The Antarctic Paleogene planktonic foraminifer zonation was revised by Huber and Quillévéré (2005) using the most consistent and reliable planktonic foraminifer first and last occurrence events that can be correlated among southern high latitude sites. Shorthand prefixes for the Antarctic Paleogene zones have been created to include ‘AP’ zones for the ‘Antarctic Paleocene’, ‘AE’ zones for the ‘Antarctic Eocene’, and ‘AO’ zones for the ‘Antarctic Oligocene’. In this chapter the zonal definitions, magnetostratigraphic calibration, and estimated ages are summarized for each of the Antarctic Eocene zones and Zone AP4.
