New Albian ammonite faunas from Semelenberg (Alpstein, Switzerland) and their paleoecology

The Alpstein (northeastern Switzerland) has yielded a relatively high diversity of Cretaceous macrofossils. Here, new discoveries of invertebrate fossils from a new locality of the early to late

Phylogenetic study of the family Nostoceratidae (Cephalopoda: Ammonoidea) in the northwestern Pacific realm

The family Nostoceratidae is one of the heteromorph ammonoid families of Late Cretaceous. Although many studies have revealed parts of the phylogeny of Nostoceratidae, other parts of the phylogeny of

Upper Albian, Cenomanian and Lower Turonian stratigraphy, ammonite and inoceramid bivalve faunas from the Cauvery Basin, Tamil Nadu, South India

The lithostratigraphy, biostratigraphy, sequence stratigraphy, ammonite and inoceramid faunas of the Upper Albian, Cenomanian, and Lower Turonian Karai Formation, the highest unit of the Uttatur

Record of a dense succession of drowning phases in the Alpstein mountains, north-eastern Switzerland: part I—the Lower Cretaceous Tierwis Formation (latest Hauterivian to latest Barremian)

In the Alpstein massif of north-eastern Switzerland, a complete succession of uppermost Hauterivian to uppermost Barremian condensed hemipelagic sediments crops out. This succession is known as

Record of a dense succession of drowning phases in the Alpstein mountains, northeastern Switzerland: Part II—the Lower Cretaceous Schrattenkalk Formation (late Barremian)

The Schrattenkalk Formation represents a complete succession of Lower Cretaceous shallow-water carbonate platform series cropping out in the Alpstein massif of north-eastern Switzerland. The



Cenomanian ammonites from the condensed deposits of the Helvetic Domain (western Alps, France and Switzerland)

The Cenomanian ammonites of the Helvetic Domain (French-Swiss Western Alps) are revised and illustrated for the first time since the middle of the Nineteenth Century. The faunas occur in remarkable

The late Late Albian (Mortoniceras fallax Zone) cephalopod fauna from the Bracquegnies formation at Strépy-Thieu (Hainaut, southern Belgium)

Excavations in 1989-1990 for the construction of a boat lift near the villages of Strepy and Thieu, east of Mons (province of Hainaut, southern Belgium), exposed a 40-metre section of the

Biostratigraphy, sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy of the latest Hauterivian – Early Barremian drowning episode of the Northern Tethyan margin (Altmann Member, Helvetic nappes, Switzerland)

Abstract.During the Early Cretaceous, major palaeoceanographic changes are mirrored on the northern Tethyan carbonate platform by changes in the carbonate factory and by platform drowning. The

Evolution of the Helvetic shelf (Switzerland) during the Barremian-early Aptian : paleoenvironmental, paleogeographic and paleoceanographic controlling factors

The Early Cretaceous has experienced the development of large shallow-water carbonate platform in tropical and subtropical regions, favoured by exceptionally warm climatic conditions, optimal trophic

Cretaceous faunas from Zululand and Natal, South Africa. The ammonite Subfamily Stoliczkaiinae Breistroffer, 1953

The representatives of the ammonite subfamily Stoliczkaiinae Breistroffer, 1953, from the Upper Albian and Lower Cenomanian part of the Mzinene Formation of northern KwaZulu-Natal are described, and

Albian ammonites from northern Pakistan

The occurrence of rich Albian ammonite faunas in what is now northern Pakistan has been known for more than 80 years, but there has been no comprehensive account of the assemblages present. A total

Paleobiogeography of Late Cretaceous Ammonoids

Ammonoids were dominant elements of marine Cretaceous faunas. Their fossils are important biostratigraphic indicators, in some cases with worldwide distribution. Their paleobiogeographic
