The Amazon at sea: Onset and stages of the Amazon River from a marine record, with special reference to Neogene plant turnover in the drainage basin
The Amazon submarine fan is a large sediment apron situated offshore Para (Brazil) and represents the most distal extent of the Amazon River. The age of onset of this transcontinental river remainsExpand
Taxonomy of limnic Ostracoda (Crustacea) from the Quiricó Formation, Lower Cretaceous, São Francisco basin, Minas Gerais State, Southeast Brazil
Abstract. The present work presents a detailed taxonomic study on Ostracoda from the Quiricó Formation, Areado Group, São Francisco Basin, Brazil. The samples were collected from three outcrops inExpand
The Effects of the Inception of Amazonian Transcontinental Drainage During the Neogene on the Landscape and Vegetation of the Solimões Basin, Brazil
ABSTRACT Amazonia covers nearly 50% of Brazil. The history of this biome is marked by many changes in the landscape caused mainly by the Central and Northern Andes uplift. This event has influencedExpand
Reassessment of the genus Sergipella Krömmelbein, 1967 (Ostracoda, Trachyleberididae), uppermost Aptian-Albian of Brazil and West Africa: Taxonomy and paleogeographic distribution
Abstract A revision and a redescription of the external and internal morphology of the carapace, ontogeny and sexual dimorphism of Sergipella transatlantica Krommelbein, 1967, from the uppermostExpand
Late Cretaceous marine fossils and seawater incursion events in the Songliao Basin, NE China
Abstract The Songliao Basin is the largest non-marine oil-bearing basin in China. Because of the absence of substantial evidence, the hypothesis of seawater incursion events into the Songliao BasinExpand
Late Cenozoic sea level changes evidenced by ostracodes in the Pelotas basin, southernmost Brazil
Abstract Ostracodes recovered from sediments in seven onshore boreholes within the Pelotas basin, State of Rio Grande do Sul, indicate several continuous nearshore environments and at least fourExpand
Taxonomy of Limnic Ostracoda (Crustacea) from the Alagamar Formation, Middle–Upper Aptian, Potiguar Basin, Northeastern Brazil
Abstract Fifteen limnic ostracodes species have been recorded in the Alagamar Formation, Potiguar Basin: Cypridea araripensis Silva, 1978a; Cypridea? sp., Harbinia sinuata (Krömmelbein and Weber,Expand
Zoogeography of Holocene Podocopina (Ostracoda) from the Brazilian Equatorial shelf
Faunal similarities between these provinces are at the generic rather than species level; exceptions are few and consist of conservative Tethyan species that are cosmopolitan. Expand
Recent Ostracoda (Arthropoda, Crustacea) from São Pedro-São Paulo Archipelago, Brazil: a preliminary approach
The present study analyses ostracods from sedimentary samples collected in the Sao Pedro-Sao Paulo Archipelago, a small set of remote rock islands located Northeastern to the Brazilian coast, and identified thirteen species, nine of which are probably new and have not been observed elsewhere. Expand
