Abstract Calcareous nannofossil and planktonic foraminifera biostratigraphic datums are correlated with carbon isotope stratigraphy across the upper Santonian–lower Campanian transition from Ain Zouakra outcrop (Elles area) in north-western Tunisia. Twenty two calcareous microplankton bio-events are identified and discussed, including 11 planktonic foraminiferal and 11 nannofossil events. The studied upper Santonian–lower Campanian succession can be divided into five nannofossil zones (CC17/UC13...

The biostratigraphic importance, current zonations, and potential for the recognition of the standard chronostratigraphic boundaries of five palaeontological groups (benthic foraminifers, ammonites, belemnites, inoceramid bivalves and echinoids), critical for the stratigraphy of the Santonian through Maastrichtian (Upper Cretaceous) of extra-Carpathian Poland, are presented and discussed. The summary is based on recent studies in selected sections of southern Poland (Nida Synclinorium; Pulawy Tr...

Abstract The uppermost Cretaceous (upper Campanian-Maastrichtian) pelagic successions from the Malatya Basin (NW Malatya, eastern Anatolia) were studied by 688 samples, which were collected from five stratigraphic sections in the Hekimhan area. The pelagic deposits conformably overlie rudist bearing shallow-water limestones and are overlain conformably by Maastrichtian dolomites and unconformably by Paleocene - Eocene deposits, respectively. The pelagic successions in the Hekimhan area comprise ...

The magnetic polarities of the upper Upper Campanian–Lower Maastrichtian interval of the Middle Vistula River composite section (central Poland), were studied. Sixty-six hand-oriented samples for palaeomagnetic studies were taken from the sections of Raj, Raj North, Podole, Kludzie and Dziurkow. The inter-correlation between them is based primarily on bio-events. The sampled rocks generally revealed a very weak magnetic signal, however quite reliable results were obtained. The whole interval stu...

Abstract The Tunisian topmost Le Kef Formation and Abiod Formation were the focus of strontium isotopes numeric age dating. A representative outcrop section in NW Tunisia near Le Kef town (El Djebil section) constituted the main study material. In addition, a small outcrop section (Kodiet ez Zarbia) in NW Tunisia, equivalent of the base of the overlying El Haria Formation, was also examined. Results were compared to previous numeric dating by Mabrouk et al. (2005) of the Aleg (lateral equivalent...

Summary paleomaps of global continental vegetation from the Jurassic through the Pliocene were prepared (based on the literature) and used to define an area cladogram. Bouvier's natural classification of velvet worms (phylum Onychophora) was used to define a taxonomiclgeographic cladogram of onychophorans for all regions where they are found today. Both cladograms show the same sequence oC geographic vicariance. Thus, the paleogeographic model is supported by the taxonomic evidence. The paper in...

Abstract Dinoflagellate cyst assemblages from a well-exposed uppermost Cretaceous section at Zumaia (northern Spain) provide a basis for comparison with previous biostratigraphic and magnetostratigraphic studies on the problematic location of the Campanian-Maastrichtian boundary in the section. The position of the last occurrence of Corradinisphaeridium horridum and first common occurrence of Alterbidinium acutulum , correspond well with the bioevents defining the Campanian-Maastrichtian boundar...

Abstract The Levantine high productivity sequence is a product of an extensive upwelling system that operated in the Late Cretaceous along the SE Tethyan margin. This system resulted in the deposition of a unique sequence of carbonate, chert, porcellanite, phosphorite and organic-rich (oil shale) sediments in a series of basins located proximally and marginally to the upwelling center. This study presents a detailed and updated chronostratigraphic framework for the high productivity sequence in ...

Species of the benthonic foraminiferal genus Bolivinoides provide a refined biostratigraphic biozonation for the Late Campanian to Early Maastrichtian (Late Cretaceous) Shiranish Formation in NE Iraq. Three biozones and two subzones are identified: the Bolivinoides decoratus Biozone (Late Campanian) subdivided into a lower B. decoratus Subzone and upper B. laevigatus Subzone; the B. miliaris Biozone (Earliest Maastrichtian); and the B. draco Biozone (late Early Maastrichtian). These zones can be...
