This collection of papers covers state-of-the-art critical topics related to the Late Paleozoic Glaciation and deglaciation-triggered sea-level rise that affected Gondwana. Those topics include the sequence stratigraphic framework of postglacial transgressions and their influence on the salinity of the postglacial coastlines, faunas (including the Levipustula Fauna) and floras associated with the Late Paleozoic Glaciation, ichnofacies related to this paleoclimatic episode, and relatively less known glacial deposits in some Gondwanan regions. One chapter challenges the popular interpretation that there was a single massive ice sheet over much of Gondwana during the late Paleozoic glaciation.
