Studied in detail were about 100 sections of the Upper Permian marine and continental deposits from the South Cis-Urals: from the south-eastern edge of the Russian Plate and the Cis-Ural Trough. Characteristic complexes of marine and non-marine ostracods were distinguished. All the regional stratigraphic units of the Upper Permian were characterized in detail from micropaleontologic point of view. Associated organic remains were specified: tetrapods, bivalves, miospores. Brief lithologo-facies descriptions of the sections from various structural zones are presented. Detailed correlations of the Upper Permian sections from the South Cis-Urals were carried out.
