In most Silurian faunas, the brachiopod element predominates. Three of File Size: 1MB.   Ordovician Fossil Site, Ontario, Canada Jim Lindenas There are only a few fossil sites in the world of Ordovician age and standing on this fossilized sea floor is nothing short of an honour.

      Lower Silurian conodont biostratigraphy is poorly known and not well correlated with the parallel graptolite biozonation. The Cape Phillips Formation contains a continuous record of sedimentation, and exceptionally well preserved faunas in the unstable shelf region of the Franklinian miogeoclinal succession in the Canadian Arctic Islands and north-west Greenland and affords a rare opportunity.   Dong, X.-P., , On Cambrian-Ordovician boundary at Huanghuachang of Yichang, Hubei, in Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology, Academia Sinica, ed., Papers for the Symposium on the Cambrian-Ordovician and Ordovician-Silurian Boundaries, Nanjing, China: Hefei, Anhui Science and Technology Publishing House, by:

The Pin Formation within the Tethyan Zone of the Indian Himalayas comprises a ‐m‐thick sedimentary succession (Text‐fig. 2).The Upper Ordovician age of the lower part has been dated by conodonts (Amorphognathus ordovicicus Zone), occurring from 90 to m above the base of the upper part (– m) is represented by lower Silurian Cited by:

The Ordovician–Silurian extinction events, when combined, are the second-largest of the five major extinction events in Earth's history in terms of percentage of genera that became event greatly affected marine communities, which caused the disappearance of one third of all brachiopod and bryozoan families, furthermore numerous groups of conodonts, trilobites, and graptolites.

Following the Ordovician extinction event there was a rapid recovery of invertebrate faunas during the Silurian. The now high sea levels and warm shallow continental seas provided a hospitable environment for marine life of all kinds.

The biota and ecological dynamics were essentially similar to that of the Ordovician, but more diverse. The Ordovician (/ ɔːr. d ə ˈ v ɪ ʃ. ə n,-d oʊ-,-ˈ v ɪ ʃ.

The Ordovician, named after the Welsh. siderably more data are available on the Ordovician and Silurian coral faunas of western United States than is generally supposed.

Records of corals in the Lower and Middle Ordovician rocks of the West are few. The oldest fauna, which occurs in rocks tentatively assigned a late Early Ordovician age, consists of primitive by: The Cambrian Period was followed, million years ago, by the Ordovician Period.

At that time many species died out, to be replaced by new ones in another evolutionary “explosion”, called the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event (or GOBE). During the Ordovician, the seas surrounding North America and Europe became rich in life, especially trilobites, brachiopods and reef-forming corals.

vol, pp In the Ordovician and Silurian the present-day Severnaya Zemlya region was dominated by extensive shallow-water, mainly semi-restricted basin environments with habitat specific faunas. The occurrence of Riphidognathus aff. symmetricus at some levels in the Upper Ordovician suggests extreme shallowing episodes in the basin.

The faunas also reflect the global palaeoclimates, which were warm in the early to mid Ordovician and mid to late Silurian but which were much colder in the half million year period of the late.

The Late Ordovician and Early Silurian conodont faunas of northeast Russia are described, based on 39 conodont-bearing samples collected from Kanyon, Padun, Tirekhtyakh, Maut, and lower Sandugan Formations at Mirny Creek and Ina River sections, Omulev Mountains. The faunas are represented by a total of identifiable conodont specimens assigned to 35 species Cited by: Barnes and Bergstrom () summarized conodont faunas in the Ordovician-Silurian boundary interval, noting striking differences between Ordovician and Silurian faunas.

The position of most intense conodont faunal turnover seems to be within the Glytograptus persculptus zone, at a position about coeval with the beginnings of graptolite reradiation.

Fortey. The work of Chernyshev focused on Early Devonian faunas of the Urals; however, the gastropod fauna that is particularly similar to the Late Silurian Alexander and Farewell terrane faunas is that reported from the Taltiya River (at the mouth of the Bobrovka), now considered to be of Ludlovian (middle Late Silurian) age (Melnikov and Khodalevich.

Reefs of the Lower Silurian Chicotte Formation are the largest and most faunally diverse known on Anticosti Island, Quebec. They reach up to 25 m in thickness and m in diameter and are present predominantly at two intervals, forming a lower and upper reef cluster.
