  Albian to Coniacian Zonation of the Western Plain of Israel. Cretaceous Research () 1, A planktonic biozonation of the Albian to Coniacian stages for the Western Coastal Plain of Israel, is proposed. Ten zones are described, based on the succession of the following genera: Ticinella, Thamanninella, Rotalipora and Margino by: 8. Isr. J.

The first book to synthesize the biostratigraphic and geological usefulness of planktonic foraminifera Includes a discussion of the recent advances being enabled by molecular studies of living. Good: A book that has been read but is in good condition. Very minimal damage to the cover including scuff marks, but no holes or tears. The dust jacket for hard covers may not be included. Binding has minimal wear. The majority of pages are undamaged with minimal creasing or tearing, minimal pencil underlining of text, no highlighting of text, no writing in Rating: % positive.

For the first time a Middle Albian age based on Simplorbitolina conula Schroeder can be established by foraminifera for part of the “Cenomanian” Naur Formation. The occurrence of complex agglutinated, warm and shallow water benthonic foraminifera indicates that sediments were deposited mostly under warm and shallow marine environmental. The first - and only - book to synthesize the whole biostratigraphic and geological usefulness of planktonic foraminifera, Biostratigraphic and Geological Significance of Planktonic Foraminifera unifies existing biostratigraphic schemes and provides an Seller Rating: % positive. a o ALBIAN >,E "'IL -F- 3 APTIAN _5 3 NEOCOMIAN.o TEXT-FIGURE 1 Globotruncana-Rotalipora lines, representing the general northern limits of keeled Cretaceous planktonic foraminifera (adapted from Bandy, a). Effects of latitude In modern oceans, the northern and southern bounda-. tonic foraminifera occur between Core 7, Section 2, and Core 9, Section 2, i.e., in an interval of approximately 48 meters. None has been found in the lowermost 8 meters of sediment immediately above the basalt. The abun-dance and preservation of planktonic foraminifera is best between the base of Core 7 and the upper part of Core 9.

  The results of foraminifera evaluation indicate that the Abakaliki Formation is barren of foraminifera species, whereas the Eze-Aku and Awgu formations have preponderance of planktonic foraminifera assemblages over benthic forms. The Eze-Aku Formation records an abundance of species of Hedbergella and a peak for Heterohelix. Only recently, a biostratigraphic study based on Creta- ceous planktonic foraminifera has been published for Gebel Areif El Naqa (AYVAD et al., ), Unfortunately, exact locations for the different parts of their composite section (AYYAD et al., Fig. 1) were not given which would be extremely important in the laterally highly vari- able syntectonic sedimentary system of the Areif El Naqa Fig. 2. Paraticinella rohriwas chosen as the most representative of the Aptian planktonic foraminiferal taxa and its test-size evolution was compared with the high-resolution record of redox and productivity geochemical proxies through the uppermost Aptian - lowermost Albian pelagic succession of Poggio le Guaine (central Italy).   It is represented by dark gray marlstone rich in belemnites. The planktonic foraminifera assemblage contains Leupoldina cabri, Globigerinella aptiensis along with Hedbergella bizonae, Hedbergella trocoidea and Planomalina cheniourensis. Unit 4 ( m thick).
