The Upper Permian of Western Europe — A Palynological Approach to Chronostratigraphy
In Western Europe palynology can be applied successfully in regional correlation of Permian successions. However, palynological literature shows that there is still a strong tendency to correlate palynological data strictly with conventional schemes of chronostratigraphical classification used in the areas of investigation.
Palynological data so far available cannot be reconciled with the essentially lithostratigraphical nineteenth-century framework of current West-European classifications. An alternative concept, with special reference to the stratigraphical and geographical extent of the Upper Permian in Western Europe, emphasizes that palynology may provide the primary biostratigraphical criteria for a reappraisal of the Thuringian Stage. This stage, typified by the development of the classic Zechstein deposits, could well be regarded as a practical working unit for the classification and correlation of the latest Permian successions from all over Europe.
