Part of the Springer Geology book series (SPRINGERGEOL)


The study concerns the ostracod local biozonation and interbasinal correlation of the Frasnian strata within the East European Platform. The biozones are mainly environmentally controlled local assemblage zones. The taxonomic compositions and stratigraphic distributions show great similarities that have proved to be useful for intrabasinal correlations.
