Key Features

* 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 forms
* Opens a new field of dating planktonic foraminifera in carbonates and expands their usefulness in hydrocarbon exploration

Description

Foraminifera are free-living protozoa that grow an elaborate, solid calcite skeleton. Their well-marked evolutionary record makes them of outstanding value in zonal stratigraphy. The role of fossil planktonic foraminifera as markers for biostratigraphical zonation and correlation underpins most drilling of marine sedimentary sequences and is key to hydrocarbon exploration. Biostratigraphic and Geological Significance of Planktonic Foraminifera presents a comprehensive analysis of existing data on fossil planktonic foraminifera genera and their phylogenetic evolution in time and space. In addition, the book contains new, unpublished data on carbonate thin sections with identified fossil planktonic foraminifera from the Far East to offshore Brazil and South Africa.

Quotes and reviews

"It would thus seem almost inconceivable that a single work of any scientific depth, and not just a superficial review, could contain all the basic information that researchers would need to work with the larger foraminifera. This, however, was the challenge that the author has successfully met in the work under review."

Marcelle BouDagher Fadel has given the scientific community, and in particular stratigraphers and micropaleontologists, a single comprehensive source for basic relevant information about one of the major contributors to our knowledge of earth history, the strange but long-enduring group of giant protists known as the larger foraminifera". Hector Bismuth, micropaleontology, vol. 57, no. 6, p. 556, 2011
