The main aim of this thematic issue is to present new high-resolution taxonomic data and ecologic interpretations that are currently available for the Kellwasser Crisis and other Late Devonian events from different parts of the Devonian world. Nine contributions present results of studies of eastern Laurussian epeiric successions in the framework of the international project “Ecosystem Aspects of Late Devonian Biotic Crisis”
