Stratigraphically Important Agglutinated Foraminifera in the Badenian (Miocene M4) of Poland

In the Miocene sediments of the Carpathian Foredeep of southern Poland, about 60 species of agglutinated foraminifera are distinguished, 38 of which are regarded as stratigraphically important (Figure 1). The assemblages vary in stratigraphie sequence from the lower to upper Badenian (Luczkowska, 1989), and are particularly rich in the deposits underlying the middle Badenian evaporites. Changes in the species composition of the assemblages is related to the type of substrate on the sea floor and to stratigraphie position.
