Changes in planktonic microfossil assemblages in Atlantic sediment cores, at approximately the beginning of the Quaternary, correspond in a general way with those recognized in Pacific cores. How closely the horizon marked by these changes approximates to the Pliocene-Pleistocene boundary is not yet established.
