Abstract

This paper presents the first detailed biostratigraphic analysis of the uppermost Santonian through uppermost Maastrichtian
hemipelagic carbonate successions of south-east Spain based mainly on the stratigraphic distributions of planktic foraminifera. For
the time interval studied, seven biozones of planktic foraminifera have been recognized. From oldest to youngest these are: the
uppermost part of the Dicarinella asymetrica Zone, and the Globotruncanita elevata, Globotruncana ventricosa, Globotruncanita
calcarata, Globotruncana falsostuarti, Gansserina gansseri and Abathomphalus mayaroensis zones. The biostratigraphic succession
obtained from the sections studied in the Prebetic area is compared with those from sections in Tercis (France) and Kalaat Senan
(Tunisia).
