Call for Papers to the Special Issue "Brazilian fossiliferous sites with paleobiological importance"


-The special issue "Brazilian fossiliferous sites with paleobiological importance" aims to encourage the publication of articles on the paleontological heritage of the rich Brazilian fossiliferous deposits.

-Lagerstätten deposits are welcome, but those fossil-bearing strata whose fossiliferous content presents evidences of extinction events, biotic crises, climate change, mass mortality, and others, are encouraged.

-Finally, proposals and measures for protection and conservation in the field are also encouraged.
