RÉSUMÉ R. A. Reyment Paleontologiska Institutionen, Uppsala Universitet, Box 558, S 75122 Uppsala, Sweden. Received 5/5/79, in rcviscd form 27/8/79, accepted 24/9/79. The interpretation of the origin of the South Atlantic Ocean made byoceanologists and paleontologists are shown to be in complete agreement. Severa! major phases in the opening of the ocean can be identified, · each of which had recognizable effects on the paleobiogeography of marine and land organisms. The occurrences of closely… 
Biostratigraphic and paleozoogeographic review of the upper aptian-albian ostracods of Riachuelo Formation, Sergipe-Alagoas basin, northeastern Brazil.
A biostratigraphic and paleozoogeographic revision of the upper Aptian-Albian ostracods of Riachuelo Formation, in the Sergipe-Alagoas Basin, Brazil, was conducted. The studied material comprised 336
THE UPPER AND MID-BATHYAL CENOZOIC OSTRACODE FAUNAS OF THE RIO GRANDE RISE FOUND ON LEG 72 DEEP SEA DRILLING PROJECT
From the study of the ostracodes of Sites 516, 517, and 518 in comparison with those of Sites 21, 22, and 357, we can show that a time lag (early to late Oliogene) existed between the formation of

Abstract During the Triassic, free dispersal of terrestrial vertebrates was possible in Pangaea; however provinciality appeared in Gondwana. Distribution of Triassic vertebrates may be explained even

Global stratigraphy, palaeobiogeography and palaeoecology of Albian–Maastrichtian pithonellid calcispheres: impact on Tethys configuration
This study reviews the stratigraphy, palaeobiogeography and palaeoecology of some important Albian–Maastrichtian pelagic calcispheres: Bonetocardiella conoidea, Pithonella ovalis, P. perlonga, P.

A biostratigraphic and paleozoogeographic revision of upper Aptian-Albian ostracods of the Riachuelo Formation, in the Sergipe-Alagoas Basin, Brazil, was conducted. The studied material comprised 336
Evolution of Cretaceous sediments in the Mamfe Basin, SW Cameroon: Depositional Environments, Palynostratigraphy, and Paleogeography
The Mamfe Basin is a WNW-ESE trending half-graben in southeastern Nigeria that extends into southwestern Cameroon. This basin is the southernmost part of the West and Central African rift system that
