Notes:Outgrowth of a proposal presented at the 2nd Symposium on the Vendian-Cambrian of Southwestern Gondwana, held in Montevideo in 2002, that was approved as International Geoscience Programme 478 project, "Neoproterozoic-early Paleozoic events in southwestern Gondwana." Cf. pref.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 405-454) and index.
Summary:The book deals with the record of important Neoproterozoic to Early Palaeozoic events in southwestern Gondwana, that heralded the Cambrian explosion and the dawn of modern ecosystems. It contains a detailed account of the Neoproterozoic to Cambrian geological record in a poorly-known part of the world, which is at the same time key to understand fundamental processes at the Proterozoic-Cambrian transition. The emphasis is placed on litho-, bio-, chemostratigraphy and magmatism. The palaeoclimatic, tectonic, evolutionary radiation and extinction events and associated mineralizations will be identified and discussed. A synthesis of all data is provided at the end of the book, integrating the data from all cratons and fold belts in southwestern Gondwana. The events will be individualized, their impact discussed and correlations between different successions both within and outside Gondwana proposed.
