Population Distribution off the coast
The Yegua Formation is well constrained through micropaleontological analyses to approximately two million years of the late middle Eocene, spanning the entirety of planktonic foraminiferal
zone P14 and part of P15 (Meckel and Galloway 1996).
Bottom currents are generally sluggish to the south (Shannon, 1985), and the seafloor is characterized by quartz sands, diatomaceous ooze, and foraminiferal
deposits (Bailey and Rogers, 1997).
In the Sula River section they are represented by crinoid--foraminiferal
packstone interbedded with foraminiferal
grainstone bearing numerous colonial corals (Fig.
On this connecting theme, and with apologies for a petty comment from my own parish, may I request that subsequent printings of this book--a great and fit work destined to survive and thrive well into the next millennium--correct the numerous palaeontological errors scattered throughout: foraminiferal
tests are generally calcareous, not siliceous; Pangaea did not congeal until the late Palaeozoic, and therefore did not exist during the Ordovician and Devonian mass dyings.

In this article one stratigraphic subsurface section was chosen and subjected to detailed microfacies analysis based mainly on the distribution of Oligo-Miocene foraminiferal

Coccoliths are formed almost exclusively of calcium carbonate, as most magnesium is expelled by metabolic processes within the cells, whereas foraminiferal
shells contain a much higher concentration of magnesium.
White (2002) described the taphonomy of the encrusting foraminiferal
fauna in detail and Walker et al.
