Summary: The biostratigraphic distribution and abundance of Eocene to Pleistocene silicoflagellates is documented from ODP Leg 120 Holes 747A, 748A, 748B, 749B, and 751A on the central Kerguelen Plateau. Well-preserved silicoflagellates are reported here from the Middle Eocene Dictyocha grandis Zone to the Pleistocene Distephanus speculum speculum Zone. Assemblage diversity and abundance is variable, with many intervals either barren of silicoflagellates or containing only limited numbers. (Auth.)
