Age and synchronicity of planktonic foraminiferal bioevents across the Cenomanian – Turonian boundary interval (Late Cretaceous)

Falzoni, Francesca ; Petrizzo, Maria Rose ; Caron, Michèle ; Leckie, R. Mark ; Elderbak, Khalifa

In: Newsletters on Stratigraphy, 2018, vol. 51, no. 3, p. 343–380

The upper Cenomanian – lower Turonian is a key-stratigraphic interval, as it encompasses the Late Cretaceous supergreenhouse and a major perturbation of the global carbon cycle (i. e., Oceanic Anoxic Event 2) as evidenced by a global positive carbon isotope excursion and by the nearly world-wide deposition of organic-rich marine facies. A turnover in planktonic foraminiferal assemblages and...

New Law against an Old State : Land Restitution as a Transition to Justice in Post-Apartheid South Africa?

Zenker, Olaf

In: Development and Change, 2014, vol. 45, no. 3, p. 502-523

Based on a case study of the so-called ‘Kafferskraal’ land claim, this article scrutinizes the ongoing land restitution process in post-apartheid South Africa with regard to its capacity to provide a transition towards ‘justice’. After sketching the legal and institutional set-up of land restitution, the justice of the actual restitution process is explored with reference to conflicting...

A review of the fossil record of old world turtles of the clade pan-trionychidae

Georgalis, Georgios L. ; Joyce, Walter G.

In: Bulletin of the Peabody Museum of Natural History, 2017, vol. 58, no. 1, p. 115–208

Turtles of the clade Pan-Trionychidae have a rich fossil record in the Old World, ranging from the Early Cretaceous (Hauterivian) to the Holocene. The clade most probably originated in Asia during the Early Cretaceous but spread from there to the Americas and Europe by the Late Cretaceous, to India and Australia by the Eocene, and to Afro-Arabia by the Neogene. The presence of a single...

Remarks on the identification of the Albian/Cenomanian boundary and taxonomic clarification of the planktonic foraminifera index species globotruncanoides, brotzeni and tehamaensis

Petrizzo, Maria Rose ; Caron, Michèle ; Silva, Isabella Premoli

In: Geological Magazine, 2015, vol. 152, no. 3, p. 521-536

The planktonic foraminifera assemblage across the Global Boundary Stratotype Section and Point (GSSP) for the base of the Cenomanian Stage defined at Mont Risou (Haute-Alpes in France) is here restudied to clarify the identification and stratigraphic distribution of Thalmanninella globotruncanoides ( = Rotalipora globotruncanoides Sigal, 1948) and Pseudothalmanninella tehamaensis ( =...

Contribution to the understanding of the Ionian Basin sedimentary evolution along the eastern edge of Apulia during the Late Cretaceous in Albania

Le Goff, J. ; Cerepi, A. ; Swennen, R. ; Loisy, C. ; Caron, Michèle ; Muska, K. ; Desouky, H. El

In: Sedimentary Geology, 2015, vol. 317, p. 87–101

Integrated in the peri-Adriatic domain, the Ionian Basin extended along a NW-SE direction during the Late Cretaceous, limited on its sides by the Apulian and the Kruja platforms. The basinal/slope succession was studied in seven outcrops exposed in the Albanian fold-and-thrust belt. Sedimentological investigations, supported by bio- and chronostratigraphy were performed on calcareous Upper...
