Abstract (in english)
   Recent advances in the study of glacial marine deposits and their paleoclimatic significance, together with the revised older (Late Devonian-Mississippian) ages of several South American stratigraphic units previously considered to be Pennsylvanian, provide further evidence for the Late Devonian glaciation in westernmost Gondwana (Bolivia and Peru). The age of strata with evidence for glaciation is constrained by invertebrate and palynomorph biostratigraphy.
