Abstract

Coastline migration significantly affects the evolution of marine and continental environments. Tracing sea-level changes that have occurred in the past can be achieved using evidence from marine benthic associations of fossil molluscs. This paper outlines a strategy for documenting recent molluscan benthic assemblages in order to detect abrupt or gradual variations in their depositional succession that could reflect changes in the land-sea relationship. Characteristics of molluscan fossil assemblages are reviewed and an example of such an analysis is offered from research conducted in Iskenderun Bay in the northeastern Mediterranean Sea. © 2007 Springer.
