Past Sea Incursions into Patagonia and the Resulting Record of Marine Invertebrates

  • 137 Accesses

Part of the Natural and Social Sciences of Patagonia book series (NSSP)

Abstract

Since the initial opening of the Atlantic Ocean in the Early Cretaceous, the eastern margin of southern South America has been affected by several marine transgressions that left behind a rich sedimentary and paleontological record documenting the paleogeographic and paleoclimatic changes that took place. We briefly review the main changes in the fossil record of marine invertebrates that reflect the changing paleogeographic and paleoceanographic events in this part of the continent. These changes are related to the ensuing climatic conditions that affected the seawater temperature, which in turn is linked to the observed changes of the faunal composition in the different stratigraphic units currently exposed along the present coastline of Patagonia. These changes entailed the appearance and disappearance of different taxa, generally coincident with abrupt changes in the climatic conditions. A clearer picture of the history of the different faunas involved and the factors linked to their geographic and stratigraphic distribution are a prerequisite to the understanding of the origin and characteristics of the faunas currently living along the coasts of the southeastern Atlantic.
