Evidence Ediacaran Biota Members Survived Into the Cambrian

Transitional Ediacaran–Cambrian small skeletal fossil assemblages from South China and Kazakhstan: Implications for chronostratigraphy and metazoan evolution Authors: Yang et al Abstract: The Ediacaran–Cambrian transition records distinct evolutionary changes of metazoans. The Ediacaran fossils (i.e., Ediacara-type biota and tubular fossils) are contrasting with the diverse small skeletal fossils (SSFs) from the early Cambrian.
