Abstract

ABSTRACT. The uppermost Famennian Substage or Strunian has been used widely and internationally in a chronostratigraphic sense since the nineteen-century based on macrofossils described from the Etroeungt area and fauna. A new definition based on microfossils with distinct reference sections for neritic and pelagic facies is proposed to International agreement.
