      Abstract: The diverse, well-preserved spore assemblage hosted by the non-marine Lyall Formation of the Clarke River Basin in north Queensland includes many species reported previously from Mississippian strata elsewhere in Australia, together with one new genus and species (Apricasporites cancellosus) and seven additional new species (Granulatisporites commutabilis, Anapiculatisporites radiatus, Camptotriletes inaequabilis, C. suggrandis, Convolutispora inreligata, Foveosporites magnus, and Endosporites circumsaeptus). In terms of the existing palynostratigrahic zonation of Australian Mississippian successions, the palynoflora is clearly attributable to the Visean Anapiculatisporites largus Zone, first recognized in the Bonaparte Basin (northwestern Australia) and well-represented also in the Drummond Basin, east-central Queensland. However, a few constituent species are known as components of the succeeding Grandispora maculosa Zone (mid/late Visean–early Serpukhovian). This study provides confirmation of floristic affinities between Eastern and Western Gondwana during the Mississippian.

      Abstract: Ancient and modern marine environments are usually characterized by colonizers associated with living and dead organisms, as well as inorganic substrates. There are different terminologies to characterize these colonizations, i.e., if the roots of the terms refer to the colonizer or the colonized substrate. The terminology stated by Paul D. Taylor and Mark A. Wilson is considered here as background to characterize marine ancient and modern assemblages on hard substrates. These authors define the term “sclerobiont”, but not “sclerobiosis”. We focus on the term “sclerobiont” and the need for a formal term, “sclerobiosis”. There is no definition of the latter, which is beginning to be used as a synonym for “epibiosis”. Here we define “sclerobiosis” as the spatial association between any kind of hard substrate and a diversity of life forms, which can occupy different spatial location of the hard substrate. With regard to colonization of marine hard substrates, “epibiosis” is included within “sclerobiosis”. The goal is to clarify in which cases the use of each term is more appropriate, according to the criteria considered in the cited definitions of the terms. When studying different aspects of the colonization of living, dead and inorganic hard substrates, and even when we want to establish comparisons of colonizations over time and space, it is useful to have a term that encompasses all these associations between substrates and colonizers. “Sclerobiosis” is proposed to aid a uniform language among deep-time and modern ecology researchers, especially those working on both settings.

      Abstract: In this work, we studied the fossil diagenesis of vertebrates recovered from a quaternary tank deposit at Taperoá, Paraíba State, northeastern Brazil. The samples were classified based on the staining pattern and examined using petrography, fluorescence (XRF), and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyses. A principal component analysis (PCA) was used to verify the relationship between the staining and chemical composition of the fossils. Microfractures, microcrackins, permineralization, and replacement were observed, although the bone microstructure was well-preserved. The XRF analysis showed that the specimens with the highest percentage of manganese and iron appeared darkest (black and red shades, respectively), which the PCA confirmed. The variation in rare earth elements (REE) values indicates the occurrence of temporal mixing. The XRd analysis showed a predominance of hydroxyapatite; therefore, fossils may preserve the original mineral composition. Root marks and sun exposure bleaching were also observed, which suggested reworking and temporal mixing. Thus, we conclude that the tank deposit of Taperoá underwent different environmental conditions, from oxidising to reducing and wet to dry conditions, which caused diagenetic differences and represent a typical setting for tank deposits. This confirms the seasonality of the semi-arid climate of the Brazilian Intertropical Region (RIB) during the Pleistocene epoch.
