Abstract A brief biography of the Cretaceous geologist and bookseller Norman Peake is provided, as a late obituary, and to place his work in context. Norman’s work on the stratigraphy of the English chalk was truly groundbreaking, in that he pioneered the publication of accurately drawn graphical logs of chalk, which led eventually to the widespread use of chalk lithostratigraphy in correlation and mapping. His important work on the echinoid Echinocorys , mostly never published, is also reviewed...
A new cephalopod collection from the Campanian-Maastrichtian boundary interval of NE Mexico, consisting of 1076 individuals assigned to 29 species and 22 genera is presented. This collection is a mix of ammonoids, one coleoid and one nautilid, which originate from at least three ammonoid biozones: The upper Campanian Exiteloceras jenneyi and Nostoceras ( Nostoceras ) hyatti zones, and the lower Maastrichtian Pachydiscus ( Pachydiscus ) neubergicus Zone. The age of the collection is thus middle l...

Abstract Detailed logging, sampling and processing of Lower Campanian chalks in Sussex, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Wiltshire and Dorset (United Kingdom) have revealed the presence of a distinctive succession of pelagic microcrinoid faunas, including 25 species and forms of the order Roveacrinida. These occur through the Offaster pillula and Gonioteuthis quadrata zones and provide the basis for a new zonation characterized as CaR1-CaR11. Together with horizons of abundance and distinctive forms of...

Acta Geologica Polonica, 62 (1), 91–116. Warszawa. The formal definition of the Global Stratotype Section and Point (GSSP) for the base of the Maastrichtian Stage at Tercis, southwest France, is based on the first or last occurrences of twelve taxa, including three species of ammonites, Pachydiscus (Pachydiscus) neubergicus, Diplomocera...

The formal definition of the Global Stratotype Section and Point (GSSP) for the base of the Maastrichtian Stage at Tercis, southwest France, is based on the first or last occurrences of twelve taxa, including three species of ammonites, Pachydiscus ( Pachydiscus ) neubergicus , Diplomoceras cylindraceum , and Nostoceras ( Nostoceras ) hyatti . The taxonomy and stratigraphical distribution of these, and allied forms, are studied, on the basis of material from the opoka succession across the upper...

A synthesis of the stratigraphy of the Maastrichtian Stage in its extended type area, that is, southern Limburg (the Netherlands), and adjacent Belgian and German territories, is presented with a brief historical overview. Quarrying activities at the large quarry complex of ENCI-HeidelbergCement Group will officially come to an end on July 1, 2018. However, the stratotype section below the Lichtenberg farmstead and directly behind the main office building at the Lage Kanaaldijk (Maastricht), wil...

Integrated stratigraphy of the Kronsmoor section (northern Germany), a reference point for the base of the Maastrichtian in the Boreal Realm. Acta Geologica Polonica, 61 (2), 193–214. Warszawa. Results of detailed multistratigraphic analyses of the campanian–Maastrichtian boundary section at Kronsmoor in northern Germany are summarised and calibrated with the Gssp at Tercis les Bains, southwest France. Additional markers for the def...

At the Geological Society memorial meeting held to celebrate Professor Jake Hancock's extensive career, and to mourn the passing of this legendary geologist, we three nannopalacontologists were invited to talk on nannofossils at the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary. This talk, which detailed new evidence for rapid nannofossil extinctions and the role of neritic taxa in the subsequent recolonization of the oceans, was preceded by some reminiscences about Jake, whom we all knew. These are reproduced h...

Late Cretaceous and Early Palaeogene echinoid faunules collected in recent years from the surface of an active mudflow at the Gschliefgraben near Gmunden (east of the Traunsee, Upper Austria) are both fairly diverse and of considerable palaeobiogeographic interest. So far, only (Late) Campanian taxa have been described and illustrated. In the present paper, notes are presented on additional Campanian, Maastrichtian and Palaeogene taxa, namely Lampadocorys ? estermanni sp.nov., Lampadocorys ? sp....
