|Reconstruction of trilobite ancestral range|
The macro and micro invertebrate fauna present in intracratonic basins of Paraná, Amazonas and Parnaíba are relatively well studied and documented in the literature in general. However, the northwest, north and south borders of the Paraná Basin, which covers the states of Mato Grosso, Goiás and Uruguay, are extremely poor in paleofauna studies. Recent papers show that during the late Ei...
The present project deals with the study of moulting patterns in trilobites of the Middle Devonian (Emsian-Eifelian) of the Paraná Basin, Brazil. In general, trilobites have their moulting accomplished by the breaking the libran of the cephalus. However, the phacopids of the Paraná Basin present a Salterian ecdise pattern consisting of the separation of the whole cephalum from the torax...
Bivalves are benthic animals used for the study of paleoautoecology due to their abundance in the geological record, their direct relation with the sedimentation rate and the presence of calcareous shells that facilitate preservation in the fossil record. Thus, they are important tools for the understanding of the depositional environment of the associated sedimentary packages and the e...
During the division of the Paraná Basin during the Devonian, the Alto Garças Sub-basin was deposited to the north of the basin, while the Apucarana Sub-basin was deposited to the south. The Alto Garças Sub-basin, which evolved in a shallower sedimentation environment with large amounts of sandstones and siltstones, is composed of Units 1, 2 (both of interest in the present study), 3 and...
The Jatobá Basin, part of the Recôncavo-Tucano-Jatobá rift has been stratigraphically correlated to the Araripe Basin. Both basins were deposited during the South Atlantic opening process that culminated in the separation between South America and Africa. Although there is an abundance of works related to the Araripe Basin, the same does not occur with the Jatobá Basin, which until now ...
