Map showing paleontological control of Paleozoic stratigraphy in New England

January 1, 1994

Assignment of Phanerozoic stratigraphic units to their proper place in the geologica time scale is based primarily on paleontology.  Radiometric methods are becoming increasingly important (Naylor, 1976), particularly where paleontological data are lacking.  This map and text are concerned only with the paleontological data bearing on the Paleozoic stratigraphy of New England.
