NEOGENE - RECENT FORAMINIFERA AND BIOSTRATIGRAPHY: SOME NEW ZEALAND STUDIES
This site refers to some studies of Neogene - Recent foraminifera and biostratigraphy in the New Zealand region which may be useful to the research community. The main focus is on the systematics and biostratigraphy of Neogene globorotaliid taxa, principally those present in southwest Pacific Pliocene - Pleistocene strata. Also included are bibliographies and summary stratigraphic distributions of significant benthic and planktonic taxa.
