Abstract The record of organic-walled dinoflagellate cysts in deep-sea facies across the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary is poorly known. A detailed study of uppermost Maastrichtian-lowermost Danian Tethyan deep-sea flysch sediments deposited below the carbonate compensation depth at Uzgruň, in the Czech Republic, has yielded numerous and relatively well-preserved dinoflagellate cysts. Their distribution allows the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary to be placed within a 73 cm interval, within which an…

Abstract. The lower Oligocene (Rupelian) successions are climate record archives of the early icehouse world in the Cenozoic. Even though the number of studies focussing on the generally cold
New species of the dinoflagellate cyst genus Svalbardella Manum, 1960, emend. from the Paleogene and Neogene of the northern high to middle latitudes
Abstract. Species of the fusiform peridiniacean dinoflagellate cyst genera Svalbardella Manum, 1960, emend. (Eocene–Oligocene) and Palaeocystodinium Alberti, 1961 (Late Cretaceous–Miocene), have been
Inoceramid bivalve and dinoflagellate cyst integrated biostratigraphy of the topmost Campanian–Maastrichtian in a part of the Western Fore-Balkan Mountains, northwest Bulgaria
We present the inoceramid and dinoflagellate cyst record from the topmost Campanian– Maastrichtian strata of three key sections of the Western Fore-Balkan Mountains, northwest Bulgaria. The following


Dinoflagellate and calcareous nannofossil response to sea-level change in Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary sections
Stratigraphic sections in south-central Alabama were studied to test palynological evidence of sea-level change across the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary. New evidence from both calcareous nannofossils
