In 1978, in Münster, The German Subcommission on Cretaceous Stratigraphy initiated a first International Symposium on the Cretaceous. The focus of the Symposium was on Germany and Central Europe. The proceedings were published in 1979. The second symposium was held in 1982 in Munich, the proceedings of this conference are available since 1983.
The third symposium on the Cretaceous of the Western Tethys which took place in Tübingen in 1987 was again visited by many geoscientists. The large Proceedings have been dedicated to the late TOVE BIRKELUND, the famous and highly esteemed Danish geologist.

The great variety of topics presented during the Tübingen symposium offered in this volume can be grouped together in the following subjects: (A) The Western Mediterranean, including its transition to the North Atlantic; (B) The Alps, Carpathians, Dinarids, and Caucasus; (C) Cretaceous Events; (D) Biostratigraphy, Correlation, and Palaeogeography; and (E) Volcanism and Magnetostratigraphy. This diversity will be appreciated by the members of the Cretaceous Community.
Many good photographs, a lot of figures and tables have been included, the Proceedings will serve as a very valuable contribution to all geologists interested in Cretaceous stratigraphy and palaeontology.

Of interest to: geologists, palaeontologists, biologists, geographers, students and research institutes of these fields, fossil collectors, the mining and petroleum industry, the quarrying industry, scientific libraries.
