Abstract (in english)
   The historic development of the decision of the International Subcommission leading to the definition of the Lower-Middle Devonian Boundary and to the establishment of a Global Stratotype Section and Point (GSSP) is reviewed herein. The first appearance of Polygnathus costatus partitus from within the phyletically related Po.costatus group was set to mark the boundary between Emsian and Eifelian. This biochronologic level is coincident with the start of the Middle Devonian Series and with the start of the Eifelian Stage. The GSSP was selected in the Wetteldorf Richtschnitt section, Eifel Hills, western Germany. 1.90m below the historie Heisdorf/Lauch Boundary as the new Lower-/Middle-Devonian Boundary. After selection, the partitus-Boundary proved to be a precise, secure and stable tool for correlation the Lower-/Middle Devonian Boundary within all five continents
