A trace fossil, also ichnofossil (/ ˈ ɪ k n oʊ f ɒ s ɪ l /; from Greek: ἴχνος ikhnos "trace, track"), is a geological record of biological activity. Ichnology is the study of such traces, and is the work of fossils may consist of impressions made on or in the substrate by an organism: for example, burrows, borings (), urolites (erosion caused by evacuation of. In the Cambrian Period, prodigious change occured, all in the oceans, as the land remained barren. Except for enigmatic forms, all modern animal phyla with a fossil record, except bryozoa, are represented in the Cambrian. Because some life became mineralized, the possibility of fossil formation greatly increased.

Middle Cambrian fossils from Tizi N'Tichka, the High Atlas, Morocco. Part 2. The Cambrian period occurred approximately million years ago, and included the biggest evolutionary explosion in Earth’s history. Some researchers think this happened due to a combination of a warming climate, more oxygen in the ocean, and the creation of extensive shallow-water marine habitats—which, combined, made an ideal environment for the proliferation of new types of animals. The formation is composed of gray cherty dolomite, limestone, and smaller amounts of siltstone. Total thickness is – meters (– ft). It lies unconformably on the Bliss Formation or the Coronado Sandstone and is overlain by the Montoya Group or Portal Formation.. Fossils. The formation is only sparsely fossiliferous, but contains fossils of echinoderms, gastropods, trilobites.   A Virginia Tech geobiologist with collaborators from the Chinese Academy of Sciences have found evidence in the fossil record that complex multicellularity appeared in living things about million years ago — nearly 60 million years before skeletal animals appeared during a huge growth spurt of new life on Earth known as the Cambrian.

Fourth contribution to nomenclature of Cambrian fossils / By Charles E. (Charles Elmer) Resser. Abstract. Publication Mode of access: Internet Topics: Paleontology, Invertebrates, Fossil. Publisher: City of Washington. Cambrian rocks Types and distribution. Cambrian rocks have a special biological significance, because they are the earliest to contain diverse fossils of rocks also include the first appearances of most animal phyla that have fossil records. Cambrian evolution produced such an extraordinary array of new body plans that this event has been referred to as the Cambrian explosion. The Cambrian explosion or Cambrian radiation was the seemingly rapid appearance of most major groups of complex animals around million years ago, as evidenced by the fossil record. This was accompanied by a major diversification of other organisms, including animals, phytoplankton, and calcimicrobes. Before about million years ago, most organisms were simple, composed of . The section extends from well down in the Lower Cambrian to the base of the Ordovician, and is the best and most complete of the Basin Range sections so far studied. A map will be published with the detailed sections, giving the geographic localities referred to in the nomenclature .
