Abstract

Boundaries for all the Devonian series and stages have now been proposed by the Subcommission on Devonian Stratigraphy (SDS) of the International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS) and have been ratified by the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS). A summary of these decisions is given. All the defined Global Stratigraphic Section and Points (GSSPs) are in the marine realm, and in pelagic facies. Much work is still needed to correlate the new boundaries into neritic and terrestrial facies.
