Ediacaran Soft Bodied Fossils Were Preserved due to Silicia Rich Oceans?

Exceptional preservation of soft-bodied Ediacara Biota promoted by silica-rich oceans Authors: Tarhan et al Abstract: The Ediacara Biota, Earth's earliest fossilized ecosystem of complex, macroscopic, multicellular organisms, occurs in terminal Ediacaran strata worldwide, yet how the fossils are preserved remains controversial. Ediacara assemblages consist of exceptionally preserved soft-bodied forms of enigmatic morphology and phylogenetic affinity.
