Konservat-Lagerstätten are seen as snapshots of past biodiversity for a given location and time. Yet, processes leading to the exceptional morphological preservation of fossils in these deposits remain incompletely understood. This results in the deficient assessment of taphonomic biases and limits the robustness/relevance of palaeobiological reconstructions. Here, we report the mineralogical characterization of crustacean fossils preserved within carbonate-rich concretions from the Jurassic Konservat-Lagerstätte of La Voulte-sur-Rhône (Ardèche, France). The combination of SEM-EDS, TEM, synchrotron-based XRF,...
