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.

Glaciers have always played an important role in history, and currently, they are observed as climate change sentinels. Glacier melt rate is increasing, and its mass balance is continuously negative. This issue deserves accurate and in-depth studies.

Presented in a refreshingly non-linear format, the book summarises much of what we know about this country's geological history, discussing the fossil record and evolution of life across the continent, describing its mineral and energy reserves.

Where do they come from? What are they made of? How can they be distinguished? What is their value? The subject as a whole has been treated from the mineralogical standpoint, as this affords the best basis for a thorough knowledge of gems.
