Morphometric Analyses of Late Paleozoic Fusulinid Foraminifera


  Halbouty 318


The use of morphometric and statistical analyses on current and past identification of late Paleozoic fusulinid foraminifera in the Wolfcamp Hills, Glass Mountains, Texas.

Identify issues with fusulinid biostratigraphy along the Pennsylvanian-Permian boundary and suggest a better regime to ID key fusulinid biostratigraphic indicators for this boundary in the United States.

Interests in ontogeny (growth stages) and environmental preferences of certain fusulinid foraminifera taxa.
