Neues Jahrbuch fur Geologie und Palaontologie Monatshefte (Neues Jahrbuch Geol Palaontol Monatsh)

Journal description

Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie continuously publishes current original contributions from all fields of geology, ever since its foundation in 1806. Two journals are published under that title,namely Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie, Monatshefte (monthly) and Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie, Abhandlungen (more comprehensive papers). All published contributions are in the English language. We solicit the submission of original manuscripts from all fields of geology and paleontology, stratigraphy, sedimentology.

    ABSTRACT: The genus Eckastraea MORYCOWA, 1988 from the Middle Triassic of the Cracow-Upper Silesian region has been created on the basis of the holotype of Isastraea prisca WEISSERMEL, 1925. The systemical position of this genus was however, undetermined. The recent findings of better preserved specimens enabled to place the genus into the new family Eckastraeidae. This new family is closest to the family Margarophylliidae CUIF, 1977 belonging to the superfamily Volzeioidea suborder Caryophylliina.

    ABSTRACT: Verifiable remains of ornithischian dinosaurs are scarce in Upper Triassic sediments. An isolated tooth from the Rhaetic bone bed of Hallau, Switzerland, has previously been referred to the ornithischian clade Heterodontosauridae. We redescribe this tooth, demonstrating that it cannot be assigned to Ornithischia but does resemble enigmatic teeth from the Owl Rock Formation of North America and may represent a new taxon or clade of archosauriform reptiles. The identification of all other Late Triassic teeth from Europe previously assigned to Ornithischia is problematic, and we here regard these specimens as pertaining to Archosauriformes indet. Bone fragments from the Westbury Formation of England have been assigned to the ornithischian clade Stegosauria, but cannot be referred with certainty to any reptilian clade. There is no persuasive body fossil evidence for ornithischian dinosaurs in the Late Triassic of Europe; ornithischians may have been limited in diversity, abundance and geographical distribution during this time period, radiating only after the end of the Triassic.

    ABSTRACT: Wood remains, partly permineralised with goethite, are described from the Middle Buntsandstein (Lower Triassic) sandstones near Bad Karlshafen in N Germany. The permineralised material represents secondary wood and parenchymatic areas, which were probably located directly between areas of secondary wood. The permineralised material was found directly beneath an impression fossil belonging to the sphenophytes. At the moment, however, an organic connection between the sphenophyte remains and the permineralised material can not be proved unequivocally. Nevertheless, the anatomical details seen in our material do not contradict a potential affiliation with the Sphenophytes. Some observations on the preservation of the permineralised remains and the diagenesis of the permineralisation agent (goethite) are discussed. This leads to the hypothesis that the specimens were originally permineralised with pyrite (as evidenced by cubic pseudomorphoses) and that the goethite can probably be interpreted as a secondary oxidation product of pyrite and does not represent the primary permineralisation agent. Initial pyritisation was probably linked to microbial and maybe also fungal decay of the wood.

    ABSTRACT: Knowledge of the taphonomic processes involved in the formation of fossil plant deposits often plays a crucial role in palaeoecological and palaeoclimatological interpretations. However, conifers and conifer-dominated floras, which are abundant in European deposits from the Permian onward, did not receive much attention, except for those from some modern ecosystems and a few Late Palaeozoic deposits. In this study, which is based on empirical observations on more than 3000 conifer remains from a variety of European Late Permian localities, representing a variety of depositional settings, a taphonomic model is developed. This model proposes that in deposits from this period of time the mean size of conifer remains preserved in these deposits is due to both the potential mechanical energy of the depositional environment and the residency-time of the plant parts in water (- duration of decay). This is partly in contrast to previous authors, who assumed that large conifer fragments would regularly point to short distance transport, whereas small fragments would more likely point to long distance transport. However, several questions with respect to the taphonomy of these conifers remain unresolved since taphonomic studies on the putative modern equivalents of the fossil conifers that could be used for further comparison are missing so far.

    ABSTRACT: The incompletely preserved holotype of Prosopon hebes v. MEYER from the Bajocian of eastern France seems to be lost. Herein this species is revised on the basis of a well-preserved complete carapace from an iron-oolitic bed of the Sauzei Zone (Middle Jurassic, Early Bajocian) of the western Swabian Alb (SW Germany). It is recognized to be the oldest but not the most primitive representative of the genus Prosopon known so far and it is closely related to Foersteria. Its palaeoecological requirements appear to have been shallow water habitats with coarse-grained ironoolithic firmgrounds.

    ABSTRACT: A new subfamily, the Odontomariinae subfam. nov., is established herein for a distinctive group of uncoiled, slit-bearing Middle Devonian euomphalid gastropods. Its taxonomic position is based on the recent discovery of open coiled protoconchs and it is placed within the Euomphalomorpha. The genera Odontomaria Odontomaria C. F. Roemer and Tubiconcha n. gen. belonging to this new subfamily are enlarged based on studies on new material of the following species: Odontomaria semiplicata (Sandberger & Sandberger), Odontomaria gracilis n. sp., Odontomaria jankei n. sp., Odontomaria cheeneetnukensis n. sp., Odontomaria cindiprellerae n. sp. and Tubiconcha leunissi (Heidelberger, 2001). Members of the Odontomariinae were mainly sedentary organisms in high-energy, moderately shallow water.
