Summary: Radiolarians are abundant and well preserved in the Neogene of the Kerguelen Plateau. They are common and moderately to well preserved in the Oligocene sequences of Site 738, where the Eocene/Oligocene boundary was observed for the first time in subantarctic sediments, and Site 744. Radiolarians are absent from all glacial sediments from Prydz Bay. Classical Neogene stratigraphic markers were tabulated at all sites. Correlations with paleomagnetic ages were made at Sites 745 and 746 for 26 Pliocene-Pleistocene radiolarian events. Many Miocene to Holocene species are missing from Sites 736 and 737, which were drilled in shallow water (less than 800 m). The missing species are considered to be deep-living forms. Occurrences and relative abundances of morphotypes at 6 sites are reported. Two new genera and 17 new species are described from the Middle Eocene to Oligocene sediments at Sites 738 and 744. Twenty-seven stratigraphic events are recorded in the Middle to Late Eocene of Site 738, and 27 additional stratigraphic datums are recorded, and correlated to paleomagnetic stratigraphy in the Early Oligocene at Sites 738 and 744. Eight radiolarian events are recorded in the Late Oligocene at Site 744. New evolutionary lineages are proposed for Calocyclas semipolita and Prunopyle trypopyrena. (Auth. mod.)
