Paleoecology and paleoenvironments of Permian bivalves of the Serra Alta Formation, Brazil: Ordinary suspension feeders or Late Paleozoic Gondwana seep organisms?
(Journal Of South American Earth Sciences, 2017-08-01) [Artigo]
This is the first record of a Permian seep deposit and an associated, morphologically bizarre, bivalve-dominated fauna from the Passa Dois Group, Parana Basin, Brazil. Shales of the outer-shelf facies of the Serra Alta ...
Permian endemic bivalves of the Irati anoxic event, Parana Basin, Brazil: Taphonomical, paleogeographical and evolutionary implications
(Palaeogeography Palaeoclimatology Palaeoecology, 2017-03-01) [Artigo]
Anoxic to dysoxic conditions must have existed in the Parana Basin during the deposition of the Permian oil-bearing shales of the Irati Formation, reflecting the marine isolation of the basin from the Panthalassic Ocean. ...
A new Permian bivalve-dominated assemblage in the Rio do Rasto Formation, Parana Basin, Brazil: Faunal turnover driven by regional-scale environmental changes in a vast epeiric sea
(Journal Of South American Earth Sciences, 2015-12-01) [Artigo]
The basal portion of the Permian Rio do Rasto Formation (Serrinha Member), Passa Dois Group, Parana Basin, Brazil, records an entirely new bivalve fauna intercalated between the underlying Pinzonella neotropica assemblage ...
Cloudina-Corumbella-Namacalathus association from the Itapucumi Group, Paraguay: Increasing ecosystem complexity and tiering at the end of the Ediacaran
(Precambrian Research, 2017-09-01) [Artigo]
The intriguing Ediacaran fossil Namacalathus is described from limestones of the Tagatiya Guazu Formation, Itapucumi Group, Paraguay. This is the fifth occurrence of the genus in the Ediacaran geological record. The ...
Upper Aptian mixed carbonate-siliciclastic sequences from Tucano Basin, Northeastern Brazil: Implications for paleogeographic reconstructions following Gondwana break-up
(Cretaceous Research, 2016-12-01) [Artigo]
The evolution of the Cretaceous basins of the Brazilian northeastern hinterland was associated with the Gondwana rifting and opening of the South Atlantic Ocean. The first marine ingression in northeastern Brazil occurred ...
The interplay between event and background sedimentation and the origin of fossil-rich carbonate concretions: a case study in Permian rocks of the Paraná Basin, Brazil
(Lethaia, 2015) [Artigo]
The Permian Serra Alta Formation was generated under transgressive conditionswithin a large, calm epeiric sea. A monotonous succession of ‘barren’, massive mud-stones deposited under oxygen-deﬁcient conditions (mainly below ...
