Distribution and diversity of ostracode assemblages from the Hamlin Shale and the Americus Limestone (Permian, Wolfcampian) in northeastern Kansas

  title={Distribution and diversity of ostracode assemblages from the Hamlin Shale and the Americus Limestone (Permian, Wolfcampian) in northeastern Kansas},
  author={R. Peterson and R. L. Kaesler},
Patterns of distribution and diversity of assemblages of Ostracoda in the uppermost Hamlin Shale (Admire Group, Wolfcampian, Permian) and the Americus Limestone (Council Grove Group, Wolfcampian, Permian) in northeastern Kansas can be attributed to temporal and geographic changes in the environments of deposition of the host strata. Four lithofacies within the uppermost Hamlin Shale have been recognized: lagoonal, carbonate mudflat, intertidal shoal and beach, and nonmarine. Four lithofacies… Expand
Distribution and Diversity of Nearshore Ostracoda: Environmental Control in the Early Permian
Limestone and shale beds in the lower Americus Limestone (Permian, Wolfcampian) of the Midcontinent of North America were deposited in four contemporaneous environments: tidal flat, incipient lagoon,Expand
The Florena Shale (Permian, Wolfcampian) of the Midcontinent of North America was deposited in a restricted marine basin. Shifting environments due to marine regression caused a gradual change in theExpand
Micropalaeontology of the Permian Marls of Merbah el Oussif (Jebel Tebaga, Tunisia) with special emphasis on the Ostracods
The Marls of Merbah el Oussif are part of the Permian series of the Jebel Tebaga of Médénine in Tunisia. They belong to the uppermost Murghabian, a stage intermediate between the Wordian and theExpand
Conodonts, radiolarians and ostracodes in the Permian E-Lert Formation, Loei Fold Belt, Indochina Terrane, Thailand
Abstract Conodonts are rare in the Permian carbonates of Indochina but abundant conodonts and ostracodes have been obtained from turbiditic limestones of the Permian E-Lert Formation along withExpand
Temporal and spatial distribution of ostracodes across the Pennsylvanian–Permian boundary interval in eastern North America
Abstract Ostracodes recovered from eastern North American coal measures in the Appalachian, Illinois, and Maritimes Basins have the potential to resolve the temporal and spatial relationships of theExpand
Middle Permian (Late Guadalupian) foraminifers from Dark Canyon, Guadalupe Mountains, New Mexico
Late Capitanian foraminifers are described from two cores taken by Amoco on the north side of the entrance of Dark Canyon. The Amoco #1 core (400ft) penetrates proximal forereef debris of the TansillExpand
Upper Permian and lowermost Triassic stratigraphy, facies and ostracods in NW Iran - implications for the P/T extinction event
Ostracod faunas from Upper Permian to Lower Triassic shelf deposits of Northwestern Iran were investigated with re- spect to their stratigraphical range, palaeoecology and extinction patterns. FaunalExpand
Early Permian Carbonitidae (Ostracoda): ontogeny, affinity, environment and systematics
An assemblage of four Carbonita species was deposited with charophytes, lungfishes and lysorophids in a lenticular mudstone from a Cisuralian freshwater pond deposit from the lowest Permian, indicating perhaps a stressed and unstable environment. Expand
Taxonomy and significance of the nonmarine ostracoda from the Late Carboniferous and Early Permian Appalachian Basin, United States
Late Carboniferous and early Permian Ostracoda from the Appalachian Basin include nonmarine genera that reveal taxo- nomically valuable information. Coal and mudrock beds from Pennsylvania and WestExpand
Ostracods of the Permian-Triassic Khuff Formation, Saudi Arabia: palaeoecology and palaeobiogeography
Ostracods were recovered for the first time from outcrops of the Permian-Triassic Khuff Formation in central Saudi Arabia. The fauna is exceptional in that the Khuff lithofacies were not consideredExpand


Upper Carboniferous ostracode assemblages from a mixed carbonate–terrigenous-mud environment
The Upper Carboniferous Beil Limestone Member (Lecompton Formation; Virgilian) from the Midcontinent of North America was deposited in a tropical, shallow-marine environment in which varying amountsExpand
Quantitative re-evaluation of ecology and distribution of recent foraminifera and Ostracoda of Todos Santos Bay, Baja California, Mexico
Environmental and faunal data on Foraminifera (WAL -roN, 1955) and Ostracoda (BENSON, 1959) from Todos Santos Bay, Baja California, were used to test applicability of quantitative methods ofExpand
Algal Mats, Cryptalgal Fabrics, and Structures, Hamelin Pool, Western Australia
Cryptalgal sediments and structures in Hamelin Pool, Western Australia, are formed by interactions between blue-green algae, which trap and bind sediment particles, and a variety of mechanical andExpand
Ordovician geography and faunal provinces deduced from trilobite distribution
Lists of families and genera of trilobites from the stratigraphical series of the Ordovician have been compiled, using information considered adequate from various areas in the world. DissimilaritiesExpand
Quantitative Study of Trempealeauian (Latest Cambrian) Trilobite Distribution in North America
Faunal lists were compiled for the presence or absence of 94 genera from 16 regions. Four similarity coefficients (Simple Matching, Dice, Jaccard, and Otsuka) were computed for the data matrix in QExpand
Faunal diversity in the deep-sea
Abstract Analysis of deep-sea benthic samples gathered with a new collecting device reveals a greater diversity (defined ab absolute number of species) of fauna in single environments than has everExpand
The purpose of the present study is to review recent and fossil patterns of species diversity and to attempt to make some assessment of the progress in explaining the observed patterns. Expand
Sandstones and Channels in Upper Pennsylvanian and Lower Permian in Kansas
During recent field work in Kansas, many channel sandstones were discovered in the upper Pennsylvanian and lower Permian rocks. The new channels originated in the Willard, Pierson Point, Langdon,Expand
Species Diversity: Benthonic Foraminifera in Western North Atlantic
Diversity peaks occur at abyssal depths of greater than 2500 meters and 100 to 200 meters and the peak at 35 to 45 meters is due to species equitability, whereas the other two peaks correspond to an increase in the number of species. Expand
Analysis of Data from Biological Surveys of Streams: Diversity and Sample Size
: Brillouin's equation (H) for species diversity from information theory is to be preferred for the purposes of applied ecology over the equation of Shannon (H′) or the more commonly used approximateExpand
