Post-Turonian (Late Cretaceous) rudist-bearing limestones of the Nurra region in northwestern Sardinia (northern Tethyan margin) and in the central-southern Apennines and Apulia (central Tethyan domain) have recorded relevant changes in the characteristics of the carbonate platforms following the “middle” Cretaceous crisis events which affected the peri-Tethyan region as well as other regions worldwide.

Rudist bivalves became the dominant lithogenetic taxon owing to their proliferation in shallow-water environments and strong dominance of Late Cretaceous carbonate factories. Their inception, evolution, and demise were seemingly controlled by a complex interplay of environmental processes that, acting on a global scale, profoundly modified the...
