Abstract Ichnological studies are exceptionally important for reconstruction of ecosystems in the aftermath of mass extinctions, but they have only rarely been undertaken from strata deposited in continental settings during the Permian–Triassic transition. This paper systematically documents seventeen ichnogenera and three ichno-types coupled with plant fossils (mainly equisetaceous stems and roots) from the fluvial–lacustrine Late Permian to Middle Triassic Shichuanhe section in North China. Th...

Abstract The Smithian/Spathian boundary (SSB) represents a major climatic-oceanic-biotic event within the ~5-Myr-long recovery interval of the Early Triassic following the end-Permian mass extinction. The SSB was associated with pronounced cooling following the middle Smithian hyper-greenhouse, a ~ +2 to +8‰ positive carbon isotope excursion, and a second-order mass extinction, yet its underlying cause(s) remain poorly understood. Here, we review oceanic environmental changes during the middle S...

Eleven conodont zones are established for the Lower Triassic of the Motianling section in the Nanpanjiang Basin, South China. Detailed size measurements on 2244 P 1 conodont elements demonstrate dynamic size variation patterns during the Early Triassic that are calibrated to the Early Triassic timescale and conodont zonation. Correlation of conodont size variation with various environmental indicators show that these size changes are primarily controlled by rapidly changing and episodic environm...

Abstract The tectonic history of the Yangtze block of South China prior to the Ediacaran Period has been a matter of debate. In particular, the tectonic history of the Shennongjia terrane in the central-northern margin of the Yangtze block is poorly understood, and the tectonic relationship between the Shennongjia terrane and the Huangling massif (exposed in the Huangling anticline) is unclear. Previous researchers have reported U-Pb dates of detrital zircons and Nd isotopic compositions of clas...

Abstract Shallow carbonate platforms exhibit major changes in faunal composition and facies types during the latest Permian and earliest Triassic. Although the microbialites that developed following the latest Permian mass extinction (LPME) have attracted wide attention, temporal variations in shallow-platform facies and faunas prior to the LPME have been less thoroughly studied. Here, we analyze diversity patterns and variation in skeletal composition in three Upper Permian sections from isolat...

Abstract Immediately after the latest Permian mass extinction, bivalve faunas colonized the Permian-Triassic Transitional Beds (PTTB), especially in littoral clastic facies of South China. The Permian-Triassic (P-Tr) transitional bivalve fauna is composed of holdovers, long-term survivors and newly evolved taxa, and characterized by moderate diversity and high dominance. However, the taxonomy and ecology of this bivalve fauna of littoral clastic facies have not been well understood, especially i...

Abstract Global warming is inferred to have been one of the main causes of the Permian-Triassic (P-Tr) boundary mass extinction. Although a strong temperature rise in tropical sea-surface temperatures during the latest Permian has been documented, coeval climate changes in terrestrial sections are less well-known. Here, we analyzed multiple weathering indexes (including CIA, CIW, and PIA) for two terrestrial sections in North China (Shichuanhe and Yima), all of which show a major excursion towar...

The upper Ediacaran Miaohe Member (∼551 Ma) in South China contains exceptionally preserved macroscopic carbonaceous compression fossils that provide a crucial view of the marine ecosystem shortly before the Cambrian explosion. However, these fossils were previously known only from one locality near the Miaohe Village on the northern bank of the Yangtze River. It was puzzling that equivalent strata a short distance away contained no fossils, raising questions about the environmental, ecological ...

New fossil data from two Early Triassic (Griesbachian to Dienerian) sections from South China show unusually high levels of both benthic and nektonic taxonomic richness occurring in the late Griesbachian. In total, 68 species (including 26 newly originated species) representing mollusks, brachiopods, foraminifers, conodonts, ostracods, and echinoderms occur in the late Griesbachian, indicating well-established and relatively complex marine communities. Furthermore, the nekton shows higher origin...

Abstract Forty-four well-preserved specimens of Kouphichnium , a typical limuloid (horseshoe crab) trackway, are reported and systematically studied for the first time from continental Upper Permian to Lower Triassic successions in North China. A new ichnotaxonomic system of Kouphichnium is proposed according to the ichnotaxobase of limuloid trackways, including simple foot imprints (T), pusher imprints (P), median impressions (M) and genal spine impressions (GS). In total, one ichnogenus and si...
