Preliminary account of Late Devonian palynomorph assemblages from the Bedford Shale and Berea Sandstone Formations of central Ohio, U.S.A.
Abstract. Diverse assemblages of well preserved miospores and microplankton have been obtained from a series of samples collected across the boundary between the Bedford Shale and Berea Sandstone Formations in central Ohio. The miospores indicate a Late Devonian (pre-Carboniferous Tournaisian)* age for each of the samples. The microplankton support this age determination. A number of microplankton species not previously recorded from North America are present.
