Upper Devonian/Lower Carboniferous calcareous algae from the Fore-Carpathian Depression

Wiesław Bilan, Jan Golonka


The calcareous algae occurring in deposits at the boundary between the Upper Devonian and Lower Carboniferous which has been reached in boreholes located .in the Fore-Carpathian Depression (Southern Poland), are represented by twenty species ,(including six new ones) of Rhodophyta, Chlorophyta, Charophyta and Porostromata. These algae throve in a shallow-water marine basin, probably in a back-reef environment. As appears from their succession in profiles, these algae may be useful for stratigraphic correlation of the late-Paleozoic deposits of the Fore-Carpathian region.
