These interpretations fit with sedimentologic, paleoecologic, taphonomic and ichnologic evidence for depth-related paleoenvironmental parameters.
On the basis of this later published work and in the context of associated sedimentologic, taphonomic, and ichnologic information, we formally describe and reinterpret the New Brunswick hypothesized medusae.
Addressing some of the many questions that remain concerning the phases of glaciation during the Late Paleozic ice age (LPIA), the nine articles of this collection explore either the sedimentologic, paleoenvironmnental and paleoclimatic aspects of the glacial events, or their paleobiologic aspects.
