NB The short diagnoses are used in the tables of daughter-taxa to act as quick summaries of the differences between e.g. species of one genus. They have initially been copied from the diagnostic characters/distinguishing features sections of the Eocene and Paleocene Atlases, they will be edited as the site is developed.
Biogeography and Palaeobiology
Last occurrence (top): within Piacenzian Stage (2.59-3.60Ma, top in Piacenzian stage). Data source: Total of range of species in this database
First occurrence (base): within Burdigalian Stage (15.97-20.44Ma, base in Burdigalian stage). Data source: Total of range of species in this database
Plot of occurrence data:
- Range-bar - range as quoted above, pink interval top occurs in, green interval base occurs in.
- Triangles indicate an event for which a precise placement has been suggested
- Neptune data: This is a higher taxon page so Neptune data is not plotted. See also: customisable plot Parent: Globigerinidae
