Stimulus was mass extinctions to the climax of reef building during the Late Ordovician, prior to the end-Ordovician mass extinction; and (2) to analyze the patterns of appearances of important new skeletal contributors, the calcareous algae (solenoporaceans and receptaculitaleans) and metazoans (lithistid sponges, bryozoans, stromatoporoids. The continued health and survival of Ordovician News depends on YOU to send in items of Ordovician interest such as lists and reviews of recent publications, brief summaries of current research, notices of relevant local, national and international meetings, etc.
Ordovician is the second period of the Paleozoic Era, and covered a time span of about million years, from million years ago to million years ago. It is sandwiched between the Cambrian and the Silurian Periods. Ordovician is characterized by a mass extinction event, at both its beginning and end (the Cambrian-Ordovician and. The new choristid demosponge, Loganiella johnsoni, is described from the upper part of the Lower Ordovician Garden City Formation of southeastern Idaho. The new sponge is a relatively thin walled, low, subcylindrical form. The skeletal net is composed of tracts of curved rodlike spicules, but details have been lost on all specimens because of extensive silicification.

A new early Ordovician sponge fauna Jan Microbial carbonates were major components of early Paleozoic reefs until coral-stromatoporoid-bryozoan reefs appeared in the mid-Ordovician.
Microbial reefs were augmented by archaeocyath sponges for ~15 Myr in the early Cambrian, by lithistid sponges for the remaining ~25 Myr of the Cambrian, and then by lithistid, calathiid and pulchrilaminid sponges for the first ~25 Myr of the. Ordovician Period - Ordovician Period - Invertebrates: Invertebrate life became increasingly diverse and complex through the Ordovician.
Both calcareous and siliceous sponges are known; among other types, the stromatoporoids first appeared in the Ordovician.
Tabulata (platform) and rugosa corals (horn corals) also first appeared in the Ordovician, the solitary or horn corals being especially. Lithistid sponge–Calathium–microbial reefs were widespread on the Yangtze Platform during the Early Ordovician and are well r, the biological affinity and the role of Calathium in these reefs have remained unclear up to now.

Ordovician synonyms, Ordovician pronunciation, Ordovician translation, English dictionary definition of Ordovician. adj. Of, relating to, or being the period of geologic time from about to million years ago, the second period of the Paleozoic Era.
Ordovician Period, in geologic time, the second period of the Paleozoic Era. It began million years ago and ended million years ago. 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.
The Ordovician sponge faunas from the Precordillera are most similar to assemblages from North America, particularly to those from the northern Appalachian region (Beresi and Rigby, ; Carrera and Rigby, ) and the Great Basin area.
The lithistid Ordovician sponges are well known from North America, Australia, Europe, Asia and South America. Sponges may be simple creatures, but they basically ruled the world some million years ago, after the Ordovician mass extinction, a new study finds.
The Ordovician is a period when novel reef ecosystems appeared along with new reef constructors and skeletal-dominated reefs.
The Lower Ordovician (late Tremadocian) Fenhsiang Formation of the Three Gorges area in South China contains the oldest known bryozoan reefs (lithistid sponge–bryozoan and bryozoan–pelmatozoan reefs) alongside lithistid sponge–microbial reefs.
Here is a link to a guide that will get you quite far. It's published by a Fossil Forum member by the way. Here is a link to a site where you can download the ROM Fossils of Ontario series. You will especially want volume 1, which deals with the trilobites.
You may also want volume 3, which deals with the Pleistocene Champlain Sea fossils, which are abundant at several places around Ottawa. The Ordovician Period started at a major extinction event called the Cambrian–Ordovician extinction events about ± Mya (million years ago), and lasted for about million years.
It ended with the Ordovician–Silurian extinction event, about ±. A potentially new type of non-reef sponge-bearing micritic limestone is reported from the Upper Ordovician Xiazhen Formation of south-eastern China.
The sponges are preserved as incomplete skeletons that consist of curved bifurcated and trifurcated spicules embedded in dark micrite, and can only be recognized under a petrographic microscope.The present book, Ordovician of the World, is the proceedings volume for the 11th Symposium on the Ordovician System, sponsored by the Subcommission on Ordovician Stratigraphy of the International Union of Geological Sciences.
It contains contributions, most of which in the form of short papers, which were delivered as oral presentations.The general pattern of algal distribution was examined from both a stratigraphic and paleoenvironmental mode.
Silurian calcareous algae were first studied in the Great Basin by Rezak (), whereas the Ordovician algae described in this paper (Table 1) have not been studied previously except for a brief note by Johnson ().
