Special Issue on Phanerozoic Anoxic Events in North Africa and related Mass-Extinctions

During these last decades, important publications have raised up much concerns about organic-rich sedimentation and mass/step-by-step extinctions. This subject has concerned thoroughly the NW Tethyan part and high latitudinal region (including present France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Poland, Russia, Hungary, Turkey, etc). Recent petroleum studies have shown, however, that intense black shale levels with important organic-rich accumulation have been recorded in North Africa (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya and Egypt). These recordings confirmed the worldwide Oceanic Anoxic Events during the Phanerozoic. However, it is worthy to say that publications on this thematic remain poor to very poor, unfortunately, when compared with the European recordings.

The aims and scope of this special issue will focus on the Phanerozoic (Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic) anoxic events (black shale accumulations) and related mass-extinctions in the North African domain.
