Ammonoids are among the best of index fossils and are particularly useful for intercontinental correlations. Five major ammonoid zones are recognized in the Permian, all of which are of world-wide significance. In Texas and northern Mexico the Permian is particularly well developed and is abundantly fossiliferous, and the section in this area serves well as a standard for the rest of the world.
