Abstract

Major plate tectonic, climatic and oceanographic changes
occurred during the Cretaceous. They led to paleoecological
rearrangements within the frameworks of bioconstructions
and in the composition of benthic associations of the
pelagic shelf seas. Based on recently published rotations
the plate tectonic movement of the continents and terranes
was simulated and paleogeographical changes during Early
and Late Cretaceous were illustrated. The application of the
new paleogeographic maps increases the information value
of biogeographic data. The biogeography of Late Cretaceous
inoceramids and framebuilding rudists was used as
an example to test their suitability as indicators for paleooceanographic
changes in the context of plate tectonic,
sealevel and climate changes as well as the position of climate
zones.
