Abstract

Two sections located in the northwestern part of the Palaeogene Adriatic carbonate platform (PgAdCP) were measured and sampled to document the complexity of changes at the Palaeocene–Eocene boundary. Carbon and oxygen isotope records in combination with a detailed study of larger benthic foraminifera (LBF) are used to describe the turnover of foraminifera and to refine the shallow benthic zonation scheme.

Keywords
