The beginnings of the sargasso assemblage in the tethys

The beginnings of the sargasso assemblage in the tethys

Palaeogeography Palaeoclimatology Palaeoecology 20(4): 297-306

An assemblage of organisms, here termed "quasi-Sargasso", occurs in the Oligocene menilite beds of the Carpathian flysch. This assemblage probably migrated into the Atlantic Ocean, probably during the Miocene. Its further evolution, which gave rise to the present-day Sargasso assemblage, took place in the middle Atlantic area.
