Summary:Anomalously high values of delta 13C characterize Permian marine limestones from widely separated localities throughout the world. The onset and termination of this carbon-isotope anomaly are defined as time lines and stratigraphic markers that can be correlated from one locality to the other. The stratigraphic implications of the geochemical data are discussed in detail. [M.S.]
