The typically independent and isolated methods of diagenesis and sequence stratigraphy, when integrated, can serve as a powerful tool for the understanding and prediction of the distribution of diagenetic alterations of depositional porosity and permeability and of their impact on reservoir quality distribution and evolution for those working in the fields of sedimentary petrology, sequence stratigraphy, and petroleum geology.

Papers from an August 2004 symposium held in Florence, Italy, explore current issues in sedimentary petrology. Given the location of the symposium, it is not surprising that half of the 20 papers focus on Italian regions.
