The Oligocene–Miocene transition is characterized by a low degree of biotic turnover (extinction plus origination) in many microfossil groups and especially in planktonic foraminifera. Few species appear, evolve, and disappear across this boundary, and the existence of transitional forms between key species makes biostratigraphic resolution of the boundary interval difficult. The boundary is officially located in the type section using magnetostratigraphic criteria, and the first occurrence (FO… CONTINUE READING
