Pliocene. Since Globorotalia truncatulinoides truncatulinoides is widely used in oceanic areas to recognize the base of the Pleistocene, the same time interval (around to Ma) is ascribed to the upper Pliocene by some Mediterranean scholars and to the Pleistocene by workers in oceanic sediments. The abandonment of the tripartition of the. Abstract. Globorotalia assemblages are studied from Pliocene deposits in Crete\ud (Greece), Italy, the Gulf of Mexico region, and New Zealand. In each\ud assemblage counts and measurements were performed on 10 test characters.\ud The taxonomy is based on (1) biconvex or planoconvex shape, (2) "growth"\ud patterns of size ratios, (3) frequency distributions of discrete characters on\ud the : F.M. Gradstein. In the Mediterranean Pliocene, ecobiostratigraphical data, recognized all over the region, are the delayied re-entry of some planktonic (Globorotalia scitula) and benthic species. Globorotalia tosaensis tenuitheca, with transitional stages in Cores , Globorotalia truncatulinoides truncatulinoides becomes fully developed in Core The Pliocene-Pleistocene boundary is marked by the appearance of typical Globorotalia truncatulinoides. The thick-walled Globorotalia truncatulinoides pachytheca evolved from Size: 4MB.

Globorotalia puncticuloides is a related species (Hornibrook et al., , Scott et al., ). Because they are the likely source of the lectotype, lower Pliocene Mediterranean populations typify the species. Many Mediterranean and North Atlantic specimens are only lightly crusted and some have a large, often high-arched aperture (Fig. 6, #18 Cited by: The first appearance of G. inflata in the Mediterranean area is considered an important biostratigraphic event marking the base of the last zone of the Pliocene. It is recorded up to the Holocene. G. inflata is very common in the western Mediterranean and is scarce or absent in the eastern Mediterranean (Bizon & Müller, ).
