Abstract

We review past and recent advances in Oligocene chronostratigraphy (and its internal subdivisions) and geochronology, the so-called “missing” Oligocene debate of the 1960s, and planktonic foraminiferal biostratigraphies of (sub)tropical and austral biogeographies. The Oligocene spans the interval from Chron C13r.0.14 to Subchron C6Cn.2n(o), corresponding to astronomical cycles 84Ol-C13n to 58OlC6Cn. It is currently subdivided into two (Rupelian and Chattian) ages/stages. The planktonic foraminiferal biostratigraphy is characterized by a 7-fold (sub) tropical and 4-fold austral zonation, respectively.
