Article
Microfossils have been found in most of the Mesozoic basins of Brazil, allowing the establishment of important biozones. Despite being recognized for more than half century in the Barremian from the Reconcavo Basin, the taxonomy of the benthic foraminifera remained unsolved likewise its paleoenviromental implications. In this study, we have applied...
Article
The Brazilian fossil record holds crucial information regarding the evolutionary history of many invertebrate groups (e.g., cnidarian, bryozoan and brachiopods). Most of them are well-distributed through the formations of intracratonic basins (Amazonas, Paraná, Sergipe-Alagoas and others), which have been studied since the first expeditions in the...
Article
Fossil resins and ostracods are well-known in Brazilian Cretaceous sedimentary Basins, especially in the Araripe Basin. The present work reports several ostracods encapsulated in an amber sample recovered from limestones of the Crato Formation (Araripe Basin, Northeastern Brazil). The amber was analyzed under optical microscopy revealing several os...
Article
Biomineralized and organic metazoan tubular skeletons are by far the most common in the fossil record. However, several groups of organisms are also able to agglutinate particles to construct more rigid structures. Here we present a novel type of agglutinated tube from the austral and endemic palaeobiota of the Malvinokaffric realm (Devonian, Brazi...

Geobiology explores how Earth's system has changed over the course of geologic history and how living organisms on this planet are impacted by or are indeed causing these changes. For decades, geologists, paleontologists, and geochemists have generated data to investigate these topics. Foundational efforts in sedimentary geochemistry utilized sprea...
Article
Large datasets increasingly provide critical insights into crustal and surface processes on Earth. These data come in the form of published and contributed observations, which often include associated metadata. Even in the best-case scenario of a carefully curated dataset, it may be non-trivial to extract meaningful analyses from such compilations,...

The composition of continental crust records the balance between construction by tectonics and destruction by physical and chemical erosion. Quantitative constraints on how igneous addition and chemical weathering have modifed the continents' bulk composition are essential for understanding the evolution of geodynamics and climate. Using novel data...
Article
Micropaleontology is crucial branch of Earth Sciences, with a pivotal role in the success of the oil and gas industry over the decades. This sector of paleontology is based on the taxonomical description of microfossils, which encompass fossils with size variation from 0.001 mm to 1 m. Normally these microorganisms have a high rate on preservation,...

The composition of continental crust records a history of construction by tectonics and destruction by physical and chemical erosion. Quantitative constraints on how both igneous addition and chemical weathering have modified the continents' bulk composition are essential for understanding the evolution of geodynamics and climate. We have extracted...
Article
The sponges may be the oldest group of Metazoa, with a long and successful evolutionary history. Despite their intermittent fossil record quality, the group has been considered reliable for paleoecological and paleobiogeographic analyses because they have inhabited various types of aquatic environments, forming a significant part of benthic communi...

The Shaler Memorial Fund created in 1907 by students and admirers of the geologist Nathaniel Southgate Shaler, professor from Harvard University, allowed in its first contribution to fostering research, the organization of an expedition to the South and Southeast of Brazil. The expedition had the purpose to confirm Nathaniel`s ideas about the exist...
Article
Here, the Lower Permian, post-glacial fossiliferous Lontras black shales from the Paraná Basin (southern Brazil) are studied using integrated palynological, geochemical and petrographic methods for the first time in order to decipher the prevalent palaeoenvironmental conditions during their sedimentation. These black shales were deposited in a rest...
Article
Caddisflies (Trichoptera) are small, cosmopolitan insects closely related to the Lepidoptera (moths and butterflies). Most caddisflies construct protective cases during their larval development. Although the earliest recognisable caddisflies date back to the early Mesozoic (Early and Middle Triassic), being particularly numerous and diverse during...

The first-described articulated Permian sponge from Brazil, representing Hexactinellida, has been recovered from the Lontras Shale in the Campaleo outcrop (Permian, Asselian-Sakrnarian), Rio do Sul Formation, Mafia, in southern Brazil. It is assigned to the Hemidiscellidae and identified as Microhemidiscia greinerti n. sp. This fossil represents th...

In the Upper Cretaceous deposits of Bauru Basin, the complete specimens of chelonians are rare. However, a large amount of bone fragments of Pleurodyra suborder is found. In the paleon-tological sites located at Peirópolis (Uberaba, Minas Gerais), which belong to Marília Formation (Maastrichtian – Campanian), there is one of the best fossil registe...

RESUMO O registro de vertebrados fósseis da Formação Guabirotuba, Bacia de Curitiba (Cenozoico), no sul do Brasil, restringia-se a um dente de crocodi-liforme e fragmentos ósseos indeterminados. Novos espécimes, coletados em afl oramento localizado na cidade de Curitiba, no Estado do Paraná, são aqui descritos e correspondem ao primeiro registro de...
