David’s research interests include fossil brachiopods, history of
biodiversity, and computer-based methods for the analysis and modelling
of fossils and their distributions.
For the project, David leads the team that has to develop Ordovician
sea-level curves. But he is also the leader of the Baltoscandian

Jun is working mostly on Ordovician
He accepted to establish and coordinate the working group on
biostratigraphy and correlations, in cooperation with the chairmen of
the Ordovician (Chen Xu) and Silurian subcommission (Rong JiaYu).

Axel’s main research fields include diagenesis of carbonate rhythmites,
Palaeozoic micro- and nannofossils, stable isotopes and Silurian
Within the frame of IGCP 503, Axel accepted to be coordinator of a
working group on isotope geochemistry in the Lower Palaeozoic.

Alan’s expertise encompasses trilobite palaeontology, biodiversity
change, palaeobiogeography, Caledonide terrane evolution, and
sedimentary geochemistry and stratigraphy.
Within Project 503, Alan has responsibility for the work on patterns of
biodiversity change and corresponding databases.

Thomas is a specialist on Lower Palaeozoic organic-walled
As the chair of the project, Thomas is responsible for co-ordinating
project work of all other leaders and also is responsible
for communication with the IGCP headquarters and UNESCO.
But he also leads the working groups on palaeogeographical
reconstructions and climate modelling.

Peter’s research focus is on evolutionary patterns and paleoecology.
His main speciality is mid-Paleozoic brachiopods but also sequence
Peter will be the coordinator of a working group on palaeoecology
changes during the Lower Palaeozoic.
