  • Benthic foraminifers are studied from the Lower and Middle Jurassic of the western Basque-Cantabrian Basin (sections Tudanca, Aguilar de Campoó and Barrios de Villadiegos). Five benthic foraminiferal assemblages are recognized, each one related to a specifi c trophic palaeoenvironment created by palaeoceanography and relative sea-level change. The Astacolus-Lingulina-assemblage occurs in Lower Sinemurian transgressive deposits with high wave-energy. The Laevidentalina-Eoguttulina-assemblage is… CONTINUE READING
