  • Pétrographie
  • Paléontologie

(...) pour permettre les corrélations à distance, le principe d'identité paléontologique doit s'appliquer non pas à une seule espèce mais à un ensemble d'espèces; (...) à une "faune". Telle est la méthode des faunes qui permet de définir des "faunizones" et la corrélation entre les biozones.
