Figure 2

ODP Hole 953C abundance curves of selected planktonic foraminiferal (as a percentage of the total planktonic foraminiferal fauna) and position of most significant biohorizons. Grey color in Globorotalia menardii gr., Neogloboquadrina acostaensis, and N. pachyderma distributions indicates the percentage of sinistral forms. The red dotted line designates the hiatus. The following acronyms indicate bioevents: LO (Last Occurrence), FO (First Occurrence), LRO (Last Regular Occurrence), and S/D (sinistral/dextral coiling change).
