The Famennian vertebrate fauna of Strud (Namur Basin, Belgium) with special focus on early tetrapod evolution and paleoecology

The study of the paleoenvironment of the Strud quarry beds (Late Famennian) is primordial because their formation took place during the earliest phase of tetrapod evolution (i.e. after their emergence around 400 million year ago and before their terrestrialisation at the beginning of the Carboniferous 40 m.y. later).
