Abstract (in english)
   The beginning of the main late Paleozoic glaciation in Gondwana presents a good stratigraphic record in the western sector of the supercontinent, which was at high latitudes during the Devonian and part of the Carboniferous. 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 in constrained by invertebrate and palynomorph biostratigraphy. Late Paleozoic glacial centers began to form during the Late Devonian in western Gondwana (northern South America and northern Africa), and shifted towards eastern Gondwana during the Carboniferous
