Stratigraphy of Upper Cretaceous–Palaeogene sequences in the southern and eastern Menderes Massif (western Turkey)
Abstract.The stratigraphy of the uppermost levels of the Menderes Massif is controversial and within its details lie vital constraints to the tectonic evolution of south-western Turkey. Our primaryExpand
A Synoptical Classification of the Bivalvia (Mollusca)
Preface This classification summarizes the suprageneric taxonomy of the Bivalvia for the upcoming revision of the Bivalvia volumes of the Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology, Part N.
Miocene transgression in the central and eastern parts of the Sivas Basin (Central Anatolia, Turkey) and the Cenozoic palaeogeographical evolution
We present here a reappraisal of the tectonic setting, stratigraphy and palaeogeography of the central part of the Sivas Basin from Palaeocene to late Miocene. The Sivas Basin is located in theExpand
Presence and tectonic significance of Cretaceous rudist species in the so-called Permo-Carboniferous Göktepe Formation, central Menderes metamorphic massif, western Turkey
A schist sequence of the central Menderes Massif, in which lenses of fossiliferous marbles are found, is observed in the southern flank of the Aydın Mountain, north of Köşk (Aydın), around EğrikavakExpand
Rudist bearing Upper Cretaceousmetamorphic sequences of the Menderes Massif (Western Turkey)
The Menderes Metamorphic Massif is located between the Izmir-Ankara zone to the north, and theLycianinappes and Bey Daglari platform to the south in the western part of Turkey. The massif consists ofExpand
The Madenli (Central Taurides) Upper Cretaceous platform carbonate succession: Benthic foraminiferal biostratigraphy and platform evolution
Abstract The Upper Cretaceous succession in the Madenli area (western Central Taurides, Southern Turkey) consists of platform carbonate rocks deposited in entirely peritidal environments, which areExpand
Larger foraminiferal biostratigraphy of the middle Tertiary of Bey Dağlari Autochton, Menderes-Taurus Platform, Turkey
Larger foraminifera are recognized from the middle Tertiary (Oligocene-Miocene) carbonate sediments, Bey Dalari Autochton, which is a segment of a Tethyan Platform. Eight diagnostic species and theirExpand
Biogeographic distribution of rudists and benthic foraminifera: An approach to Campanian-Maastrichtian palaeobiogeography of Turkey
Abstract Transgressive sequences of Campanian-Maastrichtian Stages in Turkey generally begin with medium- to coarse-grained clastics and continue with shallow marine limestones, reefal limestones andExpand
Stratigraphic organisation, spatial distribution, palaeoenvironmental reconstruction, and demise of Lower Cretaceous (Barremian-lower Aptian) carbonate platforms of the Western Pontides (Black Sea
Barremian-Lower Aptian platform carbonates (''Urgonian limestones'') of the northern margin of the Istanbul zone extend from Zonguldak to the Kurucasile area along the Black Sea coast. NewExpand
Description of Paracaprinula syriaca Piveteau (Hippuritoidea, Plagioptychidae) and a revised age of ophiolite obduction on the African-Arabian Plate in southeastern Turkey
Paracaprinula syriaca, Piveteau (1939, Journal de Conchyliologie 83, 27-34), is described in detail for the first time. While the original description did not provide evidence for characters thatExpand
