The combined use of seismic stratigraphy and mollusc biostratigraphy in Late Neogene lacustrine deposits of the Pannonian basin offers three new approaches:First, the comparison of seismic facies and biofacies facilitates to make a distinction between biostratigraphic units and biofacies.Second, seismic datum levels permit crosschecking of discrete (magnetic, radiometric, and biostratigraphic) data, thus dating evolutionary events.Third, seismic monitoring of the sedimentary history of the
more » ... history of the basin helps in the understanding of the geographic distribution of molluscs (areals of younger forms are more and more restricted, due to progradation).
