Mid-Pliocene diatom and palynological assemblages north-northeast of Cape Adare, Antarctica, supplement to: Fleming, R Farley; Barron, John A (1996): Evidence of Pliocene Abthofagus in Antarctica from Pliocene marine sedimentary deposits (DSDP Site 274). Marine Micropaleontology, 27(1-4), 227-236

R Farley Fleming & John A Barron
Microfossil assemblages in Pliocene sediments from DSDP Site 274 (68°59.81'S, 173°2564'E) provide data on the age of the sediments and suggest the presence of Nothofagus (southern beach) in Antarctica during the Pliocene. A suite of 17 samples was collected in an interval from Samples 28-274-6R-1, 83-87 cm to 28-274-11R-4, 73-77 cm (48.33-100.29 mbsf). Biostratigraphic study of the abundant diatom assemblages combined with published radiolarian data indicates that the sample interval ranges in age from 5.0...
