1) Marquet R. & Herman J., 2009, The stratigraphy of the Pliocene in Belgium.(39 textpages, 4 textfigures, 13 tables, 8 plates)
Abstract: This is the first of a series of publications, aiming at the description and illustration of the Pliocene stratigraphy and fauna of Belgium, within the broader frame of the European Pliocene. The stratigraphy of the Pliocene Antwerp basin in Belgium is outlined and compared with the international scale. A series of important sections is described. The description ends with a series of pictures of the sections and strata mentioned and of special or characteristic depositional features encountered.
2) Marquet R., Collins J., Jagt J., Van Bakel B., 2009, The invertebrate fauna of the Pliocene in Belgium. Part I. Annelida, Anthozoa and Crustacea.(21 textpages, 2 textfigures, 7 plates)
Summary: This is the second paper in a series aiming at describing and illustrating the Pliocene fauna of Belgium. In the first part, the stratigraphy and a number of localities were discussed. In the present paper, the Annelida (worms), Anthozoa (corals, hydrozoans) and Crustacea (mud shrimp, crabs, lobsters, barnacles) of the Pliocene in Belgium are listed and illustrated. Ostracods abound in some parts of the Belgian Pliocene, but they are not treated here yet by lack of a recent systematic revision.
