Research

* Ichnology of ancient tidal flats and marginal-marine environments: Tidal flats witnessed first-order evolutionary events, representing complex ecosystems where many evolutionary innovations might have taken place. Additionally, an integrated ichnologic and sedimentologic model for tide-influenced shorelines has been developed. This project started several years ago while working on Carboniferous tidal flats in the American Midcontinent and in the last couple of years I have extended its temporal range to include Lower Paleozoic (NW Argentina) and Neogene (Patagonia) temporal windows. I am  also interested in tracking the evolution of organism-sediment interactions in estuaries through geologic history.

 

* Ichnology of Lower Paleozoic ecosystems and implications in Evolutionary Paleoecology: I have actively taken part in IGCP 410-The Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event, the final result of which is a book published by Columbia University Press. A chapter on the ichnologic record of the Ordovician radiation co-authored by Mary Droser (University of California) has been published in that book. I am actively working on the ichnology of shallow-marine Cambrian ecosystems of Northwest Argentina, Western Canada and Jordan and its implications for our understanding of early Paleozoic ecosystems. Recently, I started to work on the ichnology of the Burgess Shale. At the macroevolutionary scale this type of study should be based on well-documented detailed studies and solid databases. My work reflects an attempt to bridge the gap between the documentation of local occurrences and the global scale. Additionally, I have explored the potential of ichnology in paleoenvironmental and paleoecological reconstructions of shallow-marine clastic successions through time.

 

* Continental Ichnofacies in space and time: This line of research was begun during the 1990s to attempt a critical re-evaluation of the continental Scoyenia ichnofacies. As a result, several nonmarine ichnofacies have since been proposed, including the permanently subaqueous Mermia ichnofacies, and more recently the palaeosol ichnofacies (e.g. Coprinisphaera ichnofacies). Trace fossils also record early evidence for the invasion of land and ecospace utilization in terrestrial environments. In the early 1990s I published the first available database documenting the distribution pattern of continental trace fossils in collaboration with Luis Buatois, and we proposed a temporal framework for the colonization of the different continental environments through geologic time. The suggested patterns are based on a database of 70 entries of lacustrine ichnofaunas and 80 of fluvial ichnofaunas.

 

* Paleobiology and autoecology of trace fossils: This line of research deals with the mode of construction and ethologic interpretation of selected trace fossils. It has implications in paleoecological studies because our understanding of the behavior of extinct groups is mediated in many cases by the study of biogenic structures. It also has implications in ichnotaxonomy because an appropriate understanding of functional morphology is relevant to naming ichnotaxa (i.e. ichnotaxonomic classification is morphoethologic).
