Well-drilling exploration has revealed the absence of the Middle Ordovician Yijianfang and Upper Ordovician Tumuxiuke formations in the central Tarim uplift between the Mid-Lower Ordovician Yingshan and the Upper Ordovician Lianglitage formations of the Bachu uplift (Yang et al., ). The Moesian Platform is a crustal block within southern Europe, located beyond the southwestern margin of the East European craton. Along this margin lie terranes that were accreted to Baltica as part of Far Eastern Avalonia during Late Ordovician–Early Devonian time and terranes that already formed part of Cambrian Baltica, displaced as proximal terranes together with Far East Avalonian.

Ordovician reefs were also home to large sea lilies, relatives of sea stars. Anchored to the bottom inside calcareous tubes, they collected food particles with feathery arms that waved in the. Ordovician period: a period of the PALAEOZOIC ERA which occurred between and million years ago. Algae, particularly calcareous, reef-building forms, were common as were graptolites, corals and brachiopods. The first armoured fish evolved in the Ordovician.

The interval was a time of intense diversification (an increase in the number of species) of marine animal life in what became known as the Ordovician radiation. A comprehensive treatment of Ordovician crinoids from southwestern Europe is presented, including taxa based on articulated crowns and stems.

This summary incorporates new material, new localities. The Ordovician is the oldest system that crops out in the State, and the base Ordovician system in Southwestern Europe book not exposed.

In most areas the Ordovician is overlain disconformably to paraconformably by the Silurian, but in the southern Bluegrass region from Lebanon in Marion County to south of Stanford in Lincoln County (sheet 2) rocks of Devonian age rest directly on the.

This book should be in the library of every collector of invertebrate fossils. Even if you don't collect, this book will help you understand what the Ordovician world and the animals that inhabited it were like around million years ago, as revealed via the fossils of the Cincinnati by: During the Ordovician, most of the world's land — southern Europe, Africa, South America, Antarctica, and Australia — was connected together in the supercontinent called Gondwana.

Throughout the Ordovician, Gondwana shifted towards the South Pole where it. Ordovician Period - Ordovician Period - Regional extinctions within the Ordovician: In addition to this mass extinction, smaller-scale or background extinctions occurred during the Ordovician Period.

Most of these are poorly understood, but one that has been studied occurred in the eastern United States during the early Late Ordovician Epoch.

The book follows the trend of previous volumes devoted exclusively to the Ordovician. Most of them came after sym-posia arranged by the Ordovician Subcommission, such as The Ordovician System(Birmingham, ), Aspects of the Ordovician System(Oslo, ), Advances in Ordovician Geology(St.

All are found in the subsurface. Their distribution (Fig. 3) is statewide, except in places on the Central Kansas uplift and the Nemaha anticline.

The Ordovician System of strata was founded by Lapworth in to resolve the Murchison-Sedgwick conflict over their overlapping claims for their Silurian and Cambrian systems.

ORDOVICIAN SYSTEM, in. geology, the group of strata which occur normally between the Cambrian below and the Silurian above; it is here regarded as including in ascending order the Arenig, Llandeilo, and Caradoc or Bala series (qq.v.).

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.
