D4 Mesozoic and Cenozoic planktonic foraminiferal evolutionary history and paleobiology: New insights and interpretations
bottom
top

Summary

This session will present recent advances in our understanding of the evolution, diversity changes and extinction events among the Mesozoic and Cenozoic planktonic foraminifera. The session will emphasize important new insights that have resulted from study of remarkably well preserved foraminiferal assemblages in sediments dated as old as 115 Ma., which have led to many new ideas on the taxonomy, phylogeny, depth ecology, and biodiversity history.
