MARCELA A. ESPINOSA
Late Cenozoic of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego
Lugar: Amsterdam; Año: 2008; p. 383 - 392
The information about fossil diatoms from Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego is scarce. The first papers are merely lists of taxa without a paleoecological interpretation. Recently, multiproxy studies include diatoms to interpret paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatic changes during the Cenozoic. The aim of this chapter is to compile the most important works in order to know the importance of diatoms for characterising aquatic paleoenvironments in high latitudes of the Southern Hemisphere. The review is divided into lacustrine and coastal-marine records. Some sequences like Laguna Los Juncos (Río Negro province) and Bahía San Blas (Buenos Aires province) were studied by the author, but are still unpublished.
