Biostratigraphic and Geological Significance of Planktonic Foraminifera
by Marcelle K. BouDagher-Fadel
Publisher: UCL Press 2015
Number of pages: 320
The role of fossil planktonic foraminifera as markers for biostratigraphical zonation and correlation underpins most drilling of marine sedimentary sequences and is key to hydrocarbon exploration. The first - and only - book to synthesize the whole biostratigraphic and geological usefulness of planktonic foraminifera, unifies existing biostratigraphic schemes and provides an improved correlation reflecting regional biogeographies.

Lyell, while still a young man, determined that he would endeavour to put geology -- then only beginning to rank as a science -- on a more sound and philosophical basis. To accomplish this purpose, he spared no labour, shrank from no fatigue.
