Early Paleogene planktic foraminifera in thin-sections – an experiment on isolated specimens from the Fore-Magura Thrust Sheet (Polish Outer Carpathians)

Abstract


This paper describes results of an experiment aimed mainly at obtaining random thin-sections of isolated specimens of planktic foraminifera determined to a species level. Twenty species of uppermost Paleocene-Middle Eocene planktic foraminifera from pelagic variegated marls of the Fore-Magura Thrust Sheet have been chosen for this experiment. These planktic foraminifera belong to the genera Chiloguembelina, Turborotalia, Acarinina, Morozovella, Muricoglobigerina, Subbotina and Parasubbotina. Their SEM images, stereomicroscope photos of isolated specimens, and the experimental thin-sections along with their systematics and stratigraphic ranges are presented.
