Paleogeographic Interpretation of the Taphonomy of the Principal Middle and Upper Permian Ichthyofauna Locations from European Russia

Paleogeographic reconstructions of sedimentation settings have been substantially refined from the taphonomic data from the ichthyofauna localities; the Permian fishes from East Europe have lately acquired the orthostratigraphic status. The taphonomic research in a number of the Middle and the Late Permian ichthyofauna locations has largely confirmed the reality of existence of fairly extensive sedimentation basins over European Russia in the Kazanian, the Urzhumian and the Severodvinian ages; those basins used to be periodically connected with the World Ocean.
