The Middle Devonian Epoch, ~ 393-383 million years ago, is known for a peak in diversity and highest latitudinal distribution of coral and stromatoporoid reefs. About 388 million years ago, during the late Eifelian and earliest Givetian, climax conditions were interrupted by the polyphased Kacak Episode, a short-lived period of marine dys-/anoxia associated with climate warming that lasted less than 500 kyr. Reconstruction of the seawater temperature contributes to a better understanding of the ...

In the Carnic Alps there are four sections exposing rocks across the Devonian–Carboniferous boundary: the Grune Schneid and the Kronhofgraben sections in Austria, the Plan di Zermula A and the Sentiero per Cresta Verde sections in Italy. All of them are mainly composed of limestone and span from the late Famennian through the Tournaisian. In the Kronhofgraben and Plan di Zermula A sections, the limestone sedimentation is interrupted by black shales interpreted as equivalent of the Hangenberg Bla...

This article compiles data on the Devonian-Carboniferous Boundary successions from countries and regions, which have not been dealt with separately in this special issue. Data derive from different palaeocontinents on a large palaeoclimatic gradient from the southern high latitudes of western Gondwana through the palaeotropics into the temperate/boreal northern latitudes of Siberia. The quality of the data is variable, but often surprisingly good, although major uncertainties can persist and tra...

Sections with continuous sedimentation across the Devonian–Carboniferous (D-C) boundary in the Montagne Noire allow to build a virtual transect from shoreline to deep basin. Nearshore facies characterise the D-C boundary stratotype and neighbouring sections at La Serre in the Cabrieres klippen domain, and offshore facies are present at the Col de Tribes and Puech de la Suque sections in the Mont Peyroux nappe domain. Both domains exhibit equivalents of the Hangenberg Black Shale (HBS). At La Ser...

Abstract The study on Silurian-Devonian conodonts from the Precordillera has shown a significant increase in the last 5 years. In the new conodont collections, particular specimens of Ozarkodina were obtained from the middle and upper parts of the Los Espejos Formation in the Talacasto region. The taxonomic study allows us to propose a new species of the genus Ozarkodina, named Ozarkodina huenickeni sp. nov., which shows three different morphotypes, α, β and γ, respectively, based on the presenc...

In Sardinia (Italy) two sections, located in the southeastern part of the island, expose the Devonian/Carboniferous Boundary: the Monte Taccu Section and the Bruncu Bullai section. Both expose limestones from the middle Famennian to the lower Tournaisian Siphonodella jii Zone. The limestone sequence is interrupted by a thin level of shales representing the Hangenberg Event. Data on conodont biostratigraphy and magnetic susceptibility across the Devonian/Carboniferous Boundary are here summarised...

New conodont data provide further constraints on the occurrence of the Devonian-Carboniferous boundary in the Kule section through the carbonate Novchomok Formation (Kitab Reserve, Uzbekistan). The stratigraphically condensed section includes the interval from the uppermost Famennian Pseudopolygnathus granulosus –lowermost Protognathodus kockeli zones to the middle Tournaisian Siphonodella crenulata Zone. In addition to revision of earlier published taxonomic and biostratigraphic data, two previ...
