Harper (1981) has stressed the need for a quantitative and statistical approach for inferring succession of fossils in time. He has argued that most, if not all, stratigraphic paleontologists make subjective assessments of t h e probabilities of competing hypotheses regarding the ranges of taxa in time. According to Harper (1981, p. 445), these assessments can and should be backed up by quantitative methods and statistical tests. g. Jeletzky, 1965) have pointed out that quantitative methods either explicitly or implicitly bring in new assumptions which could be too restrictive.

Highest occurrences for two taxa (A and B) were determined in nine sections (1-9). In most (7 out of 9) sections, the taxon A exits above B. In two sections (numbered 3 and 9 in Fig. 2), B exits above A. A variety of methods can be used t o estimate the average exit of taxon A which occurs above the average exit of taxon B. Together these average end points define an average interval zone. Average interval zones can be combined with one another in order to construct regional biozonations. Suppose that the eight exits in the average interval zone Fig.

Quantitative stratigraphers should always look for impossible arrangements in computer output and modify their algorithm if required. 17. 17. Because the spike is symmetrical, the frequency curve also must be symmetrical when it is narrow (possibly B in Figs. 17). Wider frequency curves have different values for their mode (l),median (2) and mean (3), respectively. Curves for which the order of the mode, median and mean is 123 are positively skew in the direction of time. Those with order 321 are negatively skew.
