International Symposium on the Ediacaran-Cambrian Transition

The International Symposium on the Ediacaran-Cambrian Transition took place in St. John’s, Newfoundland, in June 2017. The ISECT meeting brought together 150 researchers working on aspects of the stratigraphy, sedimentology, geochemistry and palaeobiology of the Ediacaran and Cambrian Systems.
