Formal vs informal Cenozoic age / stage names

Postby CKlug » February 26th, 2010, 9:23 am

I am coauthoring a paper on the palynology of part of the Eocene of Florida. The paper is in final review but there is a question as to proper useage of age/stage names. Specifically, should the terms early/lower, middle/middle, late/lower preceding Eocene be in upper or lower case. For example, is it early Eocene and lower Eocene or is it Early Eocene and Lower Eocene? Seems this should be pretty straightforward but I'm having a hard time finding a definitive answer even from the International Stratigraphic Guide and North American Stratigraphic Code.

It depends on the views that you personally support.
