Phylogenetic evolution and paleogeographic migration of the larger benthic foraminifera
Industrial work with different consultant companies provided various explorations of larger benthic foraminifera-bearing carbonate facies from some Atlantic basins from offshore Brazil (Campos Basin), Venezuela (Matacaibo Basin), and SW Africa (from Kudu boreholes, offshore Namibia; from the Benguela Basin near Dombe Grand, Angola; and from the Childs Bank (Hole X-A1). These are augmented by new academic studies of new material from several localities in Spain (shallow marine sequences within the Ainsa Basin), Cyprus (the Circum-Troodos Massif Sedimentary Succession in northern Cyprus), Northwest Syria (Latakia), South Tibet (Tingri and Gamba regions), and from the Sarawak Basin (onshore carbonates, Tinjar Province). These studies have resulted in the creation of high resolution depositional and biostratigraphic scheme and a more understanding of the general regional evolution of the economically important Cenozoic carbonate facies that are found off the Atlantic margins of South America, the Tethyan region, West Africa and South Africa. Systematic comparisons of the larger benthic foraminifera enabled us to trace their phylogenetic evolution and the timing and route of their paleogeographic migration.
