Massive carbon emission caused marine anoxia and biodiversity loss 300 million years ago

  What would happen in the near future with continued global warming? What environmental conditions would the life on Earth most likely confront? The episodes of climate changes in the Earth’s deep past, similar to the current global warming, may provide valuable clues to these questions.
Linyi Lagerstatte: a new window on the Cambrian evolutionary fauna

  The rapid appearance of major animal groups and complex marine communities during the Cambrian explosion is recorded in large part in Burgess Shale-type lagerstatten. Nevertheless, most of the well-known Cambrian lagerstatten are restricted to a few terranes, with most of them occurring in S...
Distribution of Silurian Conodont closely Relate to Sea-level Changes

  Silurian (Telychian) conodont distribution on the Yangtze Platform of South China is quantitatively studied for the first time.
  Conodonts are of significant importance for global biostratigraphic correlation of strata containing Palaeozoic and Triassic marine faunas but this biostratigra...
Angiosperms go to the New Land

  A new angiosperm fruit, Dilcherifructus mexicana gen. et sp. nov, from the Middle Jurassic of Mexico. This is the currently earliest record of angiosperms in the North America, and its geographical position indicates that angiosperms were already widespread in the North Hemisphere during the...
First record of OAE 1b event in the Jiuquan Basin section

  The Cretaceous paleo-ocean has experienced multiple phases of Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs), which characterized by organic carbon enrichment, geochemical indicator anomalies and fossil assemblage changes. It includes three events, namely OAE 1, OAE 2 and OAE 3.
  Previous studies of OAE 1b...
The first show of direct linkage between intensified volcanism and immediate weathering

  Intensive volcanism has been considered a major driver of environmental/climatic changes throughout Earth history, including global warming due to excessive volcanogenic CO2 emission, acidification, ozone depletion etc., which in turn have been perceived important killing mechanisms of mass ...
