Abstract


Taksonomia i stratygrafia miosporowa górnego dewonu i najniższego karbonu Pomorza Zachodniego

Five local miospore zones, six subzones and two assemblages are distinguished for the Frasnian to lower Toumaisian deposits in the Kolobrzeg region (western Pomerania): assemblage I, Membrabaculisporis radiatus-Tholisporites densus (RD), Membrabaculisporis radiatus-Cymbosporites boafeticus (RB), Lagenoisporites immensus-Diducites poljessicus (IP) Zone, assemblage II, Tumulispora rarituberculata (Ra) and Convolutispora major (Ma) Zone. The first three biozones and the two assemblages are new in this region. The local miospores zones distinguished in western Pomerania are correlated with the European standard miospore and conodont zonations. Two new miospore species and one new variety are described, two species is emended.
