos from Lower Cambrian strata of the Lower Member Wood
VERTEBRATE BURROW SYSTEM FROM THE UPPER TRIASSIC OF POLAND
Abstract In this paper we report on a rare fossil vertebrate burrow system in Upper Triassic (Norian) fluvial deposits of the Holy Cross Mountains in central Poland. The burrows are preserved mainly
DEAD IN THEIR TRACKS—CAMBRIAN ARTHROPODS AND THEIR TRACES FROM INTERTIDAL SANDSTONES OF QUEBEC AND WISCONSIN
Abstract The large euthycarcinoid arthropod Mictomerus melochevillensis from the middle Cambrian-Furongian Potsdam Group of Quebec occurs as three-dimensional casts at the end of Cruziana- and
EARLY MOLLUSCAN EVOLUTION: EVIDENCE FROM THE TRACE FOSSIL RECORD
Abstract Trace fossils extend the history of early molluscan evolution because they have a higher preservation potential in siliciclastic strata, where body fossils are rare or absent, and also
Ichnology: Organism-Substrate Interactions in Space and Time
Part I. Conceptual Tools and Methods: 1. The basics of ichnology 2. Taxonomy of trace fossils 3. Paleobiology of trace fossils 4. The ichnofacies model 5. The ichnofabric approach Part II. Spatial
Paleobiology of firmground burrowers and cryptobionts at a Miocene omission surface, Alcoi, SE Spain
Abstract. A well-preserved omission surface (sedimentary discontinuity) in an outcrop near Alcoi in southeastern Spain displays trace fossils and body fossils that reflect a dynamic benthic community
Locomotion and feeding trails produced by crabs
Trace fossils represent the biological activity of an organism in the form of trails, tracks, burrows, and borings in the geological record. Bilobate trails are known to be made by arthropod
Benthic Organisms and Environmental Reconstruction
When discussing diversity, marine geologists commonly emphasize foraminifers. However, mollusks also are highly diverse, and many or most of them are marine organisms. Quite commonly they serve as
Early Cambrian metazoans in fluvial environments, evidence of the non-marine Cambrian radiation: COMMENT
[Kennedy and Droser (2011)][1] proposed that the colonization of non-marine depositional environments occurred much earlier than previously thought. Prior sedimentological interpretation of the
Early Cambrian metazoans in fluvial environments, evidence of the non-marine Cambrian radiation
[Davies and Gibling (2012)][1] raise concerns that sediments hosting trace fossils in the early Cambrian middle member of the Wood Canyon Formation, which we have interpreted as fluvial, may be
