We report a high-resolution paleomagnetic investigation constrained by new qualitative and semiquantitative analyses of planktic and benthic foraminifera, nannofossil assemblages, integrated with oxygen and carbon isotope measurements, for the middle Eocene Scaglia limestones of the Contessa Highway section, central Italy. Calcareous plankton assemblages enable recognition of several biostratigraphic events from planktic foraminiferal zone P11 to the lower part of zone P15 and from calcareous...[Show more]
