The field of stratigraphy and paleontology is fundamental to geosciences in general. Despite the long
tradition of studies, there are excellent potentials for research in Taiwan due to emerging techniques and
innovative approaches. Moreover, unstudied new fossils have been collected and accumulated over the
years in Taiwan. New studies attaining higher resolution on the spatiotemporal dynamics of past faunas
have provided insights into past biodiversity patterns. The aim is to show the diversity of research topics
that are important for understanding the Earth History and biosphere in the past, particularly in the less
known tropical-subtropical West Pacific. Participants of the Stratigraphy and Paleontology session
(ST1) of the annual meetings of the Geological Society located at Taipei are encouraged to submit their
abstracts to this session.
