6th Regional Symposium of the IFAA (July 1-5, 2009, Milano,Italy)
Following a consolidate tradition of our symposia, the scientific topics cover any aspects of calcareous algae and microbialites, including their present-day distribution and abundance. In addition, we are inviting to present your contribution to a cross-cut topic with strong implications in biology, palaeontology, sedimentology, geology and climatology: the quantification (in space or time, at any scale) of the carbonate production of calcareous algae. Although calcareous algae commonly occur both in the present-day shelf environments at all latitudes and in the fossil record, we still need a tentative quantification of their abundance, in space and time. Calcareous algae are sensitive to the expected consequences of global change, therefore our contribution will be particularly important to a wide scientific community, not only to algae specialists. Therefore, especially welcome are contributions aimed at the identification/delimitation of marine habitats dominated by calcareous algae, also by geophysical survey, and all approaches to the quantification of living/fossil calcareous algae in different environmental/paleoenvironmental settings.

Post-doctoral Fellowship, Bushveld Intelligence Centre, Department of Geology, University of Pretoria
To start in 2008, for a renewable one year contract (maximum is two years). Annual Fellowship is R100,000-00 (normally non-taxable), single return airfare from overseas (where relevant), plus field expenses.
The project is to carry out a holistic study of the tectonic and structural setting of the Bushveld Complex, within a framework of Transvaal and Waterberg Basins geodynamic development. Key topics to be addressed are given below (# s 4 to 6, particularly):
(1) To critically assess existing work on basin analysis of the Transvaal basin, and to fill in the gaps in the western part of that preservational basin, and in its adjacent eastern-Botswana portion;
(2) to carry out a basin analysis of the central Main Waterberg Basin, to complement more geographically limited extant studies along its southern and NE margins, and in the smaller Middelberg Basin;
(3) to fully examine, in detail the nature and history of the deposits of the Loskop, Glentig and Rust de Winter Formations (traditionally regarded as uppermost Transvaal units, but clearly syn-Bushveld molasse deposits, from the preliminary work of Jacques Martini [1998. The Loskop Formation and its relationship to the Bushveld Complex, South Africa, J. Afr. Earth Sci., 27/2, 193-222] on certain Loskop outcrops) in order to better understand spatial and chronological relations between the three suites of the Bushveld, the Rooiberg volcanics and these essentially syn-Bushveld Loskop sedimentary and lesser volcanic deposits. The structural effects of Bushveld mafic activity can be read, to a certain extent, from the nature and variability of these pan-Loskop deposits.
(4) To collate existing and collect new structural data on the Bushveld Complex (also relevant geophysical data) to build a regional data set.
(5) Most importantly, to link the evolution of the Bushveld Complex to the gedynamic history of its enclosing Transvaal and Waterberg Basins, and to existing cratonic architecture, and to post-Bushveld tectonic events.
(6) To establish the regional metamorphic history related to Bushveld intrusion and to integrate this with the above studies.

Revision of "Falaise de Blanche" (Lower Cretaceous) in Lebanon, with the definition of a Jezzinian Regional Stage
Sibelle Maksoud, Bruno Granier, Dany Azar, Raymond Gèze, Jean-Claude Paicheler & Josep A. Moreno-Bedmar.- The "Falaise de Blanche" is a prominent cliff, consisting mostly of Lower Cretaceous limestones that extends as linear outcrops over most of the Lebanese territory and provides geologists a remarkable reference for stratigraphic studies. However, until now, this unit was lacking a clear definition. We introduce herein the Jezzinian Regional Stage, the type-locality of which is at Jezzine. It equates as an unconformity-bounded unit and, per definition, it is framed by two discontinuities. Because we identified an additional, median sequence-boundary, poorly-expressed in the type-section but better at Aazour, only 4.5 km westward of Jezzine, the new regional stage implicitly spans two sequences. The lithostratigraphic framework being properly redefined, we were able to investigate time-constrained micropaleontological assemblages, consisting mostly of benthic foraminifers and calcareous algae. Typically Southern Tethysian, these assemblages contribute to high-resolution, holostratigraphic correlations with the Persian Gulf area, on the eastern part of the Arabian Plate. The Jezzinian interval correlates with the upper part of the Kharaibian Regional Stage (also known as "Thamama II" reservoir unit in the oil industry). In turn, the Jezzinian is indirectly correlated with the Northern Tethysian Urgonian stratigraphic units where it corresponds to a rather short interval encompassing the standard Barremian - Bedoulian stage boundary. Locally the upper discontinuity is associated to a significant intra-Bedoulian hiatus. The macrofossil assemblages found in the Jezzinian (echinids) and above it (ammonites) support, or at least do not contradict, our micropaleontological dating.- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/54359

Les genres Subgrossouvria Spath et Orionoides Spath (Ammonitina, Perisphinctidae) de l'Horizon à Leckenbyi (Callovien supérieur, Zone à Athleta) de Montreuil-Bellay (Maine-et-Loire, France) [The genera Subgrossouvria Spath and Orionoides Spath (Ammonitina, Perisphinctidae) from the Leckenbyi Horizon (Upper Callovian, Athleta Zone) of Montreuil-Bellay (Maine-et-Loire, France)]
Alain Bonnot, Pierre-Yves Boursicot & Patrice Ferchaud.- À Montreuil-Bellay (Maine-et-Loire, France), le premier banc d'âge Callovien supérieur (Horizon à Leckenbyi) a fourni une très abondante faune ammonitique (N=3275). Dans la famille des Perisphinctidae, à côté de Choffatia isabellae Bonnot et al. et du genre Pseudopeltoceras Spath, on trouve deux autres genres : le genre Subgrossouvria Spath est représenté par S. famula (Bean in Spath) et S. crassa Gérard & Contaut, le genre Orionoides Spath par O. indicus Spath. L'abondance et la qualité du matériel ont permis la description de l'ontogenèse et la figuration de macroconques et de microconques de ces trois espèces, parmi lesquels des adultes complets à péristome conservé. La diagnose du genre Orionoides, souvent mal interprété, a été amendée. L'extension stratigraphique de ces espèces est également précisée et leur devenir potentiel est envisagé. Nous avançons l'hypothèse que ces espèces ont colonisé la plate-forme nord-ouest européenne via la marge sud de la Téthys, comme Peltoceras marysae Bonnot et al. et Choffatia isabellae Bonnot et al. [In the Montreuil-Bellay area (Maine-et-Loire, France), the lowermost bed of the Upper Callovian (Leckenbyi Horizon) contains a very abundant ammonite fauna (N=3275). The Family Perisphinctidae is represented by Choffatia isabellae Bonnot et al., the genus Pseudopeltoceras Spath, the genus Subgrossouvria Spath, which includes S. famula (Bean in Spath) and S. crassa Gérard & Contaut, and the genus Orionoides Spath, which comprises O. indicus Spath. Thanks to the abundance and quality of the material, it was possible to describe and figure macroconchs and microconchs of these three species, including adult specimens with preserved peristome. The stratigraphical ranges of these taxa are also specified and their potential descendants can be considered. These species are unknown in the uppermost Middle Callovian, and we assume that they colonized the northwestern part of the European platform via the southern margin of the Tethys, as did Peltoceras marysae Bonnot et al. and Choffatia isabellae Bonnot et al.]- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/54363

Nannofossils and foraminifera from the Salamanca Formation (Paleocene) in Punta Peligro Norte (Chubut, Argentina)
Margarita Simeoni.- An assemblage of nannofossils from the Salamanca Formation is reported for the first time from the Punta Peligro Norte locality in the San Jorge Gulf Basin, Argentina. Several recognized nannofossils have a stratigraphic distribution within the lower Danian. The assemblage of nannofossils and associated foraminifera is here discussed taking into account biostratigraphic and paleoecological aspects.- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/54361

Ostracodes from the Upper Cretaceous deposits of the Potiguar Basin, northeastern Brazil: taxonomy, paleoecology and paleobiogeography. Part 2: Santonian-Campanian
Enelise Katia Piovesan, Maria Cristina Cabral, Jean-Paul Colin, Gerson Fauth & Cristianini Trescastro Bergue.- Sixty-four Ostracoda taxa were recorded from the Santonian?Campanian of Potiguar Basin, northeastern Brazil. The following new species were described: Triebelina anterotuberculata, Triebelina obliquocostata, Cophinia ovalis, Fossocytheridea potiguarensis, Ovocytheridea anterocompressa, Ovocytheridea triangularis, Perissocytheridea jandairensis, Semicytherura musacchioi and Protocosta babinoti. The faunal association indicates predominantly shallow marine environments, intercalated with typically mixohaline levels. These species are mostly endemic, although the presence of six species common to West and North Africa shows that migration was still possible by the end of the Cretaceous.- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/54151

Temporal and latitudinal trends in the biodiversity of European Atlantic Cenozoic gastropod (Mollusca) faunas. A base for the history of biogeographic provinces
Pierre Lozouet.- A general overview of the biodiversity of the marine fauna during the Tertiary period is developed in the context of the biogeographical evolution of the European realm. This study combines a reappraisal of the literature with a unique first-hand source of data on the richest marine group (the gastropods) from over a 25 million year period (Early Oligocene to Late Miocene). In total the French deposits have yielded more than 10,000 species from the Eocene to the Upper Miocene. Evidence of significant bias in the fossil record is pointed out for the Palaeocene (Danian) and Upper Eocene (Priabonian). For the period considered (Palaeocene to Late Miocene, ca 50 million years) the second highest diversity is reported in the Late Oligocene. This study reveals also the importance of pre-Miocene extinctions of genera. The Oligocene was when the latitudinal differentiation of the faunas was greatest. The local generic gastropod richness ranges from 59 (Rupelian of Belgium) to 494 (Chattian of Aquitaine). A clear trend towards homogenization appears in the Late Oligocene which leads to the development of a vast biogeographical region named Euro-West Africa. This faunal evolutionary pattern has never been demonstrated before and is a novel feature of the biogeography of the Eastern-Atlantic region.- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/54150
