The present volume provides a synthesis of the foraminiferal studies conducted on the Mississippian of South China as a scientific cooperation between the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences, Belgium scientific institutions and individual scientists between 1985 and 2009. The foraminifers and their biostratigraphy constitute the main part of the work, but additional information on conodonts, corals and incertae sedis is also given. The samples which constitute the basis of theis study were collected in Hunan, Guangxi and Guizhou provinces and region.

The foraminifer biozonation of Belgium is emended in the light of the Chinese data. The main changes concern the Tournaisian zones MFZ4 to MFZ6, much better documented in South China, and MFZ11 which is only partially recorded in the Franco-Belgian Basin. The upper boundary of this zone indeed coincides with a major sequence boundary in Belgium, corresponding to a significant stratigraphic gap.
