Permo-Triassic

[Translate to english:] Brachiopoda (Pterospirifer alatus)

Brachiopoda (Stenoscisma multiplicata)

The chronological correlation of marine and continental Permian and Lower Triassic deposits causes problems until today. The goal of the project is the definition of the Permo-Triassic Boundary of the marine deposits of the boreal and the western Paleo-Tethys Ocean including continental deposits of Central Europe. The fossil content of the European Permian and Permo-Triassic deposits of the Southern and Southeastern Alps are therefore compared with the fossil content of the Central European Permian and Lower Triassic (Bunter) deposits. The base for this work is the investigation of taxonomy and biostratigraphical distribution of fossils found in marine sediments of the Permian and the Lower Triassic worldwide.
