About this book

The highly interesting Late Carboniferous-Early Permian paleo-ecosystem from Niederhausen (Saar-Nahe area, Rheinland-Pfalz, SW-Germany) is described and shown. However, on the Kasimovian/Gzhelian boundary (303.7 my years ± 1 my), in Europe, one finds a flourishing and all dominating conifer assemblage and also other plant-families like ferns (Todites and Scolecopteris), seed ferns (Peltaspermum), and Cycadophyta, which can be regarded as typical Permian and not Carboniferous. This strange plant association suggests that, apart from the dominating Carboniferous species, giant lycophyta and sphenopyhta jungles existed in the hinterland long before a much more aridity-adapted vegetation, which became dominant in the following million years and until the present day.
