Foraminiferal zonation of the Upper Devonian and Lower Carboniferous in Moravia (Czechoslovakia)
13 foraminiferal zones are defined in the Upper Devonian and Lower Carboniferous of Moravia. In each zone the data are given on the type locality, stratigraphical range, occurrence in Moravia, distribution in palaeobiogeographical realms as well as on systematics of stratigraphically important taxa. The foraminiferal zones are correlated and their stratigraphical resolution is compared with standard conodont and ammonoid zones as well as with regional zones based on tabulate and rugose corals and stromatoporoids. The correlation with other foraminiferal zonations, both in the Tethyan and in the North American and Siberian Realm is proposed and the implications of the data from Moravia for a better interregional correlation are discussed.
