In this research, biostratigraphy and paleo-ecological implications related to the carbonates of the Asmari Formation located at the Naura anticline, Interior Fars of the Zagros Basin, Iran, are discussed. The Asmari Formation at the study area is Rupelian–Chattian in age. Age was determined by the occurrence of 22 genera and 41 species which led to identification of four faunal assemblages: (1, Globigerina–Tuborotalia cerroazulensis–Hantkenina; 2, Nummulites vascus–Nummulites fichteli; 3… CONTINUE READING
