Around the world, scientists have noticed that the rocks above the Great Unconformity contain obvious fossils, like trilobites and brachiopods
, while those below do not.
However, in collaboration with colleagues he has been studying various fossil groups such as chitinozoans, acritarchs, brachiopods
, conodonts, early vertebrates, tabulate corals, stromatoporoids and other typical members of Palaeozoic faunas.
It is only one-meter thick dolomite bed which shows the abundance of recrystallized shells of brachiopods
The end-Permian mass extinction played a pivotal role in the reversal of taxonomic and numerical dominance of the brachiopods
, crinoids, and corals ( i.e.
, Western Tethys, Early Jurassic, palaeobiogeography, mass extinction, faunal turnovers
, sipunculans, enteropneusts and metals from two estuarine tidal flats, Pacific, Costa Rica.
The most common of these are crinoids (sea lilies), snails, clam-like brachiopods
, and ancestors of today's squids that had shells back then.
* Ordovician extinction - It was a time when the earth was dominated by sea creatures such as trilobites, brachiopods
