A geographical information system (GIS) study of Triassic vertebrate biochronology

Abstract:

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) have been applied extensively to analyse spatial data relating to varied environmental issues, but have not so far been used to address biostratigraphical or macroevolutionary questions over extended spatial and temporal scales. Here, we use GIS techniques to test the stability, validity and utility of proposed Middle and Late Triassic 'Land Vertebrate Faunachrons' (LVFs), a global biostratigraphical framework based upon terrestrial/freshwater tetrapod o...
