Abstract (in english)
   The correlation between selected miospores biohorizons and the conodont zones characterizating the base of the newly defined stages of the Devonian (with the exception of the base of the Lochkovian) is discussed in detail. A Correlation Quality Index is used, depending on whether - reference faunas and miospores zones occur in the same lithological unit - or/and in the same section - or in different lithological units - with or without fauna or flora in common. Near all the stage boundaries, from the base of the Middle Devonian to the base of the Carboniferous, significant miospores and conodonts are present in a same region, sometimes in one and a same section, exceptionnally in a same lithological unit of one section. Close to the base of the Pragian and the base of the Emsian, miospore biohorizons are well defined in the Ardenne region but conodonts are extremely rare or absent. Therefore correlation with the G.S.S.P. is uncertain
