Re: HUNT et al 1998



Aficionados of the Triassic tetrapods might also be interested to see...

Lucas, S.G.  1998.  Global Triassic tetrapod biostratigraphy and
biochronology. Palaeogeogr., Palaeoclimatol., Palaeoecol., vol. 143: pp.
347-384.

It's a big review, identifying eight "land-vertebrate faunachrons" and tying
them to the standard chronostratigraphic scale for the Triassic.  Despite
the claim to "Global" coverage (in title), I was disappointed to find that
it overlooks the reasonably good Triassic tetrapod faunas of Australia.
Aside from that omission, it really is global.

Back to the swamp...
