Etymology[edit] The chronostratigraphic term "Jurassic" is directly linked to the Jura Mountains. During a tour of the region in 1795,[7] Alexander von Humboldt recognized the mainly limestone dominated mountain range of the Jura Mountains as a separate formation that had not been included in the established stratigraphic system defined by Abraham Gottlob Werner, and he named it "Jura-Kalkstein" ('Jura limestone') in 1799.[8][9][10][11] The name "Jura" is derived from the Celtic root *jor via Gaulish *iuris "wooded mountain", which, borrowed into Latin as a place name, evolved into Juria and finally Jura.[9][10][12]

Divisions[edit] The Jurassic period is divided into the Early Jurassic, Middle, and Late Jurassic epochs. The Jurassic System, in stratigraphy, is divided into the Lower Jurassic, Middle, and Upper Jurassic series of rock formations, also known as Lias, Dogger and Malm in Europe.[13] The separation of the term Jurassic into three sections goes back to Leopold von Buch.[11] The faunal stages from youngest to oldest are: Upper/Late Jurassic Tithonian (152.1 ± 4 – 145 ± 4 Mya) Kimmeridgian (157.3 ± 4 – 152.1 ± 4 Mya) Oxfordian (163.5 ± 4 – 157.3 ± 4 Mya) Middle Jurassic Callovian (166.1 ± 4 – 163.5 ± 4 Mya) Bathonian (168.3 ± 3.5 – 166.1 ± 4 Mya) Bajocian (170.3 ± 3 – 168.3 ± 3.5 Mya) Aalenian (174.1 ± 2 – 170.3 ± 3 Mya) Lower/Early Jurassic Toarcian (182.7 ± 1.5 – 174.1 ± 2 Mya) Pliensbachian (190.8 ± 1.5 – 182.7 ± 1.5 Mya) Sinemurian (199.3 ± 1 – 190.8 ± 1.5 Mya) Hettangian (201.3 ± 0.6 – 199.3 ± 1 Mya)

Paleogeography and tectonics[edit] Depiction of Early Jurassic environment preserved at the St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm, with D. wetherilli in bird-like resting pose During the early Jurassic period, the supercontinent Pangaea broke up into the northern supercontinent Laurasia and the southern supercontinent Gondwana; the Gulf of Mexico opened in the new rift between North America and what is now Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. The Jurassic North Atlantic Ocean was relatively narrow, while the South Atlantic did not open until the following Cretaceous period, when Gondwana itself rifted apart.[14] The Tethys Sea closed, and the Neotethys basin appeared. Climates were warm, with no evidence of glaciation. As in the Triassic, there was apparently no land over either pole, and no extensive ice caps existed. The Jurassic geological record is good in western Europe, where extensive marine sequences indicate a time when much of that future landmass was submerged under shallow tropical seas; famous locales include the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site in southern England and the renowned late Jurassic lagerstätten of Holzmaden and Solnhofen in Germany.[15] In contrast, the North American Jurassic record is the poorest of the Mesozoic, with few outcrops at the surface.[16] Though the epicontinental Sundance Sea left marine deposits in parts of the northern plains of the United States and Canada during the late Jurassic, most exposed sediments from this period are continental, such as the alluvial deposits of the Morrison Formation. The Jurassic was a time of calcite sea geochemistry in which low-magnesium calcite was the primary inorganic marine precipitate of calcium carbonate. Carbonate hardgrounds were thus very common, along with calcitic ooids, calcitic cements, and invertebrate faunas with dominantly calcitic skeletons (Stanley and Hardie, 1998, 1999). The first of several massive batholiths were emplaced in the northern American cordillera beginning in the mid-Jurassic, marking the Nevadan orogeny.[17] Important Jurassic exposures are also found in Russia, India, South America, Japan, Australasia and the United Kingdom. In Africa, Early Jurassic strata are distributed in a similar fashion to Late Triassic beds, with more common outcrops in the south and less common fossil beds which are predominated by tracks to the north.[18] As the Jurassic proceeded, larger and more iconic groups of dinosaurs like sauropods and ornithopods proliferated in Africa.[18] Middle Jurassic strata are neither well represented nor well studied in Africa.[18] Late Jurassic strata are also poorly represented apart from the spectacular Tendaguru fauna in Tanzania.[18] The Late Jurassic life of Tendaguru is very similar to that found in western North America's Morrison Formation.[18] Jurassic limestones and marls (the Matmor Formation) in southern Israel.

Fauna[edit] Aquatic and marine[edit] During the Jurassic period, the primary vertebrates living in the sea were fish and marine reptiles. The latter include ichthyosaurs, which were at the peak of their diversity, plesiosaurs, pliosaurs, and marine crocodiles of the families Teleosauridae and Metriorhynchidae.[19] Numerous turtles could be found in lakes and rivers.[20][21] In the invertebrate world, several new groups appeared, including rudists (a reef-forming variety of bivalves) and belemnites. Calcareous sabellids (Glomerula) appeared in the Early Jurassic.[22][23] The Jurassic also had diverse encrusting and boring (sclerobiont) communities, and it saw a significant rise in the bioerosion of carbonate shells and hardgrounds. Especially common is the ichnogenus (trace fossil) Gastrochaenolites.[24] During the Jurassic period, about four or five of the twelve clades of planktonic organisms that exist in the fossil record either experienced a massive evolutionary radiation or appeared for the first time.[13] A Pliosaurus (right) harassing a Leedsichthys in a Jurassic sea. Ichthyosaurus from lower (early) Jurassic slates in southern Germany featured a dolphin-like body shape. Plesiosaurs like Muraenosaurus roamed Jurassic oceans. Gastropod and attached mytilid bivalves on a Jurassic limestone bedding plane in southern Israel. Terrestrial[edit] On land, various archosaurian reptiles remained dominant. The Jurassic was a golden age for the large herbivorous dinosaurs known as the sauropods—Camarasaurus, Apatosaurus, Diplodocus, Brachiosaurus, and many others—that roamed the land late in the period; their foraging grounds were either the prairies of ferns, palm-like cycads and bennettitales, or the higher coniferous growth, according to their adaptations. The smaller Ornithischian herbivore dinosaurs, like stegosaurs and small ornithopods were less predominant, but played important roles. They were preyed upon by large theropods, such as Ceratosaurus, Megalosaurus, Torvosaurus and Allosaurus. All these belong to the 'lizard hipped' or saurischian branch of the dinosaurs.[25] During the Late Jurassic, the first avialans, like Archaeopteryx, evolved from small coelurosaurian dinosaurs. In the air, pterosaurs were common; they ruled the skies, filling many ecological roles now taken by birds,[26] and may have already produced some of the largest flying animals of all time.[27][28] Within the undergrowth were various types of early mammals, as well as tritylodonts, lizard-like sphenodonts, and early lissamphibians. The rest of the Lissamphibia evolved in this period, introducing the first salamanders and caecilians.[29] Diplodocus, reaching lengths over 30 m, was a common sauropod during the late Jurassic. Allosaurus was one of the largest land predators during the Jurassic. Stegosaurus is one of the most recognizable genera of dinosaurs and lived during the mid to late Jurassic. Archaeopteryx, a primitive bird-like dinosaur, appeared in the Late Jurassic. Aurornis xui, which lived in the late Jurassic, may be the most primitive avialan dinosaur known to date, and is one of the earliest avialans found to date.

Flora[edit] Conifers were the dominant land plants of the Jurassic Various dinosaurs roamed forests of similarly large conifers during the Jurassic period. The arid, continental conditions characteristic of the Triassic steadily eased during the Jurassic period, especially at higher latitudes; the warm, humid climate allowed lush jungles to cover much of the landscape.[30] Gymnosperms were relatively diverse during the Jurassic period.[13] The Conifers in particular dominated the flora, as during the Triassic; they were the most diverse group and constituted the majority of large trees. Extant conifer families that flourished during the Jurassic included the Araucariaceae, Cephalotaxaceae, Pinaceae, Podocarpaceae, Taxaceae and Taxodiaceae.[31] The extinct Mesozoic conifer family Cheirolepidiaceae dominated low latitude vegetation, as did the shrubby Bennettitales.[32] Cycads, similar to palm trees, were also common, as were ginkgos and Dicksoniaceous tree ferns in the forest.[13] Smaller ferns were probably the dominant undergrowth. Caytoniaceous seed ferns were another group of important plants during this time and are thought to have been shrub to small-tree sized.[33] Ginkgo plants were particularly common in the mid- to high northern latitudes.[13] In the Southern Hemisphere, podocarps were especially successful, while Ginkgos and Czekanowskiales were rare.[30][32] In the oceans, modern coralline algae appeared for the first time.[13] However, they were a part of another major extinction that happened within the next major time period.

Explanatory notes[edit] ^ A 140 Ma age for the Jurassic-Cretaceous instead of the usually accepted 145 Ma was proposed in 2014 based on a stratigraphic study of Vaca Muerta Formation in Neuquén Basin, Argentina.[5] Víctor Ramos, one of the authors of the study proposing the 140 Ma boundary age, sees the study as a "first step" toward formally changing the age in the International Union of Geological Sciences.[6]
