The results of micropalaeontological, nannopalaeontological and palynological analyses of Cenozoic sections from the Northern Sulaiman Ranges in Pakistan are discussed. They are in keeping with previously published results (though in some cases significantly more refined). They enable placement of most of the sampled lithostratigraphic units in a global bio- and sequence-stratigraphic framework. Limestones appear to be associated with essentially transgressive global sequences, shales with essentially regressive sequences. Palaeoenvironmental interpretations indicate a range of depositional settings from continental through shallow marine to basinal. A number of shallow marine carbonate platform sub-environments are recognized over the Palaeocene–Eocene section
