The website presenting the bone-bearing Keuper of Upper Silesia, based on the research results of the grant
N307 11703.
A b s t r a c t. The major goal of the project The evolution of terrestrial environments of the Upper Silesian Keuper as biotopes of vertebrates, granted for Grzegorz Racki by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education (2009–2013), was an exhaustive, integrated study of the bone-enriched middle Keuper interval in terms of stratigraphy, sedimentology, mineralogy and geochemistry. The new website Bone-bearing Keuper of the Upper Silesia, southern Poland ( presents in English the results of this project. The significant achievements are only a starting point to a comprehensive presentation of the complex Keuper themes, jointly with an extensive repository of regional literature (above 420 full-texted publications since 1790). In addition, the main results of the grant, as well as diversity of their implications for future studies are summarized herein, with emphasis on controversial geochronological aspects in vertebrate paleontology (how many bone-rich levels?), and in a broad historical context.
