The planktonic foraminifera have been neglected by commercial stratigraphers in the erection of biostratigraphic zonal schemes for the Early Tertiary of the North Sea Basin. This article briefly discusses some occurrences of planktonic foraminiferal faunas in Early Tertiary strata from the North Sea Basin and adjacent onshore areas as an attempt to stimulate further research on the planktonic foraminiferal faunas of the Early Tertiary strata of the North Sea Basin.
