dc.description.abstractDetailed micropaleontologic and isotopic data from the Cenomanian of the Leioa section (Basque Basin, Northern Spain) show the existence of four bioevents, one located in the lower Cenomanian (R. brotzeni biozone) two in the middle Cenomanian (Rotalipora reicheli biozone; base of R. cushmani biozone) and the fourth in the middle-upper Cenomanian boundary (R. cushmani biozone). Each bioevent is defined by drastic changes in the microfaune dynamics (planktonic and benthonic foraminifers and ostracodes) as well as by the isotopic signals o f <S” C and S ,80 . Two kinds o f bioevents may be defined in this basin: 1) those with an increase of the benthic diversities, that are associated with shallowing, nutrient increase and light lithologies, and 2) those with decreasing diversities of the benthonics, that are accompanied by deepening, nutrient decrease and dark lithologies. After the analysis of the geochemical and biological proxies in these materials, several causes related to thermic and dynamic behaviour of protoatlantic water-masses can be assigned to explain the observed bioeventsen_US
