Tae-Yoon Park, Jikhan Jung, Mirinae Lee, Sangmin Lee, Yong Yi Zhen, Hong Hua, Lucas V. Warren & Nigel C. Hughes
The Ediacaran–Cambrian transition and the following Cambrian Explosion are among the most fundamental events in the evolutionary history of animals. Understanding these events is enhanced when phylogenetic linkages can be established among animal fossils across this interval and their trait evolution monitored. Doing this is challenging because the fossil record of animal lineages that span this transition is sparse, preserved morphologies generally simple, and lifestyles in the Ediacaran and Cambrian quite different. Here we identify...
