About this book

Language: French

The Sinemurian stratotype – a Lower Jurassic stage – is an international geological reference site located in the region of Semur-en-Auxois, a medieval town in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté. Alcide d'Orbigny, one of the most productive French naturalists during the first half of the 19th century, defined this stratotype in 1849 in his 'Cours élémentaire de paléontologie et de géologie stratigraphiques'. At that time, he beneficiated greatly from the help of the active 'Société des sciences de Semur' and more particularly from several of its members. This stratotype is now materialised by several geological sections in the Semur-en-Auxois area, but also by the remarkable collection of palaeontology in the city museum, which constitutes a world reference for Sinemurian marine biodiversity. Making the most of many complementary approaches, this book presents the current state of knowledge on the Sinemurian stage, mainly from the type area. In particular, it gathers for the first time a large set of photographic plates showing remarkable fossils from this stage.

Summary in French:
Le stratotype du Sinémurien – un étage du Jurassique inférieur – est un lieu de référence géologique international situé dans la région de Semur-en-Auxois, jolie ville à dominante médiévale de Bourgogne-Franche-Comté. C’est Alcide d’Orbigny, l’un des naturalistes français les plus productifs et les plus féconds au cours de la première moitié du XIXe siècle, qui le définit en 1849 dans son Cours élémentaire de paléontologie et de géologie stratigraphiques. Il a alors largement bénéficié de l’aide de la très active Société des sciences de Semur et plus particulièrement de celle de plusieurs de ses membres. Ce stratotype s’exprime aujourd’hui par plusieurs coupes géologiques dans la région de Semur-en-Auxois, mais aussi par la remarquable collection de paléontologie du musée de la ville, qui constitue une référence mondiale de la biodiversité marine du Sinémurien. Cet ouvrage présente l’ensemble des connaissances de l’étage Sinémurien, principalement dans sa région type de Semur-en-Auxois, au travers de nombreuses approches complémentaires. Il regroupe en particulier et pour la première fois un ensemble de planches photographiques de fossiles remarquables de cet étage
