The Late Cretaceous pathways of ocean circulation differ fundamentally from modern oceanographic settings and were constrained primarily by the paleogeographic continental constellation of the past. We have conducted a detailed biogeographic analysis of the global distribution of 25 of the most common genera of Late Cretaceous (Santonian–Maastrichtian) larger foraminifera from tropical and subtropical latitudes. We have established a global data base for Late Cretaceous larger symbiont-bearing foraminifera to compare the extent of biogeographic provinces, to analyze distributional patterns of genera and patterns of biodiversity, and to examine geological factors regulating shifts and pathways in the evolution of diversity through...
