Abstract:

Ongoing discoveries of new rangeomorph fossils from the Ediacaran of Avalonia allow us to put forward a unified and approachable scheme for the description and phylogenetic analysis of frondose genera and their species. This scheme focuses upon the branching morphology of rangeomorph units. Our system has the advantage of being applicable at all visible scales of subdivision and is suitable for the study of isolated fragmentary specimens. The system is also free from hypothesis about biologic...
