Benthic Foraminiferal Biostratigraphy of the South Caribbean by H. M. Bolli, J.-P. Beckmann, J. B. Saunders

By H. M. Bolli, J.-P. Beckmann, J. B. Saunders

This booklet offers a big info set for benthic foraminifera present in the vintage southern Caribbean zone. It assembles information on one thousand of crucial species for the time span Cretaceous to Miocene (120 to ten million years prior to present). Age levels are positioned in the framework of these used for planktic foraminifera present in Plankton Stratigraphy (Bolli et al., CUP, 1985). The taxa were stated up to now generically, and in lots of situations new comparisons between species were made--the past due Cretaceous and Early Paleogene are fairly distinctive. this knowledge, including unique illustrations, will permit the taxa for use stratigraphically.

For example, when disasters strike ‘the family’, conceptualized as a ‘group-level’ system, it is said to ‘expand its protective role, reassuming traditional functions . . ’ Dynes and Drabek 1994:13). Difficulties in defining what constitutes a family and under what circumstances families act cooperatively (Shiva 1989; Wong 1984) are elided. , in press). This approach appears anachronistic in light of recent analysis of gender and family (cf. Wolf 1991), and it ignores feminist approaches to families as social constructs that unfold dynamically in the microprocesses of gender relations (Greenhalg 1995).

This approach appears anachronistic in light of recent analysis of gender and family (cf.

The notion that families have ‘traditional functions’ itself is a residue of a ‘sex roles’ view of the family common in 1950s sociology, now widely abandoned in the gender literature (Connell 1993; Farganis 1995; Jackson 1993; Jackson 1994).

Functionalist theory also appears in statements of disasters as ‘non-routine social problems’ (Drabek 1989; Kreps and Drabek 1996). g. crime, divorce, disaster) constitute social problems. Kreps and Drabek argue that because disasters produce objective disruptions in the world, they are thus social problems.
